HP’s Smart Web Printing is a FREE application that allows you to select, collect, store, combine, and print information from multiple Web pages. Check out the great benefits and features of HP Smart Web Printing:

  • Print only what you want
    Take small pieces of text and images from multiple Web sites and transfer them to one convenient document for easy printing!
  • Print selections immediately
    In addition to printing selections from numerous Web pages, Smart Web Printing gives you the option to select, cut, and print a portion of a Web page immediately.
  • Store and organize
    Paste your Web content selections into your personal Clip Book for easy storage and access. Your selections will remain in the Clip Book until you delete them, eliminating the need for you to continually add bookmarks to your browser!
  • Edit your selections
    Choose the Web selections you’d like to print from your Clip Book, and organize, resize, or add text labels to them before printing.
  • Save resources
    Combining Web page selections instead of printing entire pages is a great way to conserve ink and paper.

HP Smart Web Printing can help you create a variety of useful documents using your printed Web pages:

  • Compile gift lists
    Keep a record of the people you need to buy for throughout the year, especially during the holiday season. As you spot gift ideas while browsing the Web, add them to your Clip Board then print the page for a convenient gift list.  And don’t forget, you can also make a wish list just for yourself!
  • Create your own tools
    Easily print maps, instructions, and any information you’d like to take from the Web out into the real world. For example, if you’re renovating your home, visit different home improvement Web sites and collect different fabric samples, fixtures, or floor designs to take with you when shopping or meeting with a contractor or decorator.
  • Plan the perfect trip
    Gather information from various airlines, hotels, and travel guide pages to help plan a trip, or collect details such as flight information, addresses, and tourist activities and create a one-page, easy-to-print itinerary.
  • Assess competitors
    Create a document containing competing products or services, either for a client, or to take along when shopping. Such a document can help you find the best deal or negotiate with a sales person.
  • Make the Web work for you
    Gather an assortment of visuals or product examples from the Web to show clients. For instance, event planners could gather floral arrangement samples to show clients in an organized, easy-to-view presentation.
