"I Didn't Want All That Stuff!"

Ever find a website with an article you want to print, but when you pick your copy up off the printer you get all the "extra stuff" on the sides or pages full of ads?

Here are a couple of online tools to help you get rid of the "extra stuff" and get just the facts.

Print Friendly - Once you go to their site, you simply copy and paste the URL of the page you want to print and click print preview.  One the preview page you can remove text and images you don't wish to print.

Joliprint - Like Print Friendly, you copy and paste the URL of the page you want to print on the Joliprint website and click 'joliprint it!'  Unlike Print Friendly, you do not get a preview of what will print or the option to remove additional unwanted text and images.  However, there is a wider range of options for accessing and sharing your document.

Both tools allow you to add a Bookmarklet/Add-on to your internet browser toolbar.  By adding these to your browser toolbar, you can skip the process of going to the Print Friendly or Joliprint website.  You can simply go to the page you want to print, click on the bookmarklet and it will create a clean copy of your page for printing and sharing.
