This video features an old UI. Updated version coming soon!

You can add more fonts to your project directly from the font dropdown in the Style panel. Just choose add fonts, and we'll take you to your Project settings → Fonts settings. There, you can upload and use your own custom fonts in any of your projects.

If the font you want to use is available through Adobe fonts (Typekit) or Google fonts, you can add them through the integrations in Project settings → Fonts.

Uploading custom fonts

If you want to use custom fonts in a project, head to Project settings → Fonts → Custom fonts and upload your font file(s) there.

 
Important — font licenses
Please read your font’s license agreement and make sure you have permission to use the font with your site before you upload it. Read Introduction to font licensing and usage to learn more.

Choosing the right font format

You can upload a variety of font file formats into your Webflow project.

Good to know 
You are able to upload a maximum file size of 2MB per font file

Supported by most browsers

Support by a few browsers

Good to know 
You do not need to upload every file format. However, you can upload a number of different formats to cover maximum browser support. WOFF is a good format with maximum browser compatibility and a good file size. If you do not have a WOFF or WOFF2 version of your font files, you can use font converters found online.

Editing installed fonts

After the fonts files have uploaded, you can edit the font family name, the font weight, and the font style.

Best practices
You can upload multiple instances of a font and select a different font weight and style for each instance. Just make sure to use the same font family for all of the instances of the same font. This will ensure the font family is properly grouped together in the Designer.

Once the font family names are correct and matched up, you can upload each font file to your project. You'll be able to see the uploaded fonts in the Designer once you re-open the Designer.

 

You can always edit your custom font settings. You can also delete uploaded fonts.

Webflow delete custom fonts

Defining fallback fonts

Fallback fonts ensure maximum compatibility between browsers and operating systems. If a user's browser fails to load your custom font, it switches to the fallback font. Fallback fonts are automatically created for each font family you upload.

‍Fallback fonts ensure maximum compatibility between browsers and operating systems. If a user's browser fails to laod your custom font, it switches to the fallback font.

You can edit the fallback font for each font family and choose the font it falls back to from a list of available fonts.

You can edit and define a specific fallback font for each of your installed custom fonts.

Testing your fonts in the Designer

In the Designer, you’ll have full access to any of your custom fonts and font weights. Just browse for the font you need in the Style panel (S) → Typography section. The fonts list is ordered alphabetically.

You can apply your custom font to any text element, any parent element, or any HTML tag to affect all paragraphs or all H1s.
