How Much Could The Government Save By Switching Fonts
It seems that politicians are always talking about budgets. We either have too much money (yeah right) or we don’t have enough and we need to make cuts somewhere. How about this – how much could the government save by switching fonts on their printed papers?
A genius 14 year old decided to figure that out. Currently most papers are written and printed using the Times New Roman font. This kid figured out that if we would just switch to a thinner and less artsy font like Garamond or Corbel we could save $370 across all city, state, and national government offices!
The government seems to enjoy wasting money though…so this probably won’t happen. In the meantime, you can do it yourself and save almost 30% on ink every year.
