Build Custom Fonts

Using the IcoMoon App, you can build your own custom fonts that only contain the icons that you need.

Pixel Perfect Results

Unlike similar services, the IcoMoon app takes grid sizes of icons into account and generates crisp, pixel perfect results. With a proper alignment, the font size you set would directly translate to the size of the icons.

Free Icons, Free App

The IcoMoon app is free. You don’t need to pay anything or give back any credit for using it. IcoMoon’s Library features many high quality icon sets. All of these icons are designed on a grid and they are optimized to be used with the IcoMoon app. Add any set you wish to easily browse and search its icons.

Awesome Iconography Tool

The IcoMoon app is an advanced iconography tool. It lets you sort your icons, manage your icon collections, or make your icons searchable by adding tags to them. In addition to fonts, you can generate PNGs, SVGs and CSS sprites in any size and color you wish.

Import Your Own Vectors

In the IcoMoon app, you can import your own vectors (SVG images or SVG fonts). Importing icons happens locally, in your browser. Your vectors won’t get uploaded to our servers when you import them. Some basic editing options such as moving, mirroring and rotating are available too.

Works Offline

Once loaded in your browser, the IcoMoon app works offline. When you import an icon or generate a font, everything happens locally, in your own browser. Your icons/fonts won’t be uploaded to our servers. You can even load the IcoMoon app when you have no connection if you install it from the Chrome Web Store.

Multiple Ligatures Per Glyph

Instead of assigning single characters to your glyphs, you could assign different tags to them (ligatures). This feature is especially useful for fallbacks or desktop usage of the fonts. Learn More…
