You’ve probably experienced it before; that sense of complete frustration when you try and print off a page from a website and you end up wasting various pieces of paper, not to mention the ink involved. It’s certainly happened to me and I am sick to death of killing off all those trees and spending a fortune on ink cartridges for my printer!
Well, I’ve got good news. The other day I came across a very interesting tool that pretty much solves our printing problems. Apart from being extremely useful, this tool is also FREE, which is a welcome bonus! It’s a web based tool called “Print What You Like” and it makes printing web pages easy, cheaper and ecofriendly.
It’s really simple to use. You just go to the Print What You Like Website and enter the URL of the web page you want to print; this will open a control panel on the left side of your browser, which is where you choose the specific options you want for printing the page. Rather than confuse you by trying to explain the process, the best thing for you to do is head over to their website and either watch the video on the home page or click on the “Try the Demo” button for a complete run through of how the tool works.
Once you’ve mastered the tool, you even have the option to download their bookmarklet which adds the PrintWhatYouLike editor to your browser for easy access. I’ve done this and it makes it fantastically simple to print out exactly what I want from a web page; with less damage to the environment and a substantial saving in ink cartridges which my wallet appreciates!
Go on, give it a go, you’ve got nothing to lose as it’s totally free! www.printwhatyoulike.com
