Hi guys,

Everybody knows that Helvetica is awesome font, it’s so popular, that I couldn’t find the license for it… Can I use it in designs that I’m planning to sell here at ThemeForest? I’m thinking to use Helvetica Condensed Medium with cufon replacement technique.

Nope….it won’t be legal to use it unfortunately. Try Helvetiker:

I think that would be a legal alternative.

Man, I think you can’t use that font, Helvetica is a commercial font.

Helvetiker is too wide :(

Anyone knows a good alternative for a Helvetica? Available for commercial use?

Arial? :P

That’s usually what I fall back to when using it in my CSS : Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif

I guess it is arial… But Helvetica Condensed Medium is soooo much better

I know, but we can’t always get what we want. :(

I’d love to use ITC Lubalin, but I can’t. :\
