The background colour is forced to white to avoid using up all your
ink/toner if you have a dark theme, but the foreground (eg text)
colours are not changed since you might *want* the ones chosen.  Of
course that may get you white text on a white background.

The solution is to select a theme with a light background to print.
There is an enhancement proposal to have a specific theme for
printing, but "somebody" has to implement it.

Thats in the system print dialog (or at least the GTK one) so we don't
control what options it presents.  I guess it depends on the print
driver if specific pages can be selected.
