Excellent question - I've been struggling with this too since there are things that I find on-line that I'd like to be able to send to my wireless printer from my Nook.

I've had luck with the printershare app, which is actually available in the app store, surprisingly enough. It does let me discover and print to wireless printers.

I'm using PrinterShare on my tablet and it works great with my HP All in One wireles printer. Beware though, that the printer drivers themselves are from a 3rd party and there are some printers that aren't compatible. I was able to try the free trial version from the Android market before I bought the premium key.

I started using Print Share on my Droid and loved it. So when it became available on my tablet, I had to have it. I have had good success. No prob at all and very easy to navigate.

Well, how do you print a webpage without having to type the URL in?
Well I don't use Print Share, I have Cloud Print loaded on my nook, but it may work the same. When I get to a page I want to print, I go to the menu->more->share. Then it brings up a window with all the different ways I can share, Cloud Print being one of them. Maybe Print Share works the same way...

I am using Dolphin as a browser with PrintShare, so this is one way.
1. Open the web page you want to print.
2. Tap the "Menu" button
3. Tap "More" button
4. Tap "Share Page"
5. Select PrinterShare
6. Tap "Print" at the bottom of the displayed page
7. Look over the rendered pages and tap either "Print" or "Options"
8. Follow the printing options like any other App or Program
Remember, you must have first setup your Near Print via Wi-Fi or signed into their network if you are not using Wi-Fi. Hope this is useful to you.

Update on using PrinterShare with the native Nook Mail App: no way to accomplish it! However, I simply accessed my e-mail from the Dolphin Web Browser and printed it via the "Share" function and PrinterShare. Works fine.

Reisnice: If you are using the near print option which is a local printer accessed via Wi-Fi your $4.95 purchase price is what they call a "premium key" and it is all you need for unlimited printing. There is no monthly charge for this type of use. Some may want or need to access printers via the Internet so you can pay a monthly fee that will allow utilizing their servers to access the printer you are targeting. I understand that there is a variation to the monthly fee arrangement that will allow printing 20 pages each month for either a lesser charge or no charge. However, I suspect that most of us are wanting to print web content or documents from our Nook to a local printer (most likely our own printer) that is a Wi-Fi enabled printer. For that, all you need to do is purchase the App and set it up. I will confirm that I have printed web content, various documents and photos via this App. It works and is worth your "risking" $4.95 to try.

If you decide to purchase this App please post your impression/experience here so we can all benefit.
I purchased Printershare early on and have had nothing but positive experiences with it. It works fine with my wireless HP printer and it's what I also used for my gmail account.

"The only reason that I'm not ecstatic is that the printer driver it uses (HP 4795) gives shadows to all the lines and letters, so they appear pretty fuzzy. Not something I would print a resume with, but it lets me print, which has been one of the big shortcomings of my NT." Reisnice
The next time you print try this:
1. Select a document for printing
2. Select "Options"
3. Select "Printout Mode"
4. Select Draft/Normal/High Quality
If your can not find a setting that fixes your printout quality let them know at their web-site. I have found that on my HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One that printing MS Word documents in "Photo (Color cartridge, on photo paper)" produces very acceptable result. I use "Normal" most of the time and the text is well formed but somewhat light (grey).
Hope this helps.
