I'm looking for a way to save articles for later, like with Instapaper or ReadItLater, but in a way they can easily be printed in batch (e.g. select the last dozen and hit print, and it would then archive them). I don't mind if it's one of those services with some third-party tool, or a completely different service.

Goes Google Cloud Print not fit your use case? You need to be using Chrome but you can remotely print to a specific printer. Rather than saving individually and selecting batches you'd be individually sending items to print however. – Ben Brocka Jan 2 '12 at 19:59
It's really the batching up that I'm after. So I could save files with a bookmarklet/extension and just print every recent article with one click. – mahemoff Jan 2 '12 at 22:50

Readability is a wonderful app that lets you save a page and present it now or later in a readable and printable format for mobile or desktop. You can also send articles directly to services like Kindle.

Readability is available for desktop via browser plug ins and will soon be released on iOS.

Thanks, it looks really good actually, though what I'm really after is printing off a whole lot at once, and it will then mark them as read/archived. I think printing articles individually is too much overhead. I've updated the question to reflect this. – mahemoff Dec 31 '11 at 22:44

Answering my own question, one such service is http://joliprint.com/, but it's fairly basic, it just generates PDFs on demand and doesn't keep a queue or mobile app. (It also has some Instapaper integration, but basic.)
