Before going to specific steps, you can watch this tutorial video

In this article, you’ll learn how to add custom fonts and apply them to your PageFly page.

Step 1: Download and convert the font to a web font format

1.1 – Download the font

In our example, we download a font from www.dafont.com. Let’s do it.

After downloading the font you should see the following files in a zipped folder. You’ll need to convert two files with extension “otf” and “ttf”.

1.2 – Convert the font to the WOFF and WOFF 2

You need to visit https://transfonter.org/ to convert the font above.

Click Add fonts to upload the 2 files above. Tick the “WOFF” and “WOFF2” checkbox in the Formats section.

Click Convert to see the “download” link and download.

On your computer, there should be 2 files with “woff” and “woff2” extension.

1.3 – Upload the font to your Shopify store and update

In your Shopify dashboard please navigate to Settings > Files

Then upload 2 font files: woff and woff2 to your store.

In the URL column please copy URLs of those fonts to your notepad or somewhere else. We’ll use them in Step 2.2 when we apply 2 fonts to our PageFly page. In our example, the fonts URLs are: https://pastebin.com/raw/SepA71rg

Step 2: Apply the font to the PageFly page

2.1 – Open the font CSS file and replace it with Shopify font URLs

On your computer, find the font folder you downloaded in the previous part and look for the file “stylesheet.css” then open it.

You can open that file with Brackets.io or alternative app.

  • You need to replace the URL for woff2 and woff files with the Shopify URL you got in Step 1.3. So in our case, it’ll be the code below. You’ll need to copy this piece of code to the Add custom Code of your page. Let’s do it.
