Custom Fonts is a capability that's part of Brand Kit, a premier feature available to customers who have subscribed to one of the plans here - https://typito.com/pricing. It lets you upload 5 of your fonts to create text videos on Typito. Custom Fonts feature supports 3 font formats - ttf, otf and woff.
Please note: Custom Fonts is a paid feature. You will be able to edit videos with custom fonts for free, but you‘ll need to subscribe to one of the plans to export and download such videos.
If you haven't subscribed to a plan, you will find the Brand Kit view under Team Settings look like this:

Part 1 - How to procure your font (using Google Fonts)
Let's assume that you want to upload a brand font using the Custom Font capability. For convenience, let's assume the font you want is a Greek font that's compliant with your brand. So you go to https://fonts.google.com and use the language filter at the right side and choose Greek:
One you've chosen Greek, Google Fonts shows you the list of fonts that support Greek language. Of the list of fonts, you choose Fira Sans (which is our brand font by the way! :-)). You can choose a font by clicking on the red (+) icon next to the title of the font in the list:
You can also try out the different styles available in a given font (eg. Regular, Bold etc) in this view. Once you've chosen the font, it will show a tab that says the font family is selected. On clicking it, opens up with this view:
This section is going to be important. Remember, you are here to add Fira Sans Regular font that can be used to type Greek language on Typito.
So you have to go to "CUSTOMIZE" tab and choose the right font style and language support:
You've now selected Fira Sans Regular (400) font that supports Greek, Greek Extended and Latin characters. Now you can go ahead and download the font by clicking the download icon at the top bottom of the tab:
Congrats! You now have a zip file that would have the font file "FiraSans-Regular.ttf". Next, let's learn how to add the font in Typito!
Part 2 - How to add your custom font on Typito
First thing to do is go to Brand Kit view in Settings section and click on "Upload Font":
On clicking that, a popup appears requesting you to upload the font file. Go ahead and upload the ttf file that you downloaded. It would show you a view like this:
Here, you need to ensure that the Language is selected as Greek. You can also change the Label to be like "Fira Sans Regular Greek" so that you know the font supports Greek when you spot in with the other fonts while editing a video. The changes would be:
Once that's done, click Upload and your font would get uploaded to your Typito Brand Kit! It would show up with your other custom fonts:
Part 3 - You can also upload font while editing the video by going to the text edit panel
You can test this font by opening a project on Typito and adding a few Greek words using the new font that you uploaded:
If you have already subscribed to any of the paid plans, you can export the video with 1-click.
If you are trying out Typito for free you will get a prompt to upgrade to a paid plan:
