Printfriendly – Making PRINTING from WEB much simpler

Get the crux of the matter

You must have faced this. You want to print a certain page from the web and you end up with several unwanted images, ads and a lot of blank pages. This is where Printfriendly comes in. The website automatically reformats whatever you want to print from a website. Navigation bars are removed, text and images are altered to make them readable.

Copy the URL of the article you want to print and then go to www.printfriendly.com.

1.On the Printfriendly page, you will see a search bar right on top saying, “Make any web page Print Friendly and PDF”.

2.Paste the URL of the web page you want to print in the search bar and click preview.

3.All the ads and other junk will have been removed and the page optimised for printing.
