- Symbol Licensing and Services
Accessible information services
Our creative team works in partnership with organisations both at home and abroad to produce symbolised documents which cater for their individual requirements. We consult with the customer throughout the design process, creating new symbols where necessary, to ensure that the end result is fit for purpose and appropriate for different cultures and languages.
Symbol licensing for organisations
Widgit licenses symbols to organisations so that documents and other materials can be published and distributed.
Symbols in commercial products
We license symbols to other companies for use in their commercial products, for example their own software, online portals, VLEs and apps for a range of devices. Widgit has developed a very large and widely recognised symbol set which is used all over the world. This is value that can easily be added to your product in whatever format you require.
We offer licensing to companies such as architects and building contractors to help design their signage for public buildings and open spaces. We also can produce low-cost signage tiles.
Copyright and publishing guidance
Widgit supports individuals and organisations in the use of Widgit Symbols, but their usage is protected under copyright. Where the user already has a license for the symbols, and the files can only be accessed through licensed copies of software, there is no additional charge for the use of symbols (E.g. a file for Communicate In Print, SymWriter).
Where the symbols are provided in a different form, either in print, electronically, including on a website, additional copyright documentation and/or licensing fees may apply.
For advice, and permission on the use of symbols, please email email@example.com
