Print and full width (a4) images?

  • # April 28, 2009 at 3:54 am

    Hi guys,

    I’m working on some product specification sheets with css print and I need a image stretching the full a4-sheet (the printable area of it).

    But I can’t figure how wide it has to be?

    Plus it’s a hell to make sure images get printed cross-browser. And as backgrounds or normal images.. Pff =)

    Hmmm. I’m not familiar with "CSS Print" is that a CSS framework or just you want to print with CSS? I couldn’t find it on google. :?

    Well for one, background images don’t print. I found that 700px wide is a good printable size. see the print preview of this page:

    Is that what you’re looking for?
