Fonts That Save Ink

If your computer printer seems too thirsty—and whose doesn’t?—you may want to consider changing the font setting to cut ink consumption.

Ecofont, a Dutch company, has developed a set of fonts that uses 15 percent less ink by essentially leaving small holes in printed letters. The Ecofont website gives you the opportunity to download an ink-saving font.

Ecofont ink-sparing fonts include Times New Roman, Calibri and Franklin Gothic Medium.
