Just before printing, Ecofont unnoticeably converts all letters and characters in your document into an ink-saving equivalent of those letters and characters. This looks exactly the same as the font you use on your screen, but with significantly less pixels actually printed. These so called ‘holes’ are hardly recognised by the human brain, and therefore the quality of the print is still exactly the way you were used to.
Independent tests from Buyerslab demonstrate a 46,5% saving in toner ink with Ecofont compared to normal printing.
Ecofont unnoticeably converts all letters and characters in your document into an ink-saving equivalent of those letters and characters. This will take just a few seconds of extra processing time. For larger documents and PDFs the additional printing time can be 5-10 seconds.
