Indian-origin Suvir Mirchandani suggested use of Garamond font to save 400 million dollar

Apr 1, 2014 16:10 IST

A 14-year-old Indian origin teenager Suvir Manchandani suggested a way to US government to save 400 million dollars. The suggestion is to simply change the font which was used in official documents.

Suvir Mirchandani calculated that if the government chose Garamond font instead of Times New Roman, it would use 25 per cent less ink because each character is lighter and thinner.

His idea began when he worked out how much his school in Pennsylvania could save in ink after watching multiple leaflets be handed out.

imageHe then extended the study to a national level and concluded that if the federal government used just Garamond it could save 136 million dollar per year.

An additional 234 million dollar could be saved annually if state governments also change the font.
