Not all font licenses are created equal. For example... designers expect to be able to create branding with a desktop license, yet some licenses don’t allow logo creation. The Worry-Free badge is an easy way to filter out fonts with onerous or unexpected terms hidden in the licenses.
Desktop licenses are really the reason we created the worry free badge. With so many font designers using their own license, it was important to flag the licenses that don't allow usages that most people expect. It is unrealistic to expect you to check each license as you browse thousands of fonts.

Actually... Nothing. The Worry-Free badge is something we created to support a core value that we've always had and are already known for... we just got even better, that's all.
Some fonts are very prestigious and valuable for branding. The font's creator has invested significantly to create such a valuable product and therefore it demands a higher price. By offering a more restrictive license, the font designer can offer the font to you at a more competitive price if you don't need it for the usages that are excluded. We want to be able to offer these fonts to those who want them without compromising our long standing reputation of Worry-Free fonts.
Not at all. If you really love a particular font without the Worry-Free badge, no problem! It is just an indicator that you may need to get an extended license for uses that you may expect to be included. Extending a license to include more uses is still very affordable and only an email or phone call away.
You can easily show Worry-Free licenses and take all the guesswork out of your font search.
In font lists, each font is clearly marked with a single gold badge if they qualify to be Worry-Free.
On each font's product page, the available licenses are clearly marked if they are Worry-Free.
We’re dedicated to making licenses easy to understand, without hiring a lawyer. Font licenses should be one step in the font buying process, not the lion's share.
