Print No Dialog

Hi Jacqueline,

I tried excluding the "with dialog" for open print.  Doesn't work
with out bringing up "Preview" first.

"Print this card" creates a .pdf file, and automatically
opens "Preview".  I want to skip that step entirely and
just have the card go directly to the printer without stopping.

Any other ideas?
