The ability to print from a website is a local operating system capability, built into the browser.  There is nothing special that PHP can do to help or hinder the process.

Javascript can be used to invoke the built-in browser support for printing, but again, printing will always require the user to take action.

For example, here is a simple button inside an anchor tag with some javascript.

<a href="#" media="all" onclick="window.print();return false;"><button type="button">Print</button></a>


You can use media queries in your css to style a page for printing by adding a style section like this:

@media print {
    /* styles here */

Typically people will hide things like menus, footers, nav, sidebars etc.  You also might want to set a margin around the content, since typically printers have that constraint,  so you might have something like this:

@media print {
    header, footer {
        display: none;

Here is a pretty good sitepoint article that goes into much more detail.
