    Saving Ink

    Hi All:

    Lasky's column in the most recent newsletter said that changing your font could save you a lot of ink.

    So (and I don't know if this is a dumb question or not) would the same go for the powdery stuff in laser printers, or would it just work for the liquid ink?

    I would think it should work just logically thinking that if a font uses less it should use less of whatever, but sometimes there are strange exceptions to things that I just wouldn't know about.

    Anyone know for sure?
    TIA,
    ~m

    A regular plain font, without bolding, and with less flare, will usually always save ink as opposed to something that uses more of the attributes mentioned earlier.
    I don't believe it will matter what type of printer you are using.

    Another option with Laser printers is to print in draft mode. On HP printers it's called Economode. The print usually comes out looking grey.
    Just don't be too stingy, toner has a shelf life too. This often shows up as specks sticking to the page, double images, or other printer problems.
