Ecofont: A Green Typface

By Holly Peterson

Whether it's the perfect pair of socks or a crisp, clean line of type, I'm a stickler for quality. So I was understandably skeptical of Ecofont, a Dutch-designed font that conserves ink because it has holes in it. Would it make our text look like it's met a firing squad? And, would a few holes at point 12 font really save us 20 percent in ink output? To our surprise, test prints resulted in highly respectable jet black letters and undetectable holes. Add the fact that the new typeface means fewer trips to Staples (and, thus, empty cartridges in the landfills), and we just might bid farewell to our friend Mr. Helvetica forever.
