Frugal fonts

My husband drew my attention to an article recently about how the font you use can save you money when printing. It makes sense — sans serif, less dense font, less ink, ink lasts longer, printer lasts longer, BINGO! Save money. But anyway, they determined the font that would save you the most dough is Century Gothic, estimating a $20 savings a year (compared to Arial) for the average person.

Find the article here.

Man, I hope Comic Sans costs a million bajillion dollars...

I love that last line. And surely Papyrus must be an ink bleeder too, non?

The government doesn't know it could save so much money without requiring all NIH applications to be in Arial!
