Q. Can I print Notation with Apple's GarageBand’s ?

For GB1 For GB2 For GB3
A. Unfortunately, you can not in these early versions of GarageBand, they offer no print function. (see later versions in which you can) You can mess with the rather laborious process of taking Screen Shots of the Notation Pane and then stitching them together in an application that supports images. It's not fun.

Another possible option is to downlaod the MIDIO plugin and output your software track to notation software which does allow you to print.

If you decide to upgrade to Logic Express, your GB files will open in it without change, and you can print notation from Logic Express.

GarageBand '08 (And Later) finally offers a print function. Though not as advanced as that of the Logic series, it is functional, and a way to get your track's score printed out on paper. Open the track editor for the software track you intend to print. Click the Note icon (in GB4) or the Score button (in GB5) to display notation view, and choose Print from the File menu.
