You can put the page in frames...  this way only the active frame is printed...  or you can put the images in layers.  It can be unpredictable how layers get printed though.  You may have to play with that for a while...  OR, you can make a downloadable version for printing, like a pdf or doc file or something like that... this way you have better control of how the print looks.

Good luck!

A very simple solution would be:

Create the images as animated GIF's. The first frame is blank, and the second is the image that shows on the page. Make sure that the image does not loop.

This way, when printing, the first image is printed.

Have a nice day :-)

Further, set the time that the first frame appears to 1/100 of a second.
