If what you're trying to print is the contents of a canvas, and if you have
a PostScript printer, there is also a "postscript" method on Tkinter
canvases that may interest you. It just returns the postscript code
corresponding to the contents of the canvas.
And if you don't have a PostScript printer, there are many conversion
utilities that may convert the PostScript to almost any other format. See
for example the "convert" utility that's part of ImageMagick @
