Vue mixin for paper printing html elements.




npm install vue-html-to-paper


yarn add vue-html-to-paper




import Vue from 'vue';
import VueHtmlToPaper from 'vue-html-to-paper';

const options = {
  name: '_blank',
  specs: [
  styles: [
  timeout: 1000, // default timeout before the print window appears
  autoClose: true, // if false, the window will not close after printing
  windowTitle: window.document.title, // override the window title

Vue.use(VueHtmlToPaper, options);

// or, using the defaults with no stylesheet

See API here.


    <!-- SOURCE -->
    <div id="printMe">
      <h1>Print me!</h1>
    <!-- OUTPUT -->
    <button @click="print"></button>

export default {
  data () {
    return {
      output: null
  methods: {
    async print () {
      // Pass the element id here
      await this.$htmlToPaper('printMe');

With local options

You can also override the global config by passing local options that will only take effect to a certain print context.

// local options are the same as the default global options
this.$htmlToPaper('printMe', { /* local options */ });


While the this plugin supports async await, the callback function is also available.

Use the callback function to be notified when printing has been completed (whether or not it was successful). The callback method is not required.


When using callback, be aware that there's now a 2nd parameter for local options. So the callback will be the 3rd parameter. Pass null as 2nd argument if you don't want to override the global options.

this.$htmlToPaper('printMe', null, () => {
  console.log('Printing completed or was cancelled!');


How to print in landscape

In the global option, you can pass a css with the following:

@media print {
  @page {
    size: landscape

Then, inject the custom css in the styles option like so:

const options = {
  styles: [
    './path/to/custom.css' // <- inject here

This can also be done by using the local option.
