Go Goth to Go Green!
Print “Greener” With Century Gothic
Did you know that the simple step of changing the default type font on your computer will reduce your use of printer ink by 31 percent? For individual printers printing 25 pages a week, that is a savings of approximately $20 per year! For communal machines printing 250 pages a week, the savings goes up to $80 per year. Just think how much ink—and money—we could save across campus with this one small change!
The box below shows an average business cost comparison of Arial (the most commonly used font), Times New Roman and Century Gothic:
