With PromoRepublic it is possible to pre-set your brand’s fonts and colors for a unified look across all designs.

Set up your Brand Styles to keep designs on-brand across your organization or clients.

Open Graphics Editor and on the left side, you'll find the Styles tab.

Who will have access to the Styles tab?

  • For agencies: Location owners, administrators, and members can set up and edit the Styles. Users will the client role can't do this because they don't have access to the Graphics Editor at all.

  • For enterprises: Only location owners can set up and edit Styles for the organization. If necessary, owners have the ability to allow location administrators and members to set up and edit styles for their workspaces.

  • Location admins and members can edit and delete only their own styles.

  • Clients can use anything you set up in the Styles to create designs inside the Editor, but they cannot create or manage existing Styles.

Each Style includes the following elements

  • Style name and style assignment (whole organization or specific location)

  7. Wait for the upload to finish. Save the Style with the font to use while creating new templates.

Uploaded fonts will appear at the top of the list when adding text.

Fonts requirements

Make sure that the font is licensed for embedding. If it's not, the upload may fail. If you’re unsure, check its licensing information, or contact the font provider/seller.

The following font formats are supported:

  • Open Type Font (.otf )

  • True Type Font (.ttf)

There are limitations on uploading and rendering non-latin and non-cyrillic fonts.

Font upload error

There can be several possible reasons why your font doesn’t upload or has errors when used. Here’s what you can do for each:

  • Unsupported format: Make sure your font is in OTF or TTF format.

  • Licensing issue: The font should be licensed for embedding. Ask the font provider if you’re unsure or need to get the correct license or file version.

  • Corrupted file: The file is unreadable. Find a new copy of the font and upload that instead.

  • Font not compatible with PromoRepublic: Sometimes, a font may successfully upload but will have errors when used in a design. Errors might show as missing letters; squares are shown instead of letters, or the font looks different when downloaded. To fix this, find a different font to upload.
