Dimples has developed a product which saves over 30% on ink and toner, while helping reduce the carbon footprint of printers.
How do we do it?
We add small perforations, or “dimples”, to the printed text to create negative space within your favorite fonts, along with special “ink bleed” zones. Unlike some other solutions, our software is easy to install and maintains the legibility of the text.
Print ink-saving Word documents with just 1 click. It even monitors your carbon emission savings.
Save ink in any application with the Dimples Slim Serif font family.
Why Use Dimples?
Analysts estimate that printing costs will continue to increase at an annual rate of 20% to 40%.
- Ink/toner for printing is a significant financial and environmental expense, but both can be slashed by a third with Dimples. Gartner Group reports that office printing costs comprise 1% to 3% of total corporate revenues. Analysts estimate that printing costs will continue to increase at an annual rate of 20% to 40%.
- As consumption grows, so does the environmental impact, from manufacturing to use to disposal. A typical laser printer emits 3.2 kg CO2 per toner cartridge, producing about 2,500 printed pages per cartridge for an HP LaserJet 3200. By using Dimples, the emissions for printing those same 2,500 pages would be reduced by over 1.0 kg CO2!
- Dimples can help minimize office workers’ exposure to volatile organic compounds and other toxins emitted by cartridges and print compounds. For example, toner is generally composed of plastic and carbon, so toner dust released can cause respiratory problems and irritation if inhaled. Fortunately, because of Dimples’ efficient printing software, less toner is required.
With Dimples, less ink/toner is consumed, thus reducing both ink/toner expense and environmental impact by nearly a third.
