The world today has shifted to digital copies for reading. However, there was a time when everyone preferred to read printed copies of books, magazines and articles. While reading a printed, people usually do not care about how a font size and style can impact your printer. But, it can indeed leave an impact on the cartridge of your printer.
There are several types of inks used in printing, that play a major role on how long your printer will last on a single cartridge. Font size and style also play a part here. Fonts with fewer strokes per letter, including Arial Narrow and Calibri Light, saves a lot of ink, this being pocket-friendly. Use of thinner fonts help to save on printing ink, as new ink cartridges are too expensive for you to afford. Choosing the thinnest font available for your design will minimize the cost of buying new ink cartridges.
One should stick to narrow or light versions of fonts, rather than jet black or blue inks, if they wish to save ink. Using a dark font requires more ink, thus impacting the life of a cartridge. For example, the Century Gothic font is said to use average 30 percent less ink as compared to Arial font.
A few fonts that are best of the long life of your printer are Century Gothic, Times New Roman, Calibri, Verdani, and Arial. Use of less ink not only saves you penny, but is also an environment-friendly move as ink cartridges production and disposal pollute the environment and add to landfill waste.
