Webfonts

Our webfonts are high quality TrueType fonts which we offer in three different web formats: WOFF (Web Open Font Format), EOT (Embedded OpenType) and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).

Licensing

Our web font license fee is a one-time fee: it is neither time-limited nor depending on the amount of visitors on your web site. Included in the license fee is the delivery of web fonts in WOFF and EOT and SVG formats, which are based on our manually screen optimized TrueType fonts.

License costs for 1 font (= 1 style) and 1 domain: 150 Euro.

Our license prices contain generous font family rebates: the more fonts/domains, the lower the price per font/domain. For example:
1 font: 150 Euro
2 fonts: 257 Euro
3 fonts: 354 Euro
4 fonts: 446 Euro

Subdomains and variations of the domain name are included in the price as long as they are all administrated by the same person/company.

Additional domains cost extra, for example:
1 font, 2 domains: 207 Euro
1 font, 3 domains: 254 Euro
1 font, 4 domains: 296 Euro
1 font, 5 domains: 335 Euro

If you would like to order, please send us a short message with the following information:
• required font family and weights
• name of the domain
• billing address (+ VAT number)
• name and address of the licensee

In case you would like to receive a quote in advance or need any other additional information, please let us know.

Display performance

Due to the various rasterizers that are at work inside the different operating systems webfonts will not be displayed with the same consistent quality across different browsers. To ensure optimal on-screen performance in all browsers our webfonts are carefully hinted. LucasFonts has over 10 years of experience in producing high-quality TrueType fonts for the office environments.

Embedding EOT and WOFF

The embedding of webfonts takes place in the CSS document. Due to the varying support of different font file formats in different browsers each webfont has to be embedded twice. This means that for the time being two declarations are necessary, one for InternetExplorer, and one for browsers that support WOFF.

Your CSS should look like this:

@font-face {
font-family: "MyWebfont";
src: url("fontname.eot");
src: url("fontname.eot?#iefix") format("embedded-opentype"),
url("fontname.woff") format("woff");
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}

Now you can add the embedded font to your CSS tags. Don’t forget to specify alternative fonts for browsers without support for the WOFF format:

body {
font-family: MyFont, Verdana, sans-serif;
}

Embedding EOT, WOFF and SVG

Dealing with three formats is a bit more complicated:

@font-face {
font-family: "MyWebfont";
src: url("fontname.eot");
src: url("fontname.eot?#iefix") format("embedded-opentype"),
url("fontname.woff") format("woff"),
url("fontname.svg#fontname") format("svg");
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}
