The printer is a tool also!

Brad Frost created one of the much more commonly utilized images discovered on responsive style presentations. This shows the world we stay in today which includes hundreds of tools with internet capacities.

With each of these tools brings the difficulty for our web sites to react in a rational, attractive as well as most of all easy to use method.

The problem is that we’re focusing way too much on the future tools and we’ve failed to remember the tools that have been with us for several years.

The Printer

While not the snazziest of devices linked to the web it STILL is a device that can render our web pages, and sadly this is probably one of the most forgotten and also least styled of all the devices around.

The Print Style sheet

In October 2013 I did a talk at the Squiz User Seminar on how you can make adjustments to your internet site without actually changing anything. While preparing the talk I took at fallen leave out of an additional talk I had seen during dConstruct by Maciej Cegłowski, developer of PinBoard. The leaf I took was to offer the target market with something that they can utilize on Monday morning when they returned to function, and pass it off to their boss as it was their own. For me this takeaway was the Squiz.io website.

I wanted it to be greater than an internet site so I added some HTML5 editable regions to allow the viewers to upgrade the title and summary, and then applied a Print Style sheet so it was nicely formatted for after that to print as well as work off as their very own suggestions.
