Print My Blog Pro Released!

Print My Blog Pro is now fully launched, and a 50% discount is available until June 18th.

After about a year of development, Print My Blog Pro is now fully launched! Use it to make professional-looking documents and books directly in your WordPress site.

It’s now on WordPress.org and available for purchase from printmy.blog. To get the party started, I also added a 50% discount.

By the way,

  • the lifetime licenses were already granted perpetual access for the price of 3 years,
  • The yearly licenses were as much as 70% off the monthly licenses,
  • and the monthly prices were already comparable to tools like Designr and PressBooks.

So I think the savings are pretty substantial! Please share!

You can try it for free, without signing up. Just download Print My Blog to your WordPress website and try the “Pro Print” option.

What’s the Big Deal?

Print My Blog Pro combines the power of WordPress (and its plethora of plugins) with Prince CSS to create professional-quality documents and books.

There are actually quite a few other plugins and websites that will convert blog posts into PDFs, but they usually don’t work very well with any of its plugins because they don’t load the plugins’ CSS, nor execute their Javascript. Print My Blog works in a way that those still work. So go ahead, use your pagebuilder, e-commerce plugin, and other plugins.

Prince CSS can create really beautiful, and functional, and documents, including: page references, footnotes, full control of page margins and content, page bleed, and image placement, and lot of other cool stuff—all in CSS. But you need to write the document in HTML yourself. But with Print My Blog Pro, you just use WordPress, then Print My Blog assembles your posts’ HTML for conversion via Prince CSS.

What Can You Do with Print My Blog Pro?

Convert existing WordPress content into Digital and Print-Ready PDFs, or use WordPress, and your favourite plugins, to make new documents. Here are some examples:

  • white paper or brochure. For example, this here is a PDF brochure made from content on printmy.blog
  • printed version of entire website or blog. Print it all, except ink guzzlers like site heading, sidebars, footers and pop-ups. Use your own printer or send to a printing service lulu.com
