Dimples Leads Ink-Saving Font Technology

Generate ink-saving font overlays for custom applications in publishing, managed print, and general licensing

The Dimples Type service enables organizations to reduce the burden of ink/toner costs.

Customer return-on-investment is significant, as our ink-saving technology can enable up to 40% savings on printed text. Each font overlay we produce is the result of a combination of expert human knowledge and patented computational algorithms.
