This annual font subscription service provides a wide variety of high-quality fonts from several font foundries.

We provide various fonts including Japanese, Latin, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Thai, and Hebrew from the Fontworks Collection, the Hakusyu Collection, and the Latin Font Collection.

LETS Service Concept

Diverse Font Lineup!
Each LETS lineup has a wide variety of fonts and faces, from standard to design.

All-You-Can-Eat Subscription Plan
You can use all currently available fonts, and all fonts released in the future during your subscription term, at the same price. 

Secure Licensing
As there are more opportunities to deploy your content multilaterally, boosting the utility of commercial fonts in many business fields, we explicitly define our font licensing strategy.

Fonts on Tap
The fonts you need are available immediately. You can sign up for a LETS subscription online.

Additional options for additional choices
We also offer options such as the Application/Game LETS Extended License, or our GlyfPick tool.

■ One License for One Platform on One Computer

If you want to use our fonts on virtualized platforms using BootCamp on Mac OS, or VMWare, you will need one license for each operating system (e.g. one for Mac OS and one for Windows on BootCamp).

■ The subscription fee depends on your contract length.

■ You can select a 3-year (yearly/lump-sum payment) or a 1-year subscription.

3-Year Course

Initial fee 30,000 yen (excluding tax) per office (first time only)
Annual subscription fee 24,000 yen (excluding tax)/platform/year
* You may also choose to pay 72,000 yen (excluding tax) for 3 years in one lump sum.

1-Year Course

Initial fee 30,000 yen (excluding tax) per office (first time only)
Annual subscription fee 36,000 yen (excluding tax)/platform/year

Additional platforms

3-Year Course 2,000 yen (excluding tax)/platform/month
1-Year Course 3,000 yen (excluding tax)/platform/month

If you are already subscribed to Iwata, Motoya, or Monotype LETS, the initial fee is waived.
The initial fee is 30,000 yen (excluding tax) for one office regardless of the number of platforms licensed.
Please note that the 3-year course requires that you keep using the fonts for a 3-year period. If you terminate the subscription before your expiration date, it will be treated as the 1-year course, and we will invoice you for the difference.
