Using system fonts in Cricut Design Space

System fonts are fonts that are installed on your computer or mobile device. Cricut Design Space automatically accesses your system fonts each time you sign in, and allows you to use them in Design Space projects for free.

 

When downloading fonts to your computer or device, follow the instructions on the font site or app to ensure that the font is successfully installed on your computer or device. Because system fonts are installed on a particular device, the available system fonts may vary between devices.

Because system fonts are not designed by Cricut, some of them may have design components that are not compatible with Cricut Design Space. This may result in a failure to import into Design Space, or unusual behavior when used in Design Space.
