OpenType-SVG fonts - or color fonts - are the newest technology in type! With color fonts, type isn't just multi-color: Color fonts can make your type take on artistic textures, or add spirit and depth. You can read more about color fonts on our blog, and you can check out some of our color fonts here!
Keep in mind that color fonts still have limited software support. Color fonts are most commonly used in Adobe design software, but only certain versions will support and allow you to use them:
|Software||Earliest Version to Support Color Fonts|
|Adobe Photoshop||18.0 (CC 2017)|
|Adobe Illustrator||22.0.0 (CC 2018)|
|Adobe InDesign||13.0.1 (CC 2019)|
You can see a complete list of software that supports color fonts here.
If you have this supported software, after unzipping the file, just install your color font as you would a normal font. Please note that due to the high level of detail color fonts offer, they'll be larger than normal fonts and use more of your system memory.
Can I install and use OpenType-SVG / color fonts on my computer if I don't have the latest software?
If you don't have software that supports color fonts installed on your computer, unfortunately you will not be able to use OpenType-SVG fonts. However, many of our color font products also offer normal OpenType or TrueType versions of the color font that you can use in any software that supports type, so be sure to check the description in the product listing!
