Just booked rail tickets from Lausanne to Geneva to Lyon for mid June on Then a warning popped up saying that I should not purchase the tickets if I could not print the sncf tickets in France, so of course I didn’t complete the purchase. Kind of a silly question but how do I purchase and print a ticket to travel to Lyon? Is there an sncf office/kiosk in the Geneva train station? Thank you for any help!

Welcome to MySwissAlps Sgammage!

That's warning is weird. I thought it was a thing of the past to offer that as the only option. It might have something to do with the strikes in France. I also noticed less tickets being available on various sites. You don't get the warning for a ticket from Geneva to Lyon, so I suppose there is a machine in Geneva but I can't confirm.

You can try other websites that normally offer print at home, they are listed here: aintickets/france/pric e. You can also buy a ticket at the staffed ticket desk in either Lausanne or Geneva, but you'd probably pay a CHF 10 additional service fee ("SBB Auftragspauschale International"). Online would be cheaper and more convenient.
