We usually use Google Fonts with Vanilla CSS, but can you use them with Tailwind CSS as well? You certainly can. I’ll show you how to use custom Google Fonts with Tailwind CSS in this article.

Visit Google Fonts and choose your favorite font,

Font screenshot Import font into your CSS file,

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Amatic+SC:wght@400;700&display=swap');
@tailwind base;
@tailwind components;
@tailwind utilities;

This is the default code in tailwind.config.js,

module.exports = {
  content: [
  theme: {
    extend: {},
  plugins: [],

Now inside, theme object we will add fonts

theme: {
    extend: {
      fontFamily: {
        amatica: ["Amatic SC", "cursive"],
        inter: ["Inter", "sans-serif"]

Now, fonts are added and you can use it now as a class.

<h1 class="font-amatica">Hello World</h1>
<h2 class="font-inter">Hello World</h2>
