Print Screen and mail

I'm working on a web page that uses http://jqueryui.com/draggable/ . A customer can input text or an image which shows up on the screen, then they can drag it to any position in order to design a product. Something similar to the many design your own t-shirts sites on the web.

I need to capture what they have designed on the web page and I think the javascript <A HREF="javascript:window.print()">Click to Print This Page</A> would work if.....

Is it possible to programmatically print a screen and have it mailed to me?

check this jQuery plugin : http://www.jqueryscript.net/other/jQuery-Plugin-To-Print-Any-Part-Of-Your-Page-Print.html

else you can just create a dedicated stylesheet by setting media t print :  media="print"

<link href="path/to/styles.css" media="print" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

How does adding a stylesheet assist in creating a print page, image or pdf and have it mailed to me?
