Using custom fonts in Elementor can significantly enhance the visual appeal of your website. While Elementor offers a variety of Google Fonts, you might want to use your own custom OTF (OpenType Font) files to maintain brand consistency.
Step One: Prepare Your OTF Font Files
First, ensure you have the OTF font files you want to use. Make sure they are licensed for web use and readily available.
Step Two: Convert OTF to WOFF2
OTF files are not web-friendly by default. However, you can have them converted to WOFF or WOFF@ format using Zamzar, Convertico, or other online converter tools. Convert them to the WOFF2 format, which is widely supported and optimized for web use. Several online tools can help with this conversion.
Step Three: Upload Your Custom Fonts
In Elementor (Elementor Pro version required), go to the WordPress dashboard. Navigate to “Elementor” > “Custom Fonts.” Here, you can upload your WOFF2 font files one by one.
Step Four: Assign Fonts to Elements
With your custom fonts uploaded, you can now assign them to specific elements on your website. In the Elementor editor, select an element, like a heading or text widget, and go to the “Style” tab. Under “Typography,” you’ll find the option to choose your custom fonts.
Step Five: Adjust Font Properties
Customize various font properties, such as size, weight, style, and color, to match your design requirements.
Step Six: Preview and Publish
Always preview your website to ensure the custom fonts are rendering correctly. Once satisfied, hit “Publish.”
Step Seven: Check Cross-Browser Compatibility
Test your website on different browsers to ensure your custom fonts display consistently.
Step Eight: Cache Clearing
If you face font display issues, consider clearing your website’s cache to ensure the updated fonts are served.
Following these steps, you can seamlessly integrate OTF custom fonts into your Elementor-powered WordPress website. This allows you to maintain a unique brand identity and create visually stunning web experiences for your audience.
