Most applications (such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) include fonts that are automatically installed when you install the software. However, sometimes you may want to install custom fonts that you’ve created, purchased, or downloaded from somewhere else, such as the fonts included with our templates. In some templates, we use some “non-standard” fonts but are free for design reasons. These fonts allow us to design a visually more appealing Resume. We do this so that your resume stands out from the crowd.

Sharing files that contain non-standard fonts

When you install a custom font, each font will work only with the computer you’ve installed it on. Custom fonts that you’ve installed on your computer might not display the same way on a different computer. Text that is formatted in a font that is not installed on a computer will display in Times New Roman or the default font.

Therefore, if you plan to share your Microsoft Office Word Resume, we suggest embedding fonts on your files.
