One of the easier ways to save on toner cost is by using economical fonts in the documents that we print. Revising a document to use a more economical font only takes a few clicks and cursor-movements via your computer mouse. When you hit the print button, toner consumed can be a little less for your document.
Arial, Century Gothic and Ecofont are three of the most economical fonts. Arial is the more commonly used font among the three as it is packaged with most computer operating systems. It only uses 4.97% paper coverage. Century Gothic is considered by most studies the most economical font as it has only 3.45% coverage but can use more paper.
Ecofont is a font style developed precisely to increase environmental awareness. It saves up to 20% toners because when texts are printed using this font style, the text characters have tiny black circles in it which do not require toners. Ecofont Vera sans can be downloaded here for free.
Ecofont has since developed Ecofont software that makes holey version of any font of your choice including Ecofont Century Gothic. The software isn't free but using Ecofont Century Gothic can also save on paper cost.
Using economical fonts can bring you significant savings on toner cartridge cost. Purchasing compatible laser toner cartridges as replacement will give you immediate savings as they are more affordable than OEM toners.
