    To print from an iPad you need AirPrint capable printers. Here is an Apple link to explain things. It includes a list of AirPrint capable printers. Your printer is not on the list. You would have to use a third party app such as Printer Pro as a bridge between your iPads and the printer. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/printer-pro-print-documents/id393313223?mt=8

    If you search the App Store for printer, you will find many such apps.
