How to install fonts (PC users)

Updated: Mar 3, 2021

Hello font lovers!


In today’s tutorial we want to show you how to install our fonts on your computer! Don’t worry, we have your back! And don't be afraid, it is really easy! So, let’s get started.



·STEP ONE

(and the most important)

Download the font!


·STEP TWO

Save the zip somewhere on your hard disk, go to the place where it is saved and extract the files you have downloaded: Double-click on the zip to open it, then either click on "Extract all files"

Note: For the 20th century versions of Windows you must install an unzip tool first.

·STEP TREE

  • For Windows 10/8/7/Vista Select the font files (.ttf, or .otf)*** then Right-click > Install

  • For any version of Windows Place the font files (.ttf, or .otf)*** into the Fonts folder, usually C:\Windows\Fonts or C:\WINNT\Fonts (can be reached as well by the Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > Fonts).


***super important

If you get a .ttf and .otf font files in the same folder we would recommend the .otf file for installation because the .ttf is an “older” font file type.


Let me explain why.


Both types include all of the same characters, but the .otf font file can automatically make certain replacements that are programmed into the font, things like stylistic alternates, ligatures, swashes, etc. to make your text automatically awesome and with out to much effort.

We provide both files because some programs only work with .ttf font files, in these cases you’ll have to install this font file (but honestly it is very strange that this happens because as we mentioned before this kind of font file is “old”).


With Love, Maria Feliz Team.
