       By changing the media type of your css file you can make special adjusments for print, just add one more css file in addition to your current css and set media as print..

<link rel="stylesheet" href="my_print_css_file.css" type="text/css" media="print" />

It depends how important accuracy of layout is. If you need the layout to be exact then PDF is the only way. CSS is not good enough (yet!)

Another point that springs to mind is that the browsers often add "headers" and "footers" and these cannot be turned off by CSS, so you will get URLs, dates, times, page numbers etc across the tops and bottoms of the print outs.

 So you should give a try to CSS , and if the result is not good enough than we may try to use a kind of pdf class..
