However, if your printer is not AirPrint-enabled, you can still use your existing printer to print from iPad or iPhone by taking advantage of a number of 3rd party softwares available for this purpose.
HandyPrint is one such application for Mac OSX that enables you to use non-AirPrint compatible printer from iPod/iPhone/iPad, running iOS 4.2 or above, via Mac.

There is no need to install any extra app on your iPod/iPhone/iPad; however, the Mac must remain turned on for the attached printer to be available to the iOS device.
