Font files come in different formats.
Select .OTF file if you’d like to use the fonts on your computer in other programs, such as Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. Canva also accepts .OTF files if you want to add them to your brand kit.
Select .WOFF/.WOFF2 if you want to use the fonts on your website. Modern browsers will only need WOFF2 but we will give you both file types to ensure compatibility with older browsers, e.g. older Internet Explorer or Safari versions.
.OTF versus .WOFF/.WOFF2: WOFF formats are a compressed version of .OTF files so that the fonts load faster on websites. WOFF2 is an evolution of WOFF and is ~30% more compressed.
Other font file formats are TTF, EOT, and SVG. These formats are not needed or supported anymore. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
After your purchase, you’ll get a link to your font file/s.
