I'm Béla Frank, running Frank Fonts. I've been an avid reader of Typedrawers for years. Recently, I was accepted to this great community - thank you! - and this is my first post here, I believe.
I released my own designs through different resellers over the years. Since 2018 I've been running my own foundry and self-publishing my new typefaces. I've always been dealing only with my own designs.
Now, I'm about to become a distributor which is something completely new to me. I'm planning to team-up with others and license their yet-unreleased type designs with exclusive rights to distribute them through my foundry.
I have some faint ideas about what I'd do, but I also hope there's more I can learn from you. I was wondering if there's any insight, advice, experience your could share? What's the best way to ensure that both parties make the most out of this? Is it a flat-fee or percentage after every sale or a mix of both? Is there a well-tried way to do this or everyone has different models?
Any response would be a great help, I believe.
Ps.: I edited the post so it's more clear now what I'm interested in now, I hope.
