Frequently Asked Questions

Who are we?

We are an independent type foundry, founded by typeface designer Lucas Sharp and partner Chantra Malee. Learn more about us on our about us page.

Where are we located?

Our studio is located in Brooklyn, NY. Currently, we are back and forth between NYC and Granada, Spain. If you want to contact us email us at info@sharptype.co or use our contact form below.

What is a EULA?

EULA stands for End User’s License Agreement, and is the agreement between us, the owners of the fonts, and you, the users of the fonts. Depending on your purchase, our software license will grant you specific usage rights of our font software. Please read the our EULA carefully. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at licensing@sharptype.co.

Does your Desktop License allow use of your fonts for broadcast media?

No. If you are interested in licensing one of our fonts for broadcast media, you will have to obtain a license addendum for the desktop license. You can reach out to us directly for more information at licensing@sharptype.co.

Do you offer App embedding licenses?

Yes. Although not available for direct retail purchase on our website, we do offer App embedding licenses via direct inquiries. If you wish to purchase an app embedding license, please contact us at licensing@sharptype.co.

How do I purchase a font?

You can purchase our fonts through our website, which processes secure transactions through Shopify. Visit our typefaces page to see our retail catalog, go to the font you wish to license, and click the buy button.

Can I extend my current license?

If you need to license more computers for your desktop license, more webpage views for your web license or more app downloads for your app embedding license, just let us know at licensing@sharptype.co and we’ll contact you for the license upgrade.

If you have licensed a single style or a pair of fonts and wish to upgrade to the full family, please contact us at licensing@sharptype.co and we will subtract the cost of your previously licensed styles from the cost of the full family license.

Do you design custom typefaces and/or logotypes?

We do, and would love to hear about your project. Please direct your inquiries to info@sharptype.co or use our contact form below. You can check out some of our most recent custom typefaces and logos on our case studies page. You can also see some more of our custom logotypes here.
