A Dutch company called SPRANQ has developed a simple yet brilliant way to save ink: the Ecofont. According to the its creators, the font saves up to 20 percent of the ink normally used in printing.
The key to Ecofont is its style of white dots filled inside each letter which minimize ink usage. Ecofont looks best with font size 9 or 10, and is only available in a sans serif version.
