Free Quick Print vs Pro Print

Should you use Print My Blog’s Free Quick Print or Pro? We’ll give you all the details here!

Quick Answer

Of course we’d prefer you paid for Pro Print because it:

  • makes professional-looking printouts you could sell or share to represent your company or organization
  • has features like table of contents, customize order and grouping content into sections, pre-built and custom designs, footnotes and page references, custom post types (eg shop products or events), and more

But it might not meet certain needs yet. Free Quick Print:

  • is free and requires no registration
  • handles printing out thousands of posts or pages
  • is very quick and easy to use
  • uses your site’s theme
  • works on private sites (localhost or behind a network firewall)

So Print Print will look better, but you might still prefer or need Free Quick Print.
