Which printer are you using? Are you sure it supports AirPrint? Have you tried the AirPrint Setup and Troubleshooting at – johankj Dec 24 '12 at 0:16
Its an HP wireless printer – Jacob H Dec 24 '12 at 0:22
Today's HP printers say that they support AirPrint. Older ones, even wireless ones, don't. – GEdgar Dec 24 '12 at 0:26

If your printer doesnt specifically support AirPlay try an app called Printopia.
