Here are some of my fonts that have been used in other applications...

  • The design is cut into metal which is then formed into jewellery - note that you cannot have any loose bits such as aunkards or dulaunkards - these have to be joined to other bits
    • Pendants
    • Bracelets
  • Key Fobs - the design forms moulds within which the piece is cast
  • Rear-View-Mirror tags
  • Company logo
  • Education - the fonts are used to encourage children to learn how to read and write Gurmukhi so they have to be easy to read and appear friendly - hence the use of Karmic Sanj
  • Miscellaneous Printed - Stickers, Tee-Shirts and so on - these can be just about anything
  • Tattoos - the design is generated and then a skilled hand painstakingly (no pun intended) transfers it onto skin
  • Adobe charging you and getting it wrong as well???

Jewellery

Pendants

Largely Raaj but Lanma is also there.

Bracelets

Shortened tail versions of Raaj - a bracelet will tend to catch on things so this tends to reduce that chance

Key Fobs

Choti, Raajaa and Raaj. The shorter words have been stretched a bit.

Rear-View-Mirror Tag

Raaj.

Company Logos

Rupe.

Gurmukhi Old Letterpress.

Education

Largely Karmic Sanj because it is monolinear and looks hand-drawn

Cards

Bulara, Adhiapak, Dukandar and so on.

Miscellaneous Printed

GHP Full, Dukandar and so on. Stickers, tee-shirts, oven gloves ... anything ... are just printed so virtually anything can be used

Tattoos

These are largely done in Dukandar and Raaj (with various lengths of tail) but the last one is done in Purani Primer

Adobe

Adobe has seen fit to take my font and make images out of them and then charge for it - this image retrieved on 14/1/2021.


As you can see, for an image that you have virtually no content control over
And they have these two words in the wrong order, just to add insult to injury,
you are being charged £6 for the privilege (first payment option below).

All of my fonts are free (and always have been) and you can download very capable, cross-platform compatible image processing software that can handle the complexities of UniCode fonts and then do anything you like with for free. Here, it is just a 'stock phrase' (as they would see it) with nothing special about the processing and being charged for it but also getting it wrong. It is not as though there is a rendering process that takes 20 minutes to complete or anything like that. All of the hard work has already been done by me and doesn't cost them anything. Clearly, they haven't spent any money on research.

You are free to use these fonts for personal or commercial use for free within the bounds of the GPL.

I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources. If I insisted on charging for them then you would be looking at anything from around £50 for a single user to £10,000 for a single multinational film production (see here for an idea of the going rates for charged-for fonts from those who do insist that you always pay). You can see from the fact that my fonts are used in so many films that their quality is no less than that of other fonts. However, as the owner of all rights over these fonts, I give you the option of using them without paying.

If you are using the fonts for business purposes and your business model includes rewarding those who have invested in the intellectual property that you are using, then you might want to consider making a contribution towards the time, artistic and technological investment that I have made in these fonts as well as the ongoing costs of running and maintaining a production server 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, along with the other bills that go with that and so on.
