Downloading and Installation
 

How to download

After you place an order with Font Bros, you will be presented with a page that contains download links for all fonts ordered. Simply click once on each link and the font download will begin immediately. Depending on how your browser is configured, you may be asked if you want to save the file or open it with an application. We recommend that you choose to save it and make note of the download location for later installation. If you don’t recall or cannot locate where each file was saved to, it is likely in your ‘downloads’ folder which is commonly located on your desktop.

In addition, you will also receive an order confirmation email which contains links to where you may re-download the font files if you didn’t download them at the time of purchase. If you have ordered multiple products, there will be one link per product, as each must be downloaded separately.

Lastly, at any time after your purchase you wish to download the font files again, you can easily do this by logging into your user account and re-downloading any previous order or individual font.

 

How to install For Mac OS X

  1. Locate the file that was downloaded. It will be a compressed file with .zip at the end of the file name that must be expanded before it can be installed. Simply double click the .zip file and the operating system will uncompress it automatically.
  2. Open the new folder that was created by the expansion process. You will see several files and folders, depending on the font you purchased (you will find PDFs of our license agreement, a general-information read me file, and font-specific manuals if your purchase includes them). Locate the folder named ‘Open Type’ and open it. Enclosed are the font files that are to be installed.
  3. Double-click the OS X hard drive icon.
  4. Open the Library folder.
  5. Open the Fonts folder.
  6. Drag the font files into the Fonts folder.
  7. That’s it!

Note: you may need to quit and restart any open applications to see the fonts in their font menu
