no, but we do have a good CSS primer on print styles that just
appeared on the site:

Kissing Print Versions of Pages Goodbye

sounds like either option would be just as easy, then, if all you
have to do is pipe the pages into a new template...

as it is, with the printable versions of pages on the evolt.org site,
i've found that people don't often use the print link, they tend to
print the default page from the browser.... meaning a print CSS file
would be a good cover on top of a print template...
