Printing

There are default fonts that use less paper and ink. there are also programs like "EcoFont" that print documents with holes in the letters. The holes are the size of pixels and are not noticeable to the naked eye but they are able to save on ink. These two ideas combined could save the GOV more than 50% on all printed documents, with savings in ink and paper. I have done estimates in my office and the pay back would be one month. After that everything is a savings. With ink being one of the most expensive liquids on the planet I think this would be a very easy way to save money across the United States.
