Brand Bootcamp – Installing Fonts (PC)

Need to install on a Mac? We’ve got you covered.

The first step to keeping a tight backside brand is consistency. You now have the tools to do so (via your nifty Branding Guide) so what are you waiting for?

Install those fonts and keep your brand in shape!

Important

  • Make sure you are installing the desktop fonts and not webfonts. The fonts we provide you as a part of the Branding Guide are desktop fonts. If we designed your website for you, the correct fonts are already installed in your WordPress site, so you don’t have to worry about that.
  • Zipped folders MUST be unzipped. Some Windows operating systems allow you to peek inside a zipped folder. This does not mean it is actually unzipped.

Windows 7

  • Unzip the fonts first. Fonts cannot be installed if they are zipped.
  • Double click the font file and click ‘Install.’

Windows Vista

  • Unzip the fonts first. Fonts cannot be installed if they are zipped.
  • From the ‘Start’ menu select ‘Control Panel.’
  • Then select ‘Appearance and Personalization.’
  • Then click on ‘Fonts.’
  • Click ‘File’, and then click ‘Install New Font.’
  • If you don’t see the File menu, press ‘ALT’.
  • Navigate to the folder that contains the fonts you want to install.
  • Select the fonts you want to install.
  • Press the ‘Install’ button to install the fonts.

Windows XP

  • Unzip the fonts first. Fonts cannot be installed if they are zipped.
  • From the ‘Start’ menu select ‘Control Panel.’
  • Select the ‘Appearance and Themes’ category.
  • Select ‘Fonts’ from the ‘See Also’ panel at the left of the screen.
  • In the Fonts window, select the ‘File menu’, and choose ‘Install New Font.’
