Eco Font Outdone by Century Gothic

Diane Blohowiak, Director of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay, says that using century gothic text uses 30 per cent less ink than Arial.

The University CIO says that for those who are looking to go green, should switch their font to Century Gothic. Blohowiak says that this text uses even less ink than an alleged "eco font" which has been released.

The CIO also added that printer ink costs her department $10,000 per gallon, and therefore this would also be a great money saver for her team.

Blohowiak said that that this information is useful for her colleagues who are "interested in doing what they can to be environmentally conscious and minimize use of resources".

"But," she added, "it is also appealing to people to save money on their supply and expense budgets," she added.
