It would be really nice if you could be able to use your own fonts!

    Thank you for sending over your suggestions - and an even bigger thanks for your patience! We've just released Google Fonts for Pro users. You'll be able to search through over 100's of fonts and apply them to your site. 

    Please check out our guide here and let us know if you have any feedback or questions!

    Many more templates....the ability to upload our own fonts...and that's just for starters. I am now finding myself constrained by you as a creative. That's not good.

    I also have my own fonts I would like to use, can we upload them and have them integrate?

    We want to be able to use our own fonts - especially for headlines/titles - we have a very strong brand identity which we're unable to use currently de to the font restriction. Is anyone aware of a way round this?

    Come on guys, each company has their own custom font, if they want a website from Strikingly this feature should be without question.

    Back again to comment 3 months later. Same question.

    Where is the ability to load a brand's specific font package, or a brand's unique identity package as a whole? Hex color matches for instance. You're already offering an interface in HTML5/CSS3 - why is difficult to now let the user input their hex color codes, any font, etc.

    I'm continually restricted by the tools here, and you have competitors offering stock video already. You're consistently behind other product offerings, and so I'll be the one to say, "I'm not happy." As a customer, as a creative, don't fence me in. 

    Whoever added the "build your own section" option - that's the mindset. No doubt it's not perfect, but I'd rather you offer a way for me to continuously be different, so what if you fail and roll out another version. You've built a tool that is confining.

    For those customers who've been loyal, and utilize your service within the scope of their own day to day offerings...especially with small businesses of all people. Not good. 

    You know what I want? Freedom.

    Fonts? What about some more freedom around using/placing logos?

    I've loved the ease of Strikingly. There is so much that is great about this platform, but not being able to upload my own font is becoming a make it or break it issue. I'm looking at squarespace now for this very reason. Please let me know if you all are working on this as a possibility. I really want to stay with Strikingly, but as I prepare for a big launch and am creating LOTS of content, I have to be able to maintain brand consistency.

    Thanks!

    I agree with Stephanie on here.  I am new to all of this but I have 3 days to decide weather or not I want to keep my Pro subscription or not.  Any feedback about using my own font would be much appreciated.

    Otherwise, I have gotten some very positive feedback on what I have put together thus far and it has been "Strikingly" easy for me to build my website (especially for a newbie like me).

    Thank you.

    I'd love to be able to use my own fonts : that would be more consistent with my logo, my tagline and all my visual identity !

    Hi Strikingly,

    I noticed that you had a 'Happiness Officer' comment on this around a year ago (4 Dec 2015) stating that you were reviewing this feature.

    Any news on this update? 

    It seems I am not the only one interested. 

    I have used other online services that have fonts available which you do not (in this case Channel). Most other online tools also allow users to use 'ours' or 'yours' for fonts, another feature not available on Strikingly. I am not a creative by trade and even as an amateur user would like these services available through your site. 

    Cheers

    I'm with Hannah. I requested my own font to be uploaded. It was able to be hardcoded into the webpage but I'm unable to choose it as a dropdown which means that prior to publishing I'm going to have to work with a developer at strikingly to ensure my font is integrated correctly.

    Would rather be able to do this myself.

    No progress on this issue?  It's a potential show stopper for us using the site...

    I share this request. We have hired a brand designer to develop our own font. It would be a pitty should we not be able to apply this font to our own website. Happiness officer? Make your customers happy!

    agree, would like to be able to use own fonts - not just google ones.

    Agree that it's a big drawback to not have all fonts available. Companies have certain brand fonts that they like to adhere to, mine included. 

    This is a big area for a big fix and big delight when it's implemented :) 

    Please please please.

    I second that.  I've developed a brand that relies on a particular font (on all published material) - its free and easily available but not available on Strikingly, so I'll have to cancel my trial
