    Google Fonts legal to use in Print Production

    This has been one of my concerns as well from the start. Everything I can find states they are for web development but since they can be downloaded designers think they can be used for print designs as well. That's why I was hoping to find some solid information or real world experiences with...

    Google Fonts legal to use in Print Production

    Has anyone else looked into the legalities of using Google Fonts in print production? I know they say that they are free to use on anything because they are open source but I've also been in this game long enough to know that nothing is free, especially fonts. Does anyone have any experience...

    Upfront to Preps 6

    We asked this question to one of our Kodak contacts just last week and she would not tell us if we could or could not. All she would tell us is that there will be a major announcement at Drupa in May in regards to what will be available to current UpFront users. I'm speculating that it will be...
