From the Chrome menu options in the upper-right corner next to your profile picture, select “Print.”

4. Adjust the Print Settings

Using the “Destination” drop-down menu, select the option to “Save as PDF.”

Under the section for  “More settings”: 

  • Adjust Margins to “None.”  

  • Set the scale to “Custom” then type in “87.”
