Pittsburgh middle school student Suvir Mirchandani says his idea will save the federal and state governments more than $400 million on their yearly printing costs.

The 14-year-old says all they need to do is make one simple change.

"So what I propose is that the government switch the font that they're using for all their documents to a particular font called Garamond. It can save a lot of money and a lot of ink," said Mirchandani.

He says ink costs more by volume than many high-end perfumes and that the federal government alone would save $136 million per year.

His proposal started as a science fair project on how his school could save money.

With his teacher's encouragement, he applied his analysis to the government.
