We do not recommend changing your foundry name. This is confusing for customers.
If you must change your foundry name, it is possible to do so. Today, there are two options below.
- We can change the ‘displayed’ foundry name. This will cause your foundry name to change everywhere on MyFonts except the URLs. This is the simplest option and the one we recommend.
- You can also create a second foundry with the new name where you can add new fonts going forward. This will require you signing a new distribution agreement for the new foundry. We recommend being very strategic about this option; the new foundry should have a unique brand and it should make sense to customers why it is separate. For example, if you have a font called "Quagmire" and you want to release a follow up font called "Quagmire Pro", you should release this in the same foundry as the original. This would be very confusing for customers if it were to go into a different foundry brand.
