There are so many different things you can portray with just the visuals of your writing. The font, colours and sizing can really reinforce your subject and make it much more readable for your audience.
For your blog or website, you’re almost certainly going to convey different emotions across your content. Some posts will be informative, and some likely more colloquial so it’s important for your visuals to represent this. If you read an article with a Doctor’s statistics on an issue, it would have much more integrity with serious and informative visuals, over pink and swirly text! This is why it’s so important that your typography lines up with the style of your content and the audience demographic you’re aiming for.
In this post, I have included 5 great plugins for your WordPress site that will enable you to add custom fonts into your article and give them the spruce that they need!
Top 5 Plugins To Add Custom Fonts On WordPress
Use Any Font
Use Any Font has proven to be a popular plugin for custom fonts on WordPress – this may be due to the fact that it is so easy to set up and requires no coding/CSS knowledge. Multiple fonts can be used and all major browsers support this.
In the description of this plugin, there is also a video demonstration showing you the installation process which would be really helpful if you’re not very experienced with plugins on your site.
Fontsy.com is an increasingly popular WordPress plugin for custom fonts. What stands out about this plugin over the others is that not only are you able to upload your own fonts from external sources, but they have a huge range of fonts available in their own library for you to choose from.
There are many beautiful fonts that are completely free, and some premium fonts that you can pay for – making this WordPress font plugin perfect for any budget. This plugin makes it so easy to get some gorgeous fonts on your own site with no coding required which is a bonus!
This plugin is a little different to the rest as it’s mainly aimed at Persian fonts, with over 160 different designs. This plugin mentions that you can also edit the line height, along with the word and letter spacing. This is a great USP – you don’t often see that you can edit these as easily as just installing a plugin so that’s a really great added feature.
This plugin provides options to change not only the font but the size of the text too. This is a free download for the basic plugin but you can pay extra for premium fonts and unlock the ability to upload your own.
This plugin has received many great reviews for how user friendly it is – there is a live chat available if you have any problems. However, other plugins I have mentioned do have more free options so this may be a great choice if you have a bit more budget to play with.

This plugin allows you to override the default font settings on WordPress and change them to a choice of Google fonts. It has many good customer reviews for being user friendly with quick installation. The top 30 Google fonts are grouped together at the top of the list to make the process more efficient.
