How can I reprint a recently printed document?

Hello all, I have just tried printing a coupon from Disney's site, which is redirected to coupon.com, and it never sent to my printer. When I tried to resend it, the coupon wouldn't print again because there is a limit on how many can be printed.

I reinstalled my printer and it is working again but is there a way I can go into my print history and reprint a file that was recently printed? The actual file is not on my computer as it is printed through the internet.

Thanks in advance.

what about looking at the browsers' history? Don't know if that will totally help, but is a start.

No, the browser just sends the file to the printer.

What type of printer do you have?

I can open System Preferences, then Print & Fax, then select my printer in the list on the left. Click Open Print Queue. In the Menu Bar, go to Jobs and click Show Completed Jobs. From there, you can select the print job and reprint it.

I tried it but to fix my printer I had to remove it from the list of printers then add it again which cleared the queue.

Probably no help now, but in future anything like this, dont select the printer itself, in the print dialogue select preview, which will open it as a pdf. Then you can save it before printing.
I've done this with boarding passes for flights, some airlines only let you print your boarding pass once which is a problem if say the printer screws it up.
