Thanks for joining MySwissAlps Alok!
The pass you need is the Swiss Travel Pass (not the Swiss Pass, which is for residents). You'll find purchase options and prices here: myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/ price. The basic price in Swiss francs won't change between now and June, but the price in other currencies may increase or decrease due to exchange rates. Also there may or may not be promotions you can take advantage of. The linked page as well as this forum keeps you informed about that.
Yes, you can order a pass that can be printed at home. The PDF document you'll receive needs to be printed and it's the paper that must be presented on request once on board. The PDF is a good backup just in case, so you can print it again if needed. The easiest way to order is to go to the web shop of the Federal Railways at www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the pass within 1-3 business days (no delivery fees), so you can print it at home.
