Hello all,

I need very simple and classic font to use for illustrations like machines with words (on/off for power button)

is Arial a free font for commercial use or anything similar?

Sorry, I'm not being lazy or anything, I find it a bit hard to read licenses as English is not my first language.

And what else do i need to do? send a copy of the license to istock attached with the illustration or something?

Thanks in advance,

Ariel is not a free font in spite of it being a very common font. I suggest you Google "free for commercial use fonts" and you will be able to find one that will substitute for Arial. You do not need to upload the font license but it is a good idea to file it on your hard drive in your font folder.
