Veer Becomes Worldwide Provider of Extended Licensing for the Adobe Type Library
Extended licensing of over 2,500 Adobe fonts in 500 families now available at Veer
Calgary, Alberta, March 18, 2003 - Veer, a provider of unique visual elements and design-related products, announces today that the company has been named a provider of extended type licensing by Adobe Systems. Adobe's designation is a testament to Veer's renowned service and support of the Adobe® Type Library.
The Veer team has a long history of supporting Adobe type, including three years servicing the product as founders of EyeWire (subsequently sold to Getty Images). Principals of Veer were also responsible for marketing type as a division of Adobe for four years during the mid 1990s. With the addition of Adobe type extended licensing, Veer is the only provider to offer the full spectrum of visual elements and licensing options. Through Veer's web site and call center, creatives can now purchase and license the Adobe Type Library, along with royalty-free and rights-managed photography, illustration, and motion from leading and emerging brands.
"We are delighted with this alliance," said Drina Lazar, one of the founding partners of Veer. "This agreement is a demonstration of Veer's unrivaled ability to provide quality service through our rich understanding of the needs of the creative community. The Adobe Type Library is known for its superior technology and attention to aesthetic detail. By combining these qualities with Veer's strength in the pre-sales, transactional, and technical components of type licensing, we can create a better experience for the customer."
"I was thoroughly impressed with the ease in which I was able to purchase five Adobe typeface families and extended licensing for 95 additional seats in one transaction," said Mary Lenzmeier, IT Services at Saint John's University. "The Veer service representative provided detailed information on the cost structure, set up my organization on account, and sent the licensing certificate immediately. I have typically come to expect such transactions to take weeks or months by the time I receive the official paperwork. With Veer it was timely and efficient; I had the fonts and my department was legal in no time."
"With the recent conversion of the Adobe Type Library fonts to OpenType format, creative professionals now have improved cross-platform document portability, simpler font management, and enhanced glyph coverage," said Harold Grey, group product manager of Type at Adobe. "Veer's expert type knowledge and service capabilities make the company an excellent choice for publishing customers who require extended licensing for the Adobe Type Library."
