Font Files

Fonts can be uploaded and assigned to templates to give your customers options for changing the text in the Print Editor. Font’s must be TrueType Fonts. Fonts can be uploaded in sets that can contain one of each of the following: Regular, Bold, Italic, Bold Italic. You're not required to upload as a set but for some basic fonts, it makes sense to so the users can use the text controls to bold or italicize without having to select each font separately. 

Add New Font

  1. From your PrintNow admin, go to Editor/Font Files.
  2. To add a new font click the +Add New Font button.
  3. Enter a Name on the font that will display in the font drop-down list within the Print Editor. This doesn't have to match the actual font name and provides a way for you to change it without alternating the actual font files. 
  4. Click the Select File button and find the appropriate font. Continue if you're making a set.
  5. Click Save to upload.
  6. Your font should display in the main library at this time. 

Test Fonts

Before using your fonts in production it's your responsibility to test them properly. PrintNow can't guarantee that all fonts will work properly as there are many factors that go into font making and the rules are different for online use. We recommend testing each font by making a template with a grid background and comparing the Print Editor view to the print-ready PDF. Check to make sure there are no positioning issues using the grid as a reference point. Fontlab.com as tools for both making and troubleshooting fonts if you want the best tools available to get the most out of your font management. 

Deleting a font

It’s important to note that deleting a font only removes that font from the lists in PrintNow.  if you have products, projects or orders using that particular font they will be used unless they are resaved with a different default font.
