Stumble Findings: Save Ink! Use Garamond font!

Hello, followers!

Sorry for the delay, I've been busy with midterms and breaking up with my girlfriend (baw I know but it's cool). Anyway, this update is coming to you late because my friend from California came to visit and BROUGHT ME IN-N-OUT ALL THE WAY FROM L.A!!!!!


Despite the fact that it had not been refrigerated in over 12 hours, I scarfed that mofo double-double like a boss and my stomach was so satisfied to have such a glorious burger inside of it that it refused to puke it out. DELICIOUS.

Anyway! On to the actual post..

Ever wonder which font used the most/least ink, and wanted to test it out by drawing the fonts on your wall using pens? Well, too bad, because someone already did it!

Someone ALWAYS steals your bright ideas!

This awesome experiment was done by designers Matt Robinson and Tom Wigglesworth using ballpoint pens. These were the results, with Garamond the clear winner and Cooper Black living up to its name.

(That comment up there was in no way racist.)

So there you have it! Next time you're raging about how expensive printer ink is, least you can change your font!


Hope you guys enjoyed!
