Google Fonts can be added to your store’s font library in a few simple steps.

Step 3: Paste Code into Theme Files

Access your Shopify theme’s code editor and strategically paste the code into the <head> section of your theme.liquid file.

Align with CSS: In your theme’s style files (in the “Assets” folder), apply the corresponding CSS rule to ensure consistent font usage throughout your store.
