Hello,

 

I've just created a Logo in Affinity Photo, using an Anchor Symbol along with some Text, using the fonts "Big Carlson" and "Baskerville" (I've manually added some fonts, but I think they are default fonts that come with Affinity Photo, right?). As the Logo will be shown on websites and probably printed, too, my question is: Do I need to buy a license for these fonts, or can I use them for whatever and wherever? If I need a License, where can I buy it? Would be great if someone could answer that.

In general, fonts that come with what is called a desktop license that are obtained legally can be used for logos and printed work.

 

No fonts come with Affinity software.
