Holey Font

ecofont ecofont


"After Dutch holey cheese, there now is a Dutch font with holes as well."

I discovered this new font via the blog of Jennifer Squires it’s called Ecofont. It was designed by a company called Spranq in The Netherlands and it’s said to use up to 20% less ink when printed. This is done by cutting small circles out of the characters that, at regular print size, can’t be seen.

I think the font with the holes is quite attractive itself! To learn more and download the font for free click here

btw I love this photo by jennifersquires - the color is stunning, reminds me of the pink in my zebra stripes below... check out her etsy shop for more!

I've also stocked my shop with a few more silly cats
Franz by you.
"Keep Calm and Carry on Franz"
I've been seeing these posters all over etsy so decided
to do my interpretation via Franz's reaction to the
order... ambivalence perhaps?
His tripod-like rear
legs might slow him down but cause him great angst...
