Ever visited a web page and found an article you wanted to save as a pdf but the problem is your not as tech savvy to do it?

Printfriendly Review | What Is PrintFriendly?
PrintFriendly cleans and formats web pages for a perfect print experience. PrintFriendly removes Ads, Navigation and web page junk, so you save paper and ink when you print. It’s free and easy to use. Perfect to use at home, the office, or whenever you need to print a web page.
In 2009, a guy by the name of Taylor Norrish had an innovative idea to solve the problems of too much waste of paper and ink.
At the time, Taylor was working in the IT department at his job and was messing with some CSS. Taylor ended up creating a fast and effective way to print web documents without wasting printer paper and ink called PrintFriendly.

The way I use this most amazing and time-saving tool is for taking my blog posts and sharing them on social media sites like SlideShare to drive traffic to our website.
Other uses of this tool you can use to print website to pdf, print important articles you want to save and read later and pretty much print what you like that you found interesting to save on the web.
As a regular user and blogger, I have the PrintFriendly button that I downloaded from the Google App Store called the print friendly chrome button extension.
PrintFriendly is available for the following internet browsers:
You can even use it now on your iPad and iPhone but not yet on Android mobile devices.
Now there is also an upgrade for just $6 a month called PrintFriendly Pro which allows you to print without the ads appearing on your document.
The things you can do with Print Friendly:
- Print Preview web pages, blog posts, articles with an URL
- Save as PDF
- Email Page
- Remove images and text that just clutter your document
- Edit the font size for easy visibility (Great for elderly people for personal use)
PrintFriendly Review | Conclusion
Personally, I just use the free version and don’t mind the ads showing up. Using PrintFriendly has saved me lots of time and money on ink because I use it for both business and personal uses.
I actually have used this tool almost every day for something whether it be for me to save blog posts and share them on sites like SlideShare or just to shoot a quick email to a client who does not have access to a printer.
