It’s that time of year, summer is in air and with the increase of sun rays hitting your face comes an increased desire for ice cream. But with a tight budget this year, you will most likely be limited to buying store brand ice cream when a pint’s on sale for a dollar or only buying a cone –sans ice cream – at Ben & Jerry’s. That is, unless you can lower your printing costs and use the saved money for frozen goodness.
So how do you save money without cutting down on printing any more than you have? Change fonts. Smaller fonts take up less space and thus can fit more information on a piece of page, reducing the amount of paper needed to print out. And some fonts use less ink than others, reducing the frequency of ink refills which is the most expensive part of printing. Look for a font with ‘narrow’ or ‘light’ in it’s name and think about serif fonts, they tend to have thinner lines than sans serif fonts. Consider the following fonts:
- Century Gothic
- Sans Serif
- Franklin Gothic Medium
