How do I install fonts on a Mac?

1- Go to your preferred font store to find the font you would like to install. I am using Fontbundles.net

2- Find the font you want to install. You can find FontBundle’s newest Free Font of the Week here .

3- Click on the download icon.

4- Your font will download as a zip file.

2- Find the location of your downloaded zip file - check the Downloads Folder in your Finder, or download bar in your browser:

3- Double click on the zip file. The file will automatically decompress by the archive utility into the same folder the compressed file was in.

4- Open FontBook application (found in Launchpad).

5- Drag and drop OTF font file into the font list in FontBook (middle column):

6- Your font is now installed onto your MAC. You may need to restart any programs that were open during the installation to ensure it is properly installed.
