CSS Question

use custom fonts with wkhtmltopdf

I am trying to use custom fonts in my PDF generated with wkhtmltopdf.
I read that you can't use google webfonts and that wkhtmltopdf uses truetype .ttf file. Can anyone confirm that?
So I downloaded a .ttf file from google webfont and put in on my server, then used the font face:

@font-face {
font-family: Jolly;
src: url('../fonts/JollyLodger-Regular.ttf') format('truetype');

and font family:

<style type = "text/css">
p { font-family: 'Jolly', cursive; }

And now the text that is supposed to render with Jolly Lodger font doesn't appear at all, page is blank.

What am I doing wrong?

PS: I tried with different .ttf files.

Answer Source

Since it is a Google Web font you need not to write @font-face in you style sheet just use following link tag in your source code:

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>


 <style type = "text/css">
    p { font-family: 'Jolly Lodger', cursive; }

will work.

By the way, in your code you are defining @font-face family as font-family: Jolly; and using it as p { font-family: 'Jolly Lodger', cursive; } that is wrong, because it's mismatching font-family name.
