    Saving Ink at Home
    Supposedly, this font saves 20% of the ink you use while printing.

    Looks a little rough on the screen, but it actually prints really nicely. Close to ARIAL.

    Thanks for this, I have downloaded it and will check it out. Seems readable enough on screen, too.

    Yeah, I can read it fine on the screen. Just a little rough is all. I'm printing all my sales records and other items I'm obliged to keep hard copies of with it. Haven't used it long enough to comment on the real savings yet though.

    Champion it at the SAS offices, CTang. Then ask for a well deserved raise.

    surprisingly, we actually don't print much at the office no need to! But it's already on the list of things to install at home. Such a great idea, and such an easy, tiny change for hopefully long term impact.

    Was just thinking about you this morning, found out that the new place I moved to...the park district offers kayak fishing excursions! So excited!

    I print most everything "Black & White" and "Draft" to save ink. I wonder how this font would look with those settings. I'll have to check it out.

    John: It defaults to a 12px size. I dropped mine down to 10.

    I think some printers have a "grey" setting too, which also conserves ink.

    That's really cool! With all the packing slips and things we print, this could come in really handy. Thanks
