    I know that there are many of you out there with Macs, and I wanted to ask you guys a simple question, designer to designer. Could someone send me Helvetica? I need Helvetica, Helvetica Bold, Helvetica Neue (the thin version) and, if this isn’t too much, a regular Helvetica Neue. I had it on my old hard-drive, but I switched to a new one, and I lost many of the files I had. If you can help, let me know, I can give you my email.


    How do fonts work as far as if I want to display Helvetica on my website but it’s not installed on the user’s computer? Could I use @font-face to display it?

    How come macs come standard with Helvetica but not PCs.

    Also whats the legality of the above link, just wondering out of curiosity because I thought it’s copyrighted or something?


    @sanclementejoe I am also curious as to the link Karl provided. If you look at Helvetica on Linotype, all variants have a cost:

    In regards to displaying fonts on the web, you can do so only if their license allows it (unless you use images, but that is a terrible idea).


    Linotype owns Helvetica not Haas and it’s certainly not overrated but overused.
