A creative communications company has developed a new, eco-friendly font that will help you use 20% less printer ink. SPRANQ, a Dutch design firm, developed Ecofont to inform consumers about the impacts of their use of printer paper and ink.
Designers were convinced that a font could use less while ink while still maintaining a professional look and of course readability. SPRANQ began testing and ended up choosing a design based on the Vera Sans font. When Ecofont is printed at around size 9 or 10, you can’t even tell there are holes in the printed letters. The new font also eliminated the use of dots on certain letters.
The best part about is that you can download Ecofont for free by clicking the link. The company is soliciting donations if you feel inclined to support their cause for greener printing.
