How do I stop the contents of a gridview splitting across pages when printing?

I have a .net gridview which has cells that contain multiple lines of data.  When the gridview contains a number of rows and I go to print the gridview, where the page ends the row splits half on to the first page and half on to the next.  In this solution the print out is a faxed food order so the item that has its information split regularly gets messed up.

I am hoping either there is simple an attribute I can set or if that's not possible at least something which inserts after a set number of rows which will force a page split.

OK, I was hoping there was a simple attribute or strategy for making sure the rows weren't wrapped but I understand this might not be possible, thanks for the suggestion.

The solution used in practice was to put a tail message on the end of the printed pages cautioning the reader to be aware that tables can split across pages.
