It's actually fairly trivial, I'm sure that you can get it. Step one would be to make a view, basically just a stylized view of the page that you'd want printed. That way you can make sure that the page to be printed is going to be fitted and formatted the way you like. Then I'd use jquery to actually display the label and bring up default printer dialog. here are some jquery printing options: http://www.jquery4u.com/plugins/10-jque ... e-options/

No problem, and don't forget you can always come back here with code if it's not doing what you expect it to.
