All too often, offices eat up waaay too much paper and ink, and many of these inevitably end up in the recycling tray, the other side waiting to be printed on. Any other means of saving on resources is always welcome.
Well, here's a very simple way of saving up on ink. Ecofont! Ecofont is based on the sans serif Verdana (incidentally, Verdana is one of my favorite fonts for the web and for print). Using Ecofont will enable you to save up to 20% on ink! And how is it possible? Easy. The letters are dotted with holes. For a font size 9 or 10 (the most popular size for regular correspondences), Ecofont looks just like a regular font (with the holes not apparent), so no worries about displays. And by simply installing this free font and using it for print will help you save effortlessly!
Aside from the free version, there is also a professional offering which enables companies to use the ecofont technology in their own corporate typeface. However, this service is currently available only in the Netherlands.
Why not give Ecofont a whirl? Free download at the site.
