How to convert a blog post into a PDF for free

I wanted to share a cool free tool called Printer Friendly.  It’s super simple to use and allows you to convert a blog post into a PDF.  This is a fantastic way to help with your SEO by sharing your PDF’s into document sharing sites.  It’s also a great way to create content for giveaways and content downloads.  Content downloads are a fantastic way for growing a list.  I’ll be sharing some tips and diving into this in much more detail in the future.

I’ve made a quick video below which shows you how easy it is to do, and you can see for yourself what it looks like too.

You also have the ability to customise how your PDF looks.  You can delete blocks of text, choose whether to include images or not and change the font size.

Try it out for yourself here and start creating PDF’s in no time!

Let me know what you think and please do share this post if you found it useful.

    Hi Lilach,

    I found your post on Triberr and had to come over and read it. I’m always looking for different ways to share my content. 🙂 I have never heard of Printer Friendly before so thanks for introducing me to it.

    I’ve saved your post and will be checking it out this weekend. Thanks for sharing this and for your suggestions on how we can use it.

    Hope you’re having a great week.

    Hello Lilach

    I’ve been reading your posts around the interwebs for a long time and they are always useful. Thanks for the heads up on this handy little tool. I’ll be mentioning it in a Tuesday ToolBox Tip on my podcast.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many simple little free tools are out there that we’ve never heard of 🙂

      Hi Jon thanks so much for your comment and kind words, always nice to receive great feedback! (and connecting on LinkedIn).

      That’s cool,, will have to check out your podcast – feel free to share it in the comments so others can listen too 🙂

      Ha, yes, there are just so many of them lol

    Fascinating. You use to have to download an app that did this for you, and then the pesky Mac vs. the rest of the World thing would get in the way. It’s good that this exists now, almost 25 years after I needed it.

    Hello, Lilach!

    You might not know me but I know you… and from long that you’re one of the best bloggers. 🙂

    It is my first time though on your blog but I will be coming here often in the future!

    And I am glad to find this post from CoPromote; it really is something I needed but did not do the research yet.

    I need that to create something for me, so I am surely going to use it. 🙂

    Thank you! And see me often! 🙂

    Hi Lilach,

    I just found your blog because I was searching for ways to convert my blog post into a PDF. I have been doing this the hard way manually copying and pasting my content in a Word Document.

    I have never heard of Printer Friendly before. I bookmarked your blog post so I can watch the video and follow along when I have more time.

    I will definitely be using it the next time I am trying to create a content upgrade for one of my blog posts.

    Thanks for the share, you definitely made my life easier.


    • Lilach Bullock on 2017-03-27 at 11:45 am

      Thanks Susan, delighted you’ve found my article – hopefully it will save you a ton of time to focus on growing your business 😀

    I guess it is now possible to convert blog posts to ebooks if there are long and informative enough. Nice post.
