<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/themes/oldstyle.css" media="print"> <!-- optional -->

You can also use the unpkg service as a CDN.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/gutenberg-css@0.3.0" media="print">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/gutenberg-css@0.3.0/dist/themes/oldstyle.min.css" media="print">

What does the framework do ?

Hide elements

To hide elements to be printed you can simply add the class no-print.

Force break page

Gutenberg provide to way break page, the class page-break will for to break before and page-break-after to break after.

Example:

<!-- The title will be on a new page -->
<h1 class="page-break">My title</h1>

<p class="page-break-after">I will break after this paragraph</p>
<!-- Break here, the next paragraph will be on a new page -->
<p>I am on a new page</p>

Not reformat links or acronym

If you do not want to reformat the links, acronym or abbreviation to show the full url or title, you can use the class no-reformat.

Force to print background

To force backgrounds to be printed (can be useful when you "print" a pdf), add this CSS (compatible with Safari and Chrome) :

-webkit-print-color-adjust: exact;
        print-color-adjust: exact;
