News Flash: New Environmentally Friendly Font Reduces Ink Consumption

Are you someone who composes documents and prints a lot? Are you concerned about your ink consumption? Well, worry no longer – I’ve found a font for you that takes care of this! It is called the Ecofont, and works for both Mac and PC.

Recently developed by SPRANQ, this font was created with the hopes to increase environmental awareness; the font is said to use 20% less ink. Now if we can just use 20% less paper… we’d be set!

The font has an interesting look to it – almost giving the impression of bling.

Hey, you can print bling?!?

This font omits part of the letter, effectively reducing the amount of ink on the page. Best of all, Ecofont is freeware and they accept donations. This font works best when you use OpenOffice, AppleWorks or Microsoft Word 2007 with a laser printer.

Are you ready to download Ecofont yet? What about other printer-friendly fonts, do you know of any? Do you know of any more fonts that look bling-ish? Feel free to share!
