Freebie Friday! Print Friendly

Ever come across a page that you need to print out (recipes/instructions/patterns/etc), but there are so many elements that it looks like a carnival threw up on the web site? Never fear, Print Friendly & PDF is here to save the day. Print Friendly & PDF optimizes the page(s) you want to print by taking out the junk, but leaving in the important bits you need. It creates an editable, savable PDF file with links. It's very easy to use. Just copy the URL of the web site you want to print or convert to a PDF document, paste it into the Preview box at Print Friendly & PDF and click. To remove elements that you don't want, click on them and they disappear.

Turn this:

Into this:

Then hit print! No muss, no fuss.

If you find yourself using the site frequently, you can add the browser extensions for all the major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, etc.). Alternately you can drag and drop a bookmarklet to your favorite bar that enables you to produce a printable PDF with one click on any web page. There is also a paid version of Print Friendly for business web sites.

The next time you want to simplify the printed page, head on over to Print Friendly & PDF!

Enjoy your weekend!
