Printing background colours in Chrome

I'm trying to print a PHP generated document in Chrome. On the browser it looks fine. But my printer will not print any coloured backgrounds. I know that Internet Explorer has an option to print background but Chrome does not. As the end user will print this off I do not want to find alternatives like a screen grab or save file, etc. I want to find a real solution to this.

How can I fix it?

It's not an exact duplicate: he added the vital detail that this is something he needs for end users, not himself. But I agree, it would be better to add that information to the original question, rather than re-asking the question. – Martha Mar 24 '10 at 18:09
@Martha If he has new information, he should simply edit his original question. – alex Mar 25 '10 at 13:25

Have you tried this Chrome extension?

Otherwise, you just answered your question yourself

... IE has an option to print background but chrome does not.

Fact that there is no option visible doesn't necessarily mean there is not a way to do it. – Gnoupi Mar 25 '10 at 13:38
