Serving Up Wind-Powered Fonts

Did you know we’ve been using windmills to make our fonts for the past two years? Well, kinda.

The electricity at Chank Co is 100% supplied by wind farms. It’s surprising to me how few people know how easy it is to have your home or office powered by wind energy. The program, offfered here in Minnesota by Xcel Energy, is called Windsource® and it allows you to purchase up to 100% of your energy needs through wind sources. You can even opt to have a smaller portion of your energy supplied by wind power if you’d like. The program is available to both residential and commercial customers.

You just pay a little bit more every month to be a part of the program, and Xcel buys as much energy as you need from wind farms who supply their energy to the grid. In our case it costs an extra 10 or 20 bucks a month; that’s about how much extra it costs the average household here. And that’s not a lot considering it reduces our dependance on coal, oil or nuclear-based energy. Granted, manufacturing fonts doesn’t take a whole lot of energy; but at least we’re doing our small part to reduce our carbon footprint here at Chank Co.

Keep in mind that the top jump ring will be the ring
sliding onto necklace chain or cord and therefore, it should be sized accordingly.
Over time, brides and grooms have had to prioritize and itemize the necessities to make their day as special as possible;
from food selection to DJs and music to the place settings and
favors that decorate the tables. Since you want to find trendy jewelry that matches well with your
dress, you should first identify your tone. Secondly, 14k rings made of white gold could suit
all occasions, not only for weddings, but they are also available and suitable for numerous purposes and easily
adaptable to any specialty design to make it
truly special to the wearer.
