PrintFriendly and PDFs since 2009

We've been helping people create printer-friendly versions of web pages and convert them to PDF files for free for well over a decade. We're the best at not only removing ads from web pages, but also removing navigation and other elements, so you can print a clean web page.  Now, we help users upload all sorts of files and convert them to and from PDF online.

You can convert PDF documents to files like Word, Excel, and JPG, or convert any of those file types to PDF. We're here to make converting and editing content easy, whether it's an online Word document or converting a JPG to PDF, we've got you covered.

Our PDF Reader: Simplicity Perfected

Our online PDF viewer works just like downloadable software like Adobe Acrobat Reader, Foxit PDF Reader, or Nitro Reader. You can scroll through pages, search for specific words within the text, highlight text passages that you'd like to remember, and use a variety of advanced features. Our reader also acts as a PDF editor and allows you to easily edit, annotate PDFs, and add digital signatures to PDF files, Word documents, and PowerPoint presentations.

Plus, we offer unmatched accessibility, with compatibility across multiple platforms - be it Windows, Mac, or mobile devices. After you're done editing, you can convert your PDF file to other file types, compress your PDF file, or share it with a colleague or friend.
