Mixing 5-15R 5-20R on 20A circuit

I am installing a new 20A outlet circuit on the garage shop with a couple of 2-gang boxes. I do not see a need for all 20A outlets, may be half and half. I would assume there is no code issue with doing that. May be the savings in cost is not significant and I should go with all 20s.

I'm not an electrician, but I've read enough other posts on the subject to say with some confidence that 15 amp outlets on a 20 amp circuit are functionally fine, acceptable per code, and very common.
