Strange problem installing a custom font.

Recommended Posts

Hello good people,

I have uploaded a custom font, following all the proper CSS protocol. The custom font is similar in name to an existing font in the Squarespace library. 

My CSS change did change the font in question, but it changed it to the similar font in the Squarespace library, not to the font I uploaded. It's driving me nuts trying to sort it out.

My font: Lust Pro Demi (a purchased OTF file, uploaded with the woff and woff2 files)

The Squarespace font it keeps defaulting to: Lust text

The fonts are similar looking, but the subtle differences are quite important to my client's brand, and if I don't sort this out we may have to ditch Squarespace. Anyone else run into this? How did you work around it?

I've attached my code in case that's the issue. Thanks so much to whoever can respond.
