The ocgcolorlinks option to hyperref will let you have colorful links on the screen that are black (or more generally, the textcolor) when printed.

Is there a way to have coloured hyperref hyperlinks in the PDF, but have them print "as if" they were black? (yes there is!)

I'm wondering if there is a way to do similar tricks with other applications of color in LaTeX? For instance, I have in mind \pagecolor and \color.

tl;dr:

Is it possible to render a PDF in sepia tones? ... but have it print in black and white?

Here's a useable work-around for the exact use case I had in mind, following answer from automatically inject code into preamble in cascading manner.

spdflatex

Make this executable.

#!/bin/bash

pdflatex -jobname=$1 \\RequirePackage{sepia} \\input{$1}

sepia.sty

Save this in ~/texmf/tex/latex/mystyles/

\RequirePackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\definecolor{fondpaille}{cmyk}{0,0,0.1,0}    
\pagecolor{fondpaille!90!black}
\AtBeginDocument{\color{Sepia}}

Compile files with spdflatex for sepia tones, pdflatex for b/w.
