- Indicate the URL of the web page’s original version
Specify web page width to avoid cropping
Page width matters a lot if you want to make your web pages easy to print and presentable. Remember, unless you web page serves the width criteria of 600 pixels or less, there will always be a chance of the page not fitting into the printed page. This includes cropping out of necessary information. A better option is to specify your page width in percentage terms. In this way the web page to be printed will get adjusted to whatever width your printer is set-up to and will not get cropped.
Create a link to a printer-friendly version for your web page
If you have a web page that presents important content that a visitor to that page would most likely want to print, it is suggested that you create a link to a printer-friendly version for that page. Mind you, you are not required to create a printer-friendly version of all the web pages of your website. Just create for those which you are most likely to get printed.
The URL of the original version of the page should be denoted. In addition to this, the page should contain only the text, which should be left justified for further reading.
So, all you web users, what are you waiting for? Just remember these aforementioned tips and make you web pages clear, readable, and, of course, easy to print.
