For the security of our designers and products we require a short wait on some first-time customers. We realize this might be atypical, but YWFT prides itself on protecting our community, and that means doing everything we can to prevent fraud.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have to wait for my download approval?
Typically, only a few minutes/hours. However, during high-volume days, weekends and holidays it could require 24-48 hours to process. This is a one-time only process. Once you are approved, all future orders will be ready INSTANTLY with no wait. We understand you want your files immediately. We are right there with you. But due to the online fraud that plagues us all like digital locusts, it’s gotta be this way. So please, bear with us, and rest assured that the moment your account/download is approved, we will email and let you know. If you have not received an account approval email within 24 hours of your order, please login to your account to see if the download has been activated in your order history.
Why is my credit card being declined?
Why are there multiple charges on my account?
If you submitted your charge multiple times, it will show multiple charges. This does NOT mean you’ve been charged multiple times. This is just activity from the attempts. Those activity notices go away in 3-5 business days, depending on your Bank.
I placed a lot of orders and now I’m being declined?
How do I install Fonts?
Can I re-download my ordered previous purchases?
Can I get a refund for my purchase?
Downloadable fonts and stock art are not returnable or refundable once downloaded (we log when items are downloaded), for obvious reasons. If your purchase is proven defective and you notify us within 10 days of your purchase, we will either provide a replacement/update to that item or refund your money.
I am using Internet Explorer and your site looks strange.
Strange? Oh, I’ll tell you what’s strange. The fact that you are using Internet Explorer. Seriously, you need to download and install a new web browser that is actually secure and works with current web standards. Try Firefox, Chrome or Safari. They are much better, well designed and safer browsing alternatives. You will thank us. Really. After a few days you’ll be like Jodie Foster in “Contact”, all “…they should have…sent…a poet.”

I’m getting validation errors when installing my font purchase into FontBook.
FontBook has been know to be overzealous with its error/warning messages since the release of OS X 10.8. The majority of the time, there is actually nothing wrong with the font and all you need to do is simply check the box listed at the bottom to proceed. Simply ignore the message, check the box, install, and enjoy your font.
I need a printable receipt/invoice that also shows a VAT registration number.
A printable receipt can be found in the Order History section of your account. YouWorkForThem, Inc is an American registered and operating company so we do not have a VAT number.
I wanted to purchase the Desktop OpenType + WebFont bundle, how do I fix my order?
If you purchased one of the font buying options (Desktop or WebFont) on their own but intended to purchase the bundle option for the discounted price, this can easily be corrected by visiting the Manage License section of your account. Once you select the upgrade option you would like, you will only be charged the upgrade price, the same as if you had purchased it during your original order.
Do you provide free trials or demos of your fonts?
Can I submit my Fonts or Graphics to YouWorkForThem?
