Answer

Most of what I found in a quick check (search the Internet using favorite search engine) agrees that you need a Screenshot.

 

Create a screenshot > save that data to a file > send the saved file to the printer.

 

There might be "an app for that", of course.

See "Google Play Store" to see if anyone was kind enough to write an application for this.

 

Discussion and Examples

 

A quick search on the subject indicates it is not the printer brand or printer model that dictates the process.

Instead, the actual steps necessary to trap and then transfer the data into a printer job depend on your device and Operating System.  The "Screenshot" method is pretty standard, I think.

 

Everything I found does assume you have previously connected a printer to your network, you are familiar with your device and that you generally understand how to print from your device to your printer.  Standard setup in other words.
