Fonts and the Purdue Font Server

*Document undergoing an update - please contact ECN if you have a font question.

Introduction

Fonts can be extremely expensive to use - contrary to what we may think, some cost tens of thousands of dollars. Purdue has a font server so employees can use official fonts for their publications. Others can use substitute fonts.

In any case, fonts are not to be installed unless one has a clear license indicating that the installation is legal and legitimate.

Professional Print Layout and Print Output:

The Purdue Extensis Font Server is for people who produce print output using InDesign. Please be aware that there is a very long wait list for this product.

To use this, let ECN know that you need this. We will help you request to be added to the small license pool.

[Internal ECN Note - further instructions can be found at http://eng.purdue.edu/jump/2097d1a]

 

Web, MS Word, or PDF Output:

For people using the Purdue fonts on regular stationary, pdfs, or electronic media, Purdue's marketing and Media group recommends using the Brand Toolkit http://www.purdue.edu/brand/ These are optimized for MS Office and are suitable for Purdue brand fonts.
