The easy way to optimize your site for printing is to create a separated external css targeting a media to print only. When a printing action is being executed, the browser will send over the information from your page to the printer. It will also check if there is any specific style sheet that will be used for printing mode only. If there is, it will then render the page content using the media print css file. Therefore the page you see in the printer paper may completely looks different with the one you see in a page. The idea of optimizing in here is to hide unnecessary content.
