Cheap Ink Printer Cartridges and Laser Toner

Buy inkjet and laser printer cartridges online

With printer ink cartridges costing as much as some printers, many are looking to find small ways to lower their printing costs. One that is often overlooked is simply choosing a different font when you print.

Actually, you can save 31% on your in cartridge cost by just picking the right font.

A recent study using a Canon Pixma MP 210 for home users and a Brother HL-2140 laser printer for business we used to test this theory. Both printers were left at the default of 600 x 600 dpi. The results showed that by only changing the font, the savings of $20 to $80 per year are possible.

The results showed that switching to Century Gothic over Arial produced a 31% savings for both printers. So for the average home printer printing 25 pages per week, this translates into $20 per year. For the average business user printing 250 pages per week, the savings jumped to $80 per year.

The 2nd and 3rd best fonts in the study were Ecofont and Times Roman.
