What is Print Media as opposed to Digital Screens?

Print Media, is really just that... Anything in print. So a newspaper, magazine, flyer, or just a piece a paper out of your printer would be Print Media. There may be times you want your website to format quite differently if a visitor were to print a page off the site. Onscreen it may be a bigger font and/or in color and have lots of images, either in the foreground or part of the background, but printing, you don't want the user to feel that ink or paper is being wasted, and you probably don't need the images printed, so you change the CSS for printing to print only want the user is going to want/need.
Keep Coding! :)
