    Printers need to receive the data in a format that they understand, and that usually requires specific drivers loaded onto computers in order to do that. However, HP has several printers that are made specifically to work with iPods & iPads using AirPrint.

    Though you might have some other options. Check out the following links for some info that might work for you as one says you can also print using AirPrint to a non-wireless printer that is plugged into an Apple Airport Express via Ethernet. There also may be some apps that you can download to facilitate printing to other printers as well.

    Otherwise you'll have to get an AirPrint compatible printer:

    You would need a compatible ePrint/AirPrint printer in order to do that. See this website:

    Yes some wifi hp printers, but if you dont have on but have a mac you can buy printopia. When using air print on the ipad it connects to the mac and then prints from the printer.
