Sure, PicMonkey’s got a jillion fonts for your designs, but you’ve probably got a few beauties of your own you’d like to use, too. Who’s gonna limit you? Not us! If you’re a Pro subscriber, you can upload any font you’ve got on your computer for use in PicMonkey.

Why you might want to upload your own fonts

Using your own fonts in PicMonkey is key for social media marketers, bloggers, and small business owners who use specific fonts they’ve purchased (or downloaded for free) to maintain a unified brand look. It’s also great for designers and photo enthusiasts whose creativity demands the font faucet on full blast. And, bonus—when you upload a font to PicMonkey, it goes where you go. It’s there for you any time you log into PicMonkey, no matter what computer you’re using.

Use your own fonts in PicMonkey

Uploading your fonts to PicMonkey takes just a few clicks.

  1. Click the Text tab in the tall blue bar on the left.
  2. Click the Add text button at the top of the screen—the Text palette will appear on the side of your image.
  3. Scroll to the very bottom of the font list and click the Upload your fonts  button.
  4. Follow the instructions that appear in the panel for finding where the font is stored on your computer. PicMonkey detects your operating system, so the instructions will be customized for Mac or PC. You’ll also be shown how to copy the font file to your desktop and open it in PicMonkey.

Once you’ve done that,  you’ll see it in the font drop-down list, under “Your Fonts.” Any time you log in to PicMonkey, on any computer, your unique font will be available.


The possibilities are endless when you get a PicMonkey membership.
