How to Change Fonts on Notion

Changing fonts in Notion can significantly impact the aesthetic appeal and readability of your pages, whether you're crafting a website, portfolio, or simply enhancing the look of your documents. Notion provides a limited selection of font styles by default, but there are ways to customize and go beyond these options for both your Notion pages and websites created with Notion.

Changing Default Fonts in Notion

Notion offers three built-in font styles: Default, Serif, and Mono. To change fonts within Notion:

  1. Open your Notion page and click on the “...” icon at the top-right corner of your screen.
  2. Select ‘Default’, ‘Serif’, or ‘Mono’ from the dropdown menu.

This will change the font style for all text on your page. However, Notion does not allow changing to a font outside of these three options directly within the app.

Changing Font Size in Notion

To adjust the font size in Notion:

  1. Click on the “...” icon at the top-right corner of your page.
  2. Toggle ‘Small Text’ on or off to decrease or maintain the default text size, respectively.

For increasing text size, select the text and change its block type to a larger header tag. This is the only method to make text appear larger in Notion.

Customizing Fonts for Notion Websites

For those looking to customize the fonts on their Notion-based websites or portfolios, platforms like Super and Simple.ink offer solutions. These services allow you to apply a wider range of font styles and sizes to your Notion pages once they are published as websites.

With Super, even the free version grants access to 65 different font styles, and Simple.ink provides an easy way to add custom fonts to your Notion website through its site customization options. These platforms enhance the design elements of your pages, including background colors, navigation bars, footers, and more, offering a comprehensive solution for branding and aesthetics.

Alternative Methods for Custom Fonts

Beyond the default settings, there are creative ways to introduce custom fonts into your Notion pages:

  • Fancy Text Platforms: Use online tools like Fancy Text Generator or Cool Symbol to generate text in various fonts, which can then be copied and pasted into Notion.
  • Equations: Utilize Notion's equation block with LaTeX commands to customize the appearance of text, including color, bold, and italic styles.
  • Simple.ink Feature: For Notion websites, Simple.ink allows you to select from a vast array of fonts available on the internet through its dashboard, offering unparalleled customization for your site's typography.

While Notion's in-app font options are limited, these methods provide flexibility and creativity in designing your Notion pages and websites, ensuring your content stands out and aligns with your brand's aesthetic.
