I have added new fonts in <my theme>/web/fonts, and declared those fonts in <my_theme>/web/css/source/_typography.less. But still my custom fonts not reflecting in my pages.

I'm missing any configurations? anybody have idea over here?

  • IS the browser attempting to load the font? Is there a 404 error? – Ben Crook Mar 17 '17 at 9:57
  • no, it is still picking the default fonts. – seeni Mar 17 '17 at 10:15
  • Could you please show the <theme_dir>/web/css/source/_typography.less file code? – mageDev0688 Mar 17 '17 at 10:53
  • similar to blank theme _typography.less, screencast.com/t/RoFChdMyrNi – seeni Mar 17 '17 at 11:01
  • Have you cleared all caches and deleted var/view_preprocessed and pub/static/frontend? – Ben Crook Mar 17 '17 at 13:03

You can add your custom font in your custom theme, creating the custom.css file and include css in the default_head_blocks.xml like the below files:


<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no"/>
        <css src="css/custome.css" /> 

And then put your fonts in the below custom theme directory.


And include your custom fonts in the custom.css code like below:


@font-face {
    font-family: 'Playfair Display';
    src: url('../fonts/sitefont/Playfair Display.eot');
    src: url('../fonts/sitefont/Playfair Display.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Playfair Display.woff2') format('woff2'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Playfair Display.woff') format('woff'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Playfair Display.svg#Playfair Display') format('svg');
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
    font-stretch: normal;
 unicode-range: U+0020-2212;
@font-face {
    font-family: 'Century Gothic';
    src: url('../fonts/sitefont/Century Gothic.eot');
    src: url('../fonts/sitefont/Century Gothic.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Century Gothic.woff2') format('woff2'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Century Gothic.woff') format('woff'), url('../fonts/sitefont/Century Gothic.svg#Century Gothic') format('svg');
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
    font-stretch: normal;
 unicode-range: U+0020-F003;

After include the fonts run the run the php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy command.

Hope this help. It's working for me.

  • I have tried with the Magento 2 way like using _typography.less file. and now it works fine. – seeni Mar 18 '17 at 13:00
  • Thanks in future I will use the Magento 2 way to use the custom fonts. – mageDev0688 Mar 22 '17 at 10:08
  • @seeni Can you please help me in loading fonts in emails. I am facing the same issue. – Sejal Shah Aug 2 '17 at 12:43
  • @SejalShah, did you get any solution ? – Camit1dk Jan 22 '18 at 6:54

Along with the _typography.less change, variables.less file also need update. Instead of Open sans font we have to declare our custom font. Then it works fine.

  • Have you did any other thing ? because i have change _typography.less and _variables.less both file but font is still not update – Camit1dk Jan 16 '18 at 5:53
