Detailed Installation Instuctions:

All font files that you download from this site (and other font sites) will be contained in an archive (.zip) file. An archive file, also known as a ZIP file, has the ability to store and compress multiple files of different types.

The use of an archive file is necessary because font designers often require that a separate ReadMe text file be sent along with the font file. ReadMe files often contain the font designers terms of use for the font and/or installation instructions.

If you have Windows XP, Win 7, 8 or greater, a utility for extracting or unzipping the font files from the archive file is part of the operating system.

Installation Win XP:
  1. To EXTRACT the font file from the .ZIP file, go to START / All Programs / Accessories / Windows Explorer.
    Use the left window pane of Windows Explorer to navigate to the folder where you downloaded the file. Click the PLUS signs next to folders to expose hidden folders, click the folder image or the folder name to view the folder's contents in the right window pane of Explorer.
  2. Once you have located the .zip file(s) you downloaded from our web site, RIGHT CLICK the file and select "Open with > Compressed (zipped) Folders" from the menu
  3. You may be asked to specify where to store the extracted files. You can extract the files into a new folder or the same folder.
  4. After extraction you should have access to at least one new file - a file that ends with .ttf. This is the font file.
  5. To INSTALL the font click the start button and select Control Panel. In the right pane of control panel select Appearance and Themes. On the appearance and themes page, click Fonts from the upper left pane.
  6. When the list of fonts is showing, select File / Install New Font. Browse to the folder where you extracted the font file and install it.
