Fonts - Uploading fonts

As well as access to our extensive built-in font system, DPG allows you to upload your own custom fonts to use on your websites.

Make sure that any fonts you upload are legally eligible for web embedding and that you're complying with all applicable licenses.

Preparing fonts for upload

To use a custom font you'll need to supply it in all of the following file types:

  • .eot
  • .ttf
  • .woff
  • .woff2

You can also include an optional .svg file. The .svg is no longer required by most modern operating systems, but can help some older machines render your font correctly, so include it if possible.

You may need to convert your font to the required file types. There are a number of online services to do that, such as Font Squirrel and Everything Fonts.

Uploading fonts to DPG

This option requires you to be in edit mode Standard, learn more about edit modes here.

From the website screen, go to Fonts, then Your fonts. Click the Upload button at the bottom of the page. Add the required font files and fill in the information (see below), then click OK.

Required information:

Name - Font name.

Style - Whether the font is regular or italic.

Weight - The font weight should be stated at the font's source. If the font only has one weight, choose normal.

Once you have uploaded a custom font you can use it in the Design section of your website alongside the system fonts.

Font families

You can add multiple versions of the same font in different weights.

Once added, you can use the Font weight slider in the Design section as normal.

Exporting your fonts

Custom fonts are attached to websites. If you need to rebuild your site, you can easily export your fonts in the correct formats to be uploaded to another DPG website.
