How do i add custom fonts on my website if I do not use google fonts?

I cannot find the link to put the code into my index.html

Hello Jay, there are some websites that give you the css code that import the font right to your website. But first you need to link this css file to your html file. Check this website and pick a font you like. http://www.fontsquirrel.com/

And then in the font information it has to say webfontkit and you need to download the file.

Let me know if you have any question. Maybe I could give you a hand.
