That only works in two contexts:

1) they only site on which they ever want to use the print function is 
   your site; or
2) your web page isn't really a web page but is really a special purpose

In other cases, in content print buttons create a more difficult cognitive
problem because people have to understand a much deeper abstraction of a
print button to be able to find it on a page regardless of how the
designer chose to present it, rather than learning just once how to use
their browser's standard print function.
