When Microsoft first introduced Office for iPad, a printing option was the main thing missing from the original release of the applications. There was a workaround that included having to print the documents from your OneDrive account accessed through the Safari browser, but thankfully, that workaround is no longer necessary.
All you need to have is an AirPrintTM printer which your iPad can recognize to print from Word, Excel or PowerPoint for iPad.

Excel for iPad gives you the most printing options. You can select the orientation and which sheets and workbooks you want printed. You can also set the size of the paper you want the spreadsheet printed on.
PowerPoint for iPad offers SmartGuides which can help you to effortlessly align all of your images and textboxes throughout your slideshow so that they look very professional when printed.
