Help! Which PMN Caecilia package should I license?
0

I want to license the PMN Caecilia family in OT (all the versions, but I don't need Euro/foreign characters), and I'm overwhelmed trying to figure out which website to buy from and which package to license.

Linotpe offers PMN Caecilia Complete Family Pack in "Open Type Com" for $310 and in "Open Type Std" for $195. They're both 8 fonts. Reading the Linotype Support area on OT did not enlighten me as to the difference.

FontShop and many other websites also sell Caecilia packages. I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out and would much appreciate any advice!

You're right, the Linotype site doesn't make it easy to find the info. Here it is: http://www.linotype.com/1697/opentypeinfo.html

The difference between the com pro and std is basically how many characters beyond Western Europe they have.

Beyond that, the designer generally gets the biggest cut when you buy from him, or the first company that issued the font, I think in this case Linotype I believe. Now owned by Monotype :)

William, thank you SO much for explaining the difference and for the thoughtful advice to consider the designer's cut when deciding where to purchase. You are wonderful and I'm so grateful for your help.
