Custom Printer Friendly Pages
If potential patients are printing a page from your website, they like what you are saying and want to carry that message with them. The default print process includes all the elements seen on the screen when not all elements are instrumental to the message being printed. The result is a waste of printer ink, paper, and the potential patient's time. Printing non-essential items, such as a website's main navigation, unnecessary graphics, or overly large photographs, can frustrate potential patients.
Our website design and development team takes time to review the printed page and adjusts the output accordingly. We know patients don't like wasting resources, so we suppress the printing of web page elements such as the navigation bars and sub-menus. Content is formatted to fill and fit the printed page.
How do printer-friendly web pages help potential patients?
Printer-friendly pages provide patients with printed pages containing only the most important information such as:
- practice name and/or logo
- practice address & telephone information
- page title
- page content
Printer-friendly pages also help patients by:
- saving printing time
- saving paper
- saving color ink
What do printer-friendly pages exclude?
Printer-friendly pages do not include the website background images or graphics that tend to use up lots of expensive color ink. While the color graphics add pizzazz to the website, they do not add value for patients seeking to print only the meaningful information, such as directions to your office.
Below is an example that shows the difference between a printer-friendly web page and a web page not formatted to be printer friendly.
