Hello, how can we help?

Should I install OTF or TTF?

All of the fonts on Font Bundles come with OTF and TTF, and I bet at some point you’ve wondered - what is the difference?!


OTF (Open Type Font)


OTF is a newer version of font files, and it allows for more extra characters and glyphs to be included in one font file. Those fancy swashes, extra characters, and automatic ligatures are easily accessible in OTF fonts. We recommend installing the OTF font file.


TTF (True Type Font)


TTF is an older format of font and is still around because OTFs aren’t fully supported by all software yet (90% of all commonly used software does now support OTFs, but there are some exceptions). It doesn’t include many of the advanced features that OTFs do, like automatic ligatures.


Did you know? All of our fonts at Font Bundles come PUA ended. PUA Encoded fonts effectively take all of the fancy glyphs which aren’t available to users of most software, and place them into the ‘Private Use Area’ which is fully available to use by anyone, using the Character Map (PC) or Font Book (Mac).
