    Save Toner/Ink By Using Specific Fonts

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this post but this one is the best one I could think of at the moment.

    Link: Save printer ink by using Garamond typeface font

    I found it interesting and wondered what others here thought/Is there any truth in it/Have there been other [more thorough] studies?

    Thanks.

    Well the good thing is that MS Word usually defaults to Times New Roman which is one of the better fonts according to that experiment. To be honest I think it's the printing devices which are more of the problem rather than the font.

    Making small tweaks on the printer driver itself, such as reducing the print quality to the lowest level is usually perfectly sufficient for text.

    Word 2007 and onwards defaults to the new Calibri font, which wasn't tested.

    Personally I really like Garamond, and have been using it on my own correspondence in place of Times New Roman for many years. Apparently I've been saving money too!
