Website to PDF, what’s the best solution?

I have used the PrintPDF add-on for Firefox in order to save websites as PDF for offline reading, the problem is the PDF file created does not maintain the look of the page on the site which in turn creates extra unnecessary pages on the PDF file, instead it moves many of the icons, images and text around I’m assuming to accommodate the size of the page. I was hoping there was a way to get the PDF to look as much as the website page does when converting it.

Any suggestions? I can install any PDF conversion programs to this Po as I don’t have access so I was hoping for either a better Firefox add-on, a portable program (no need to install on PC) or maybe changing some settings that can help correct or minimize the problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

You could try SnagIt, it will export in .PDF and you can capture the entire webpage.

If you have a mobile device, I would also look at Instapaper.

I have tried snagit before, didn't know about the pdf feature. $50 is a bit much for my current budget but I will keep it in mind. Instapaper seems to require Internet in most cases. I am kinda Internet-less at home for the moment.

Thanks for the suggestions though.
