According to a 14-year-old middle schooler from Pittsburgh called Suvir Mirchandani, the US government would be able to save up to $400 million USD simply by switching their typeface from Times New Roman to the thinner Garamond. To calculate this, Mirchandani recorded the ink usage of four main fonts - Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans. The results showed that Garamond used 24% less ink than Times New Roman. Once this was applied to the government’s annual ink budget of $467 million, he concluded that the federal government could save $136 million a year by exclusively using Garamond. If the state governments also got involved, it could save an additional $234 million, totalling almost $400 million is savings. Of course, this is only an estimate, but it’s still staggering what a difference simply changing typeface could make.
