Good afternoon,
We have company fonts that we would like to push via Group Policy.
Files are *.OTF format.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Some ideas:

Deploy fonts via network share, example 1

Installing Fonts with Group Policy and MSIs, Example 2

Shouldn't matter if the fonts are OTF or TTF format.

Since you refer to "company fonts", this is probably not relevant, but you have to take into account that fonts (like other 'software') may be subject to restrictive licence terms, and cannot necessarily be (legally) copied between workstations.

When is that ever enforced @DansDadUK ? A lot of ad agencies, government agencies, and companies have style standards for web and corporate documents. The generally misunderstood assumption about font licensing is that if you have the application (e.g., Office 365, Microsoft Office) and enterprise seat licensing, you also have the rights to distribute the fonts over a group policy.

Another way to help promote internal usage of company fonts is to publish default templates (e.g., normal.dot for Word, XLT for Excel) with the standardized fonts in use.
