  2. Printer friendly functionality is more a feature of your theme and it's stylesheet than Gravity Forms itself. Forms are embedded on pages and posts within your site and those pages and posts are styled and controlled by your theme.

    There is also a service called PrintFriendly that supposedly automates this for you. I've never used it but they do have a WordPress plugin available which you can find here:
