Use EcoFont to Save Printer Ink

Does your computer printer use a lot of ink? Mine does, even when I go in and change the printer to fast draft before printing and gray scale only. 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 allows you to download an ink-saving font. Ecofont ink-sparing fonts include Times New Roman, Calibri and Franklin Gothic Medium. I hope you like this tip as much as I do!

Use EcoFont to Save Printer Ink

I just did this, downloaded their free shareware font and tried it out. I have no idea if it will save that much ink, but the font is pretty cute, with tiny little dots inside each letter, forming the same shape as the letter, like a dot T inside the letter T. My daughter likes it, and says it looks like "polka dot ribbon". I will see if I notice a difference in ink consumption. (08/25/2010)

I'd never thought of this, since I use toner. But I have a friend on a fixed income with an "inkasaurus" who'll love it! (08/26/2010)
