How to Add Custom Fonts to WordPress

Using custom fonts will help you expand the list of available fonts and use the ones that match your needs and brand. Fortunately, this functionality can be achieved easily in WordPress with the help of a plugin. 

Even though this is easily achievable, you should be aware that you should keep the list of fonts used on your website to a maximum of three, preferably two.
