Ecofont, A great way to save ink

I may have shared this before, but doing it again, Ecofont is an awesome little True-type font that helps you save printer ink.

In essence what it is, is a font with small "holes" cut into the letters, they are very tiny and once printed out at most normal font sizes are almost imperceptible to the human eye. The cool part is though, each given letter probably take,s half the ink it would normally take to print, this can really add up.

Now I don't recommend this for like many “professional” documents mind you, like said it’s ALMOST imperceptible, but when you are doing grocery lists, or chore charts, stuff for around the house, your next RPG gaming Character Sheet, any thing that you would feel comfortable printing on “draft” quality in the first place.

I've been using it for a while now, over 2 year,s and I'm really happy with the results, I jsut recently had a HD crash and had to re-install everything though, so I figure,d  "hey if I have to re-download it, let's share the page while I'm there."

The best part, it's free, that's right, the Font is free.  They do offer other services and apps based around the concept, that cost money, but the basic True-type font itself, is a free download for both Win & Mac
