Cropped-off margins. Scrambled layouts. Endless, extra pages. Printing from the web can be a battle between the page you see and the print you get.

If you’re one of 130 million MySpace™ users who think printing from the web is just too much trouble, it’s time to try printing again.

What’s new?

Thanks to an agreement between HP and MySpace, you can now click on a “print” button on MySpace pages to get a print-ready version of what you see there -- including photos, blogs and comments from friends. And, you can choose only the images or pages you want to print: What you select on the screen is what you see on the print out.

With this new capability, billions of images on the most trafficked website in the U.S. are finally freed for sharing in the real world.

How is it different?

The difference is that you can print directly from MySpace. For example, if you want to print a photo, there’s no need to save the image to a hard drive first. Sure, you can use your browser or the “print screen” option on your keyboard to print, but why would you when you can simply click the “print” button? (Dude, it’s easier, do it.)

What about the trees?

With the new “print” button, you can print and save paper and ink. Since you can select only what you want to print, you use less paper. And, because you can remove navigation, banners, dark images, backgrounds and other content from the print, you save ink. Request free postage paid shipping material from for your HP inkjet or LaserJet print cartridges or return them to an HP Authorized Retail Location such as Staples for responsible recycling through HP Planet Partners.

OK, I can print. Now what?

That’s up to you, because it’s all about being able to experience your photos, blogs and friends’ comments in new ways you may have not thought about before.

For example, since sharing photos is one of the most popular activities on MySpace, having the capability to print them opens up a world of possibilities and new ways to express yourself.

Express yourself in new ways

And, you can print photos from your own profile, as well as those from other profiles. So, if your band, club or other type of group has a MySpace profile, this gives you a great way to let people print your photos to boost your promotional efforts.

You can also use MySpace photos to create and print creative projects, like photo cubes of your friends and family for gifts or mementos of special events in your life.

With the new “print” button, you not only have the power to print, you have the power to do more with your MySpace content – your way.
