I hope you’re well and enjoying these sunny days! This post is mainly about blogging so if that’s what you do then you’re at the right blog post! Today I’m writing about my top 5 WordPress plug ins for adding custom fonts. These can be free fonts or some that you may have purchased to use on your blog. The whole world seems to be into typography at the moment as it’s used for a whole host of different reasons. – and there is an abundance of custom fonts available to choose from, whatever the niche of the blog or the written piece might be.
Using WordPress as your platform (I’m on WordPress too) works out really well if you’d like to add your own custom fonts. By using a WordPress Font Plugin you can change your fonts on your website by the click of a button.
My top 5 WordPress Plugins for Custom fonts are as follows;
5. Easy Google Fonts – This plug-in gives you instant access to thousands of fonts, meaning you should be able to find the perfect font for any online project you might have. Much like the other plugins above, you are able to add custom fonts using this.
4. Custom Fonts – The name says it all really! If you are looking to add custom fonts onto your website that used WordPress then this is perfect to use and add your custom font once it’s been downloaded to your computer. It accepts a variety of different formats. Once you’ve added your custom fonts you are able to use them immediately.
3. Font Awesome – If you pick up this free plugin then you have access to to Awesome Fonts Free and Awesome Fonts Pro. You can also access an icon library which is great for personalising your blog and posts.
2. WP Google Fonts – This the first plug in I ever used to change the font on my website. With over one million users who have activated this plugin on their blogs around the world. This one is definitely very popular amongst the WordPress blogging world.
1. Fontsy.com – Fontsy is an all in one web font management plug in for WordPress. It allows you to import your own web fonts to your blog as well as giving you access to their huge free font library. The great thing about it is that no coding is required and I like that the plugin is completely free to download. You can activate it at the click of a button.
There are options to purchase many premium fonts and font bundles from the plugin and from time to time they offer free fonts in their marketplace which you can use straight away from their font library tab on WordPress.
Personally, I quite like a simple font for my blog posts, especially the ones that feature quite a bit of writing so that it’s easy to read. For something like a full product review I would like to make the words pop out a bit more and this is the perfect way to do so. All of the plugins I’ve mentioned are free.
