A clear and enjoyable reading experience hinges on the legibility of text copy, especially when reading on screen. This is why Monotype has developed the eText collection of fonts specifically tailored for the text-heavy display environments of e-readers, tablets, mobile devices, and the Web.
About the DesignOpen
A suite of the most important typefaces for textual content — including the Neue Helvetica, ITC Galliard and Monotype Baskerville — these designs have been designed and optimized by Monotype’s experts to enhance the reading experience at the smaller point sizes that contemporary Web and device environments demand.
Monotype typeface designers worked to impart a richer contrast, an even color, and slightly taller lowercase characters, all while ensuring that the typefaces appear as unmistakable cousins of their original print designs. The designs also include small caps and old style figures for professional-quality publishing design.
And because the eText typefaces' forerunners are among the world's most popular and important text typefaces for print media, you now have the flexibility of extending your designs to an additional gamut of digital environments.
All typefaces in the collection have been hand-hinted to display as clearly as possible across mobile devices from smartphones to tablets and e-readers. The fonts can be used with Monotype’s Edge™ tuning technology, enabling publishers to create and deliver high-quality, readable text across various platforms, formats and devices, including E Ink® screens. The fonts look and perform best with devices that use Monotype’s iType® font engine.
The eText collection is available here for online use through subscriptions to the Fonts.com Web Fonts service. To learn how to license the new eText collection for use in devices, click here to contact us.

Fonts can also be used for creation of print documents, static images (JPEG, TIFF, PNG) and logos.

You can view and modify the installation limit from the cart. App installations can be spread out across the platforms your app is available for. A new license is not required to cover updates to an app, however installations of newer versions of your app do count toward your installation limit.Learn more about licenses for mobile apps
Licenses for electronic publications (eBooks)
An electronic publication license can be used for the embedding of fonts into electronic documents including e-books, e-magazines and e-newspapers. A license covers only a single title but is valid for the full operating life of that title. Every issue of an e-magazine, e-newspaper or other form of e-periodical is considered a separate, new publication. Format variations do not count as separate publications. If a publication is updated and distributed to existing users, a new license is not required. However, updated versions issued to new customers are defined as new publications and require a separate license.Learn more about licenses for eBooks
Server licenses authorize the installation of a font on a server that is accessed by remote users or website visitors. These licenses are commonly used by Web-based businesses providing goods that are personalized by its users such as business cards, images with captions and personalized merchandise. Users are not allowed to download the font file and the font may not be used outside the server environment. The font may not be employed for a software as a service (SaaS) application in which the service is the actual product and not the means of providing the product. Server licenses cover a set number of CPU cores on production servers (development servers are not counted) on which the font is installed. The license is valid for 1 year.Learn more about server licenses
