// $doc->setPrinceOptions($prince_options);
// $prince_options->setMedia("screen");                                // use screen styles instead of print styles
// $prince_options->setBaseurl("");                    // pretend URL when using document_content

$create_response = $docraptor->createDoc($doc);
