A multi-million-dollar trim

Some years ago, COPI (Computer Output Print & Internet) was contracted to reduce the cost of producing and mailing Pacific Bell’s (now AT&T) millions of client phone bills. After an extensive study, trimming the font used for the billing was the most viable solution.

COPI’s font specialists developed a mathematical algorithm to remove an undetectable amount of space above and below each character. The resultant savings in paper, ink, and postage resulted in millions of dollars - every year.

And it was all accomplished without affecting the readability of the phone bills.
