You can choose from several fonts for the text in your online store. However, if you use a font that does not yet exist on your customer's computer, then the font has to be downloaded before your text can be displayed. This impacts the time that your store takes to load.
To avoid downloading a new font to your customer's computer, you can use a system font. A system font is a font that is already installed on most computers.
You can select a mono, serif, or sans-serif font family. You can still use font styles, such as bold or italic, when you use any of these font families.
The font on your customer's computer depends on their operating system. Below are some examples of the fonts that might be used to render text when you select a system font family:
- Mono: Menlo, Consolas, Monaco, Liberation Mono, or Lucida Console
- Sans-serif: BlinkMacSystemFont, Segoe UI, Roboto, Ubuntu, or Helvetica Neue
- Serif: Iowan Old Style, Apple Garamond, Baskerville, Times New Roman, Droid Serif, Times, or Source Serif Pro
