If you frequently print out webpages then you would know how unnecessary page elements like ad boxes, useless images etc suck ink which escalates the printing cost. Hence it is always advisable to strip down the page to the essentials before hitting the print command.
There is a useful Windows-only tool known as iPrint which helps you do it effortlessly. It can cut your printing expenses by up to 65%. And no, it is not by Apple (obviously), even though it appears to be from its name.
After installing the tool, give the print instruction to any page by pressing “Ctrl+P” button. The print options window(shown in the screenshot below) will appear. Select iPrint as your printer. Press Print button. It will display a print list (pages which are included for printing).
You can do lots of things with iPrint preview. It automatically detects and deletes unwanted pages from the print list. You can also delete any unwanted page manually. You can print more than one pages on a single page.
Apart from saving on ink and reducing the printing cost, it also saves you time by collecting print jobs from multiple applications and printing all of them at a same time. It also measures and displays percentage of savings at the bottom.
