What is Marketplace?

Marketplace is a collection of fonts that you can purchase and add to your Adobe account.

Choose the specific weights and styles you need, or purchase a complete package. The prices are set by the foundries, and purchases are charged to the credit card you have on file for your Adobe Stock subscription. (We’ll ask you to add one during checkout, if this is your first purchase.)

Your new fonts will appear in your font library, as well as under the Purchased section of My Adobe Fonts, and are immediately ready to use on the web or in desktop software.


Font purchases are not available to Creative Cloud Enterprise subscriptions, Enterprise ID accounts, or Federated ID accounts.

How is Marketplace different than buying fonts from the foundry?

Marketplace fonts are not downloaded and installed in the font directory of your computer; they are added to your desktop software via the Creative Cloud desktop application or included in your websites with the embed code that we provide

You won’t have direct access to the font files, so you will need to have the Creative Cloud application installed to use the fonts. If you move from home to office or upgrade your computer, the fonts go right along with you.

How do I use the fonts I purchase?

You'll use them in the same ways as library fonts. You can activate them on your computer through the Creative Cloud desktop application and use them in a wide range of desktop programs, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office, iWork, and more. You can also add them to a website using the embed code that we provide.

Can I use Marketplace fonts for [your project idea here]?

For most projects: yes! Marketplace font purchases can be used in a variety of ways without any additional licensing. This includes creating:

  • Branding and promotional materials
  • T-shirts and other physical merchandise
  • Title cards for video and movie projects
  • Graphics for your business or website
  • Brochures in either PDF or printed form
  • A personal, corporate, or client website

What’s more, any digital assets created with the fonts can be delivered to your clients. (Though you can’t include the font files themselves).

For all the details, see our licensing FAQ and the full Terms of Use.   

What happens if a font I’ve purchased from the Marketplace isn't offered in the future?

Any previously-purchased Marketplace fonts will remain licensed to you for both web and desktop use, even if they are no longer available for sale.

Can I use Marketplace with my Creative Cloud subscription?

Yes, Marketplace fonts can be used alongside all the fonts from the subscription library.

Do I need to be a Creative Cloud subscriber?

No, you can buy and use Marketplace fonts on your Adobe account without a paid Creative Cloud subscription.
