I had a tough time figuring out how to use custom fonts with WordPress, so I figured I would provide some (hopefully clear) instructions on how to do it. It started to get really long, so I put everything together over on a static page and created a new How To’s section of the site. You can check it out here.
As an example of what you can do with this, I will demonstrate the fonts that I used to create my header image.
Deftone Stylus is the main font, and has a cool, retro, 500 pound lead-lined refrigerator feel to it. The only problem is the uppercase “L“. it’s pretty ugly. I found a font called Brody with a great “L“, but the slant was all wrong. Lucky for me, when italicised, the slant lines up perfectly with the regular Deftone Stylus.
A little paint.net magic to squish them together, and my header was born.
