Font style selections in Constant Contact products

When you customize the font style in Constant Contact products, you can choose from a variety of web-safe and non-standard fonts. We recommend using web-safe fonts because they have the highest likelihood of rendering properly on readers' computers.

Some non-standard fonts may not be on your readers' computers and, therefore, may cause display issues. If a reader's computer can't display your chosen font, the back-up font available will display instead. 

Font selection menus only list fonts that are on your computer. If you can't find a font you selected in the past, it is probably not installed on your computer.

Web-Safe Fonts

To increase the chance that readers will see your chosen font, use one of the following web-safe fonts: 
  • Arial
  • Comic Sans MS
  • Courier New  
  • Georgia
  • Lucida Sans Unicode
  • Tahoma
  • Times New Roman
  • Trebuchet MS
  • Verdana
In most font selection menus, web-safe fonts are those listed above the word "Other". See screenshot below.

Other Fonts

If you customize your text with a font style that isn't web-safe, some computers may not be able to display your chosen font. If this happens, your text will appear in a designated back-up font.

Example: If you choose a Palatino font, computers that don't have Palatino font installed may display Arial font instead.

Don’t see the font you want to use? If you know code, add a new font manually through Code View or the Style Sheet. However, the text editor's font selection menu will not update to list the new font.

Recognize Web-Safe Fonts in the Menu

Most text editors make it easy to tell which font options are web-safe. Web-safe fonts appear above the word “Other” in the list.
