printing an HTML is not always easy (especially pagination) even with a good media specific CSS. https://github.com/miyako/4d-component-wkhtmltopdf besides, printing is a blocking process (only 1 job at a time) and not thread safe so I think it is preferable to generate PDF by code than to

We use GhostScript via LEP to convert the file from a PDF to a PCL document. Afterwards we open a connection to the printer using TCP commands and send with TCP_SendBlob. We do many PDFs this way and it works great. Cons are that it has to be an IP-configured printer. Pros are that it's silent.
