You can download the free version graphics, or purchase an annual plan for $99 a year with access to 6000+ Pro icons (plus 1555 free icons) and 5 seats for your company to create Pro icons. Here’s Font Awesome’s pricing:
What are Paid seats?
The Customers can grant Font Awesome Pro software licence to designers, developers, and copywriters in their organizations to create Pro icons.
The Seat Count refers to the number of “seats” the Customer bought through the Web Store. The Customer may appoint up to that many individuals as Creators under this agreement at any given time. The Customer may remove people as Creators under this agreement, to make room for others within the Customer’s Seat Count. To remove Creators, the Customer must first ensure that they stop using Pro Icons and remove copies of Pro Icons and Pro Software from their computers.
The Customer may download Pro Icons and Pro Software from the Web Store, make backups, and share copies with their Creators.
Who should/shouldn’t use seats?
Font Awesome have specified licensing guidelines, so you can designate the right individuals to design and use the icons for their assets. You can grant access to the Pro Software to clients or people within your organization for content creation, but not outsiders such as visitors/users, other third parties who are not direct users of Font Awesome and software bots.
Font Awesome’s Pageview function as a Site Tracker
Under the Pro Plan, Font Awesome tracks the number of page views your site has accumulated over one month. Each time one of your pages with a Font Awesome Kit is loaded, you can capture some stats on your site’s monthly traffic using Pageview.
In Font Awesome, there’s a development kit with unique code that developers can use on websites to load vector graphics. They can also use the NPM Private repository to build new web applications.
