How to install fonts on a Mac

  • Double click the font file and fontbook will open a preview of the font.
  • Click “install font” at the bottom of the preview.

This will automatically add the chosen font to your Font Book. Once you re-open the application you want to use the font in, VOILA! There it shall be. Now you’ll keep your brand in shape!
