You can put it into a folder in your project, and load it from there. Then you can load it just like loading a system font.

thanks man
was very easy

String fName = "/fonts/" + name;
    try {
      InputStream is = DemoFonts.class.getResourceAsStream(fName);
      font = Font.createFont(Font.TRUETYPE_FONT, is);
    } catch (Exception ex) {
      ex.printStackTrace();
      System.err.println(fName + " not loaded.  Using serif font.");
      font = new Font("serif", Font.PLAIN, 24);
    }
    return font;

Yeah, well, it has been made into a sort of font-loading class. But you seem to have understood how it works Smiley
