Save some ink

By , Saturday, 10th April, 2010

Want to save some ink??? The other day I was reading about a University which had changed their default font in documents to save on the amount of ink being used. It turns out, Century Gothic and Times New Roman top the list for being ink-friendly. But be careful – just because you change to Century Gothic – it might not be all good, as Century Gothic is a “wider” font so takes up more space on the page. So though you might save on ink, you might not save on paper.

Coincidentally, just before I read the article referred to above, I came across EcoFont a few days before – a font which has holes in it to use less ink (they claim it will save up to 25% of ink or toner).
