Thoughts on the CSS print media query

April 30, 2023 | Tips

Well... Hello there.

Hope you're doing well so far. 😁

Today I want to talk about the CSS print media query. Why? Well... A few days ago I had a conversation with a good friend of mine. (Link to her) 

She was talking about the CSS print media query, which is commonly used to control the styling of printed web pages.

I mean... Sometimes, certain parts simply aren't needed or require additional emphasis and de-emphasis.

All good for now. Everything seems pretty logical.

But then a thought popped out. Well... Since PDF exports of web pages also work via the printing feature, this media query is also responsible for styling this export.

This seems kinda logical if you phrase it like that, but that thought personally hasn't occurred in my mind.

I think, I don't have to go over the different types of applications this has... I mean. Just for documentation purposes on online wikis alone, this is super useful.

So yeah... I just wanted to share this little thought with y'all since I/we didn't really think about this at first.

See ya
