It rather depends on what you want to do. The easiest way, assuming that you're using a desktop PC, is to get the area that you want to print on screen at the right scale, and then select your web browser's "print" or "print preview" function.

There's also an "export" tab at the top of the main map view. You can select "Map Image" there and select the area that you want via "Manually select a different area" - left click on the map and drag to select the area. You can later change the area by dragging the corners or sides.

Finally, if you want to do something more complicated, there are various third-party services available. Have a look at the answers to this question.
