Convert web page to PDF, nicely

I saw about this service on Hacker News and I'm impressed. It can convert any article-like web page into a PDF. Not the first time we've seen that but this service really gets it right.

Here's example, when I print one of my own blog posts:

Blog post on Simple Print
Blog post on Simple Print. PDF download

Blog post via Firefox print to PDF
Regular print to PDF

Does that look scrumptious? It drops one of the images but it really gets the layout right.

I'm not sure this beats the neat integration that Pocket has but it certainly is a nice hack. Which reminds me, I really need to improve my print.css stylesheet.
