    I can't speak authoritatively, but I don't think you can print the grid in
    Photoshop, but...

    Here are 2 other ways to do it-

    1. Create a new layer on top of all other layers. With the grid on as a
    guide, use the line tool to draw a grid on the new layer.
    2. Turn the grid on. Do a screen capture. Open the screen capture in PS and
    print out. the downside of this method is that it captures at 72 ppi which is
    really low res if you intend to have a quality print out.

    (PC- press the 'Print Screen' button on the keyboard. This copies a picture
    of the screen to the clipboard. Do File > New. When it asks you what
    dimensions, just click ok. PS measures the dimensions of the image on the
    clipboard and uses those as a default. Do Edit > Paste to insert the screen
    shot into the doc..... MAC- On the new iMacs do Shift+Command+4 and drag the
    mouse to define the area you want to capture. In PS, do File > New. Edit >
    Paste....on the MACs you can also do Shift+Command+3 to do a screen capture
    that automatically saves on image on your hard drive. In PS, do File > Open.
    Locate the file on the hard drive named Picture 1.)
