Paid License Summary

Icons are licensed “per seat,” like most software. A single professional can use the icons for unlimited number of:

  • Products
  • Clients — for example, if you’re a freelance or an agency
  • Companies — for example, if your company has multiple branches

However, a company should buy a license for each employee who works with the icons.
