Zakeke comes with a list of pre-loaded fonts, but you can upload your own fonts as well.
Pre-loaded fonts can't be deleted but you can disable them by creating a Printing Method.
Zakeke supports the right-to-left and Asian languages. Some of the pre-loaded fonts support those languages. Read more here.
Uploading your own fonts
Before you start
We recommend you change the name of your font using a unique name. This must be done from the font metadata, not just renaming the font file. You can do it by reading this guide: Fonts Error Messages
How to add your own fonts
In your Zakeke back-office, go to the Fonts > Add New Fonts
- TTF (TrueType)
- OTF (OpenType)
You can upload all fonts at once in a ZIP package.
Please note that the installation of new fonts may require a few minutes. After uploading the files, you will be taken to the "Fonts" page in the "in processing" section where you can check the status of the installation. Possible statutes are as follows:
Waiting - Your fonts have not yet been processed.
Processing - Fonts are being processed and will be installed.
Error - One or more fonts have not been processed. Hover over the element to read the last error.
Completed - Fonts have been successfully processed.
WARNING: When a font load is in the
Completed state, it may take a few seconds for the font to be fully usable, if you have an error message you can see how to solve it via this guide: Fonts Error Messages
How to make the new fonts available to your customers
Once fonts have been installed, they can be used in a Printing Method.
However, you may want to limit the available fonts for a specific printing method. If so, do as follows:
Go to Tools > Printing Methods.
Choose or add a Printing Method.
In the section Fonts, you can select one or more fonts to associate with the printing method and the default font (it will be the default font when the customizer initializes).
If you check All Fonts, it will associate all fonts available in your Fonts section to the printing method.
We advise you to place a test order using your font to make sure there are no errors in the output files.
