Is there a cost for any of these fonts?

No, all Google Fonts are open source and are without cost.

Can I use any font in a commercial product?

Yes, you can use them commercially, and even include them within a product that is sold commercially. Usage and redistribution conditions are specified in the license. The most common license is the SIL Open Font License. Some fonts are under the Apache license or Ubuntu Font License. You can redistribute open source fonts according to those conditions.

Yes, you can use Google Fonts within any logo.

Can I use the font in print, on websites, in apps, in teaching materials, e-books, store fronts, jewelry?

Yes, you can use the fonts on any surface.

Where can I learn more about Typography?

Visit Google Fonts Knowledge.

Can I use CSS features like text shadows and rotation with web fonts?

Absolutely. Any CSS feature that can be applied to text on the web works well with all kinds of fonts – web fonts, local fonts, and system fonts.

The exception to this is the CSS outline effect, which does not work well with variable fonts due to contour overlaps.

Can I modify the appearance of text made with a font in a design tool for commercial use? For example, may I change the slope, thickness, and space between letters?

Yes, text in bitmap images or vector graphics made with fonts from Google Fonts can be modified, because the result isn't another font, but an image of text.

You can also modify fonts themselves with font editor tools, subject to the license conditions.

What are variable fonts?

Variable fonts are a recent evolution in typography. This format lets you customize a typeface in the ways provided by the typeface designer. All styles are stored in just one or two font files instead of separate files for every style. Learn more from Google Fonts Knowledge and Web Fundamentals.

How do I suggest a font to add to Google Fonts?

Google Fonts only adds fonts licensed under the SIL Open Font License. If you know of a font under this license that you would like to see, please contact Google Fonts.

How can I use the Google Fonts GitHub?

What does using the Google Fonts API mean for the privacy of my users?

The Google Fonts API is designed to limit the collection, storage, and use of end-user data to only what is needed to serve fonts efficiently. The use of the Google Fonts API is unauthenticated and the Google Fonts API does not set or log cookies. Requests to the Google Fonts API are made to resource-specific domains, such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. Font requests are separate from and don't contain any credentials sent to google.com while using other Google services that are authenticated, such as Gmail.

The Google Fonts API logs the details of the HTTP request, which includes the timestamp, requested URL, and all HTTP headers (including referrer and user agent string) provided in connection with the use of our CSS API.

IP addresses are not logged.

Access to logged data is kept secure. Aggregate usage stats are used to measure the popularity of font families and are published on the Google Fonts analytics page.

To learn more about the information Google collects and how it is used and secured, see Google's Privacy Policy.

Can I use the Product Sans or Google Sans fonts?

No, Google owns these fonts and they are only available for use in Google products, by Google.

My type is showing a few letters out of sequence in some apps – how do I fix it?

This can happen when font caches become obsolete, or when an installed font no longer matches a newer web font. Remove all the current font files for that family from your device, reboot, and then download and install the latest font files.

Where is the homepage sample text from?

"Almost before we knew it, we had left the ground" is from A Trip to Venus, by John Munro.
