Saving money with the right font

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

How often do you hit "Print" when reading an email or a web site? Believe it or not you can save money on your ink/toner and paper costs by changing the font. An article on MSN-CNET pointed out a study conducted by and how some fonts use less ink/toner than others.

Of course there are a lot of other factors that should be considered, such as the readability of the font, its size, and its width (how economical it is space-wise).

It seems the font Century Gothic received top honors because of its minimum use of ink/toner. Other fonts like Times New Roman and Calibri are at the top of the list.
