Print in Century Gothic Font to Save Ink

Toners can cost us quite a bit of cash and tend not to play very nice with the environment, so anything that'll reduce our ink usage is always welcome in our book. So, when a professor at the University of Wisconsin found out that using Century Gothic would use up 30% less ink, we just had to share it with our readers...

According to their studies, the common computer font Century Gothic will use up to 30% less ink in printing than if Arial was used. While it may seem like a small number at first, we're pretty sure thousands of dollars in toners can be saved over a longer period of time.

We've spoken with some typographers in the past, and they said the same savings can be found if users used similarly "eco-friendly" fonts such as Times New Roman and Calibri - fonts that should be stuck to if you're already using them by default.
