Update Heading Font on Dawn Theme to Custom Font

Hello! I am trying to update all of the Headings on my website to Elika Gorica. I am using the Dawn Theme and I have tried some of the other solutions out there and it hasn't worked. I have added the woff and woff2 font files to the Assets. I have also added the code to the theme.liquid file for the fonts. 


When editing base.css, I can't seem to get the headings to change. I was able to update the header font for the navigation to this custom font, even though that's not where I want it, but I can't get the headings to show up as the custom font.

Hi @leaskirt Please follow the steps.


  • Upload your font files: Upload your custom font files (e.g., .woff, .woff2) to your Shopify theme. You can do this by navigating to the "Online Store" section of your Shopify admin panel, selecting "Themes," and then clicking on "Actions" > "Edit code" for your current theme. In the theme editor, you can upload your font files to the "Assets" folder.
  • Add font-face rule in CSS: Once your font files are uploaded, you need to define a @font-face rule in your CSS to specify the font-family and the paths to your font files. You can add this rule to your theme's CSS file. Here's an example:

@font-face {
    font-family: 'CustomFont';
    src: url('{{ 'customfont.woff2' | asset_url }}') format('woff2'), /* Modern Browsers */
         url('{{ 'customfont.woff' | asset_url }}') format('woff'); /* Older Browsers */
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;

Replace 'CustomFont' with the desired name for your custom font and 'customfont.woff2' and 'customfont.woff' with the file names of your font files.

  • Apply the font to your styles: Once the font-face rule is defined, you can use the custom font by specifying font-family in your CSS styles. For example:
body {
    font-family: 'CustomFont', sans-serif;

Replace 'CustomFont' with the name you used in the @font-face rule.

  • Apply the font in your Shopify theme templates: Once you've added the font to your CSS, you can apply it to specific elements in your Shopify theme templates by adding custom CSS classes or modifying existing styles.

If you will unable to implement the same then I'm happy to do this for you, let me know. I can implement the code changes so that this will work well for you.
