Eco Font

There is a new print friendly typeface in town.


Here’s the backstory: Most printer cartridges end up in landfills. The more ink we use, the more garbage we create. So Spranq designed a font that uses 20 percent less ink by simply removing as much of each letter as possible, while still leaving it readable. Basically, the whizzes got rid of the line that connects the dots to create the characters.
As if it weren't cool already, it's free to download. So, my font loving friends, enjoy and be green.
