    If your printer is an HP they do have an app, HP ePrint, that works pretty well. I use it to print from my Note 2 over wifi.

    They also have an app called cloud print. I haven't tried it myself but it seems to have some good reviews.

    Cloud print requires that you use a printer that has been shared to Cloud and the host PC or server is up and running.

    I faced the same issue when I bought my tablet last year. Eventually settled on PrintHand a paid app but very reasonably. It supports a very wide range of printers. There is a free to test version so you can make sure it works before you purchase

    I use PrinterShare but it is more expensive than PrintHand; like PrintHand PrinterShare allow a trial to see if it works on your set up.

    If you do not have access to a Bluetooth or WiFi printer, using a Cloud enabled printer seems like the best option. Google Cloud Print is easy to use.

    You can also setup a shared printer on a lan network... but then you can just as well share what you want to print to a PC and print from there

    You don't need a special "Wifi printer" i.e. it can be any ordinary printer connected to a pc that is accessable via your home wifi network; your home network can consist of one pc with a wifi router attached.

    That is what I have; one pc has an ordinary printer attached, the printer is shared and the pc is attached to a wifi router. I just login to my home wifi from my Android and use PrinterShare to print to this ordinary printer.

    Please excuse me if you already knew this!

    I find this limitation to be pretty stupid. C'mon Samsung, be different from Apple!

    I just bought an HP Photosmart 7520 I believe (WiFi) and this printer can actually be setup with it's own email address ( so that ANY device can print to it so long as you know the address although it can be set to be more restrictive. Works pretty darn well. I can print docs or pics and it knows which is which and sends my pics to the tray with the photo paper in it. Very nice. ;)
