Öz Some of the fonts used in computer systems are designed to facilitate readability on the computer screen while others are designed to use both readability and print space economically. However, computer users do not have any idea which of the most commonly used fonts are used more economically. In the present study, the printing area of the 10 commonly used fonts were examined with image processing methods and compared among each other. It is seen that the font which uses the least print area from Century Schoolbook, Courier New, Georgia, Times New Roman, Arial, Comic Sans MS, Tahoma, Verdana, Cambria, Calibri fonts is Courier New and then the type that uses the least print area is Times New Roman. It was found that Comic Sans MS and Verdana used almost two times the printing area according to the font Courier New font. With this study, it is thought that computer users will be more careful and more conscious about the font they use for printing.
