GREEN BAY, Wis. – A Wisconsin college has found a new way to cut costs with e-mail — by changing the font.
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has switched the default font on its e-mail system from Arial to Century Gothic. It says that while the change sounds minor, it will save money on ink when students print e-mails in the new font.
Diane Blohowiak is the school’s director of computing. She says the new font uses about 30 percent less ink than the previous one.
