No, he does not want the orders faxed.

Fax just happens to be the word in his vocabulary for "get the thing 
over the line to a piece of paper here without me having to touch any 
friggin computers"

You don't have to send anything. No emails, no faxes, no postcards. Just 

On the website, orders go to a database or flat files or something.

Then install a tiny humble headless linux box at the shop. Have a cron 
job poll any new orders from the web server and print them.
