I've been looking for a way to do this for quite a while with no success so far so I've decided to ask here.

I want to be able to make a stylized map with just mainly street such as this: https://www.mapiful.com/inspiration/london-6/

For printing purposes. Is there any website or tutorial I can follow to do this?

Assuming you don't want to use the create your own option on that website...

There is a collection of tools on the wiki page OSM on Paper although it isn't necessarily complete or up to date.

Mapbox studio is said to allow fairly extensive customisation, but there is a five print limit on the free tier and you will be expected to pay if it is for commercial use.

For a one-off, your best approach might be to get an SVG export of your area of interest from a suitable extract service and customise/tweak the line styles in that until you are pleased with the result. Bbbike's extract service has some styles that may be of use if you hide the labels and simplify the colour scheme. If you have used Inkscape or another piece of vector graphics software I would suggest trying this approach first.

For this sort of thing I would suggest QGIS (either using geojson from overpass-turbo or Geofabrik shapefiles) and Maperitive would be appropriate tools without a steep learning curve.
