December 7, 2023

Aside from built-in fonts, Jotform also supports CSS at-rules like @import and @font-face. You can use these to apply custom fonts, from Google Fonts or your server, to your forms.

Getting Your Google Fonts Import Code

To generate your Google Fonts CSS import code

  1. Open Google Fonts and search for a font.
  2. Choose a font from the results.
Steps to search and select a font in Google Fonts

The @import rule must be declared before any other rules. Make sure to paste the import code on top of all the existing CSS codes you may have.

  1. Next, paste the following code right after the import rule:
* {
font-family: 'MyWebFont', sans-serif;
  1. Replace the font-family declaration with the one from Google Fonts under the CSS rules to specify families.

The complete code would look something like the following:

@import url('');
* {
font-family: 'Charm', cursive;
  1. View your form in Preview or Live mode to see the changes.

Using Custom Fonts Hosted From Your Server

The @font-face CSS at-rule allows you to load your fonts from your server and apply them to your forms.


Your server needs to support HTTPS and Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). Visit Enable CORS to learn more.

To use fonts from your server

  1. Upload your font files to your server via FTP or cPanel.
  2. Copy the following CSS code:
@font-face {
font-family: 'MyAwesomeWebFont';
src: url('') format('woff'),
url('') format('truetype');
* {
font-family: 'MyAwesomeWebFont', sans-serif;
  1. Inject the code into your form.
  2. Replace the src values in the code with your font’s URL and format.

For the CSS code, you can use any font-face generator tool available online for browser compatibility.
