Custom font displays incorrectly on mobile (bold font issue)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I use a custom font on my website and for some reason it displays differently on a mobile device.
On a desktop browser the font displays perfectly - but when viewed on a mobile device it appears as though it is in 'bold' or overlayed a version of itself - see attached files to see the issue.

Can anyone suggest why this might happen and how I can fix it?

Thanks 🙂

You try checking on both Android & iOS.

Some fonts, only work on Android and not on iOS, and will often need to contact the font author.
And sometimes, if you declare other font format, it can work.

I have exactly the same issue on my website and cannot find a solution...

I tried .woff too but it didn't make any difference.

It almost looks like the text is overlaid but offset a little horizontally so the font looks bolder than what it is on mobile. Full stops look like ellipses rather than circles. 

Any ideas how to fix it?
