    Hi and welcome to the forum! :)

    Printers that are Air Print compatible can print via a wireless connection on the same Wi-Fi network w/o additional software - unfortunately, your HP printer does not seem to be on the list offering this Apple option - check HERE - Air Print for further information - sorry!

    Now there are plenty of other third party options to provide 'wireless printing' to a non-Air Print device - the one that I use on my Canon Pixma printer is called FingerPrint - check HERE for further details - cost is $10 and you'll need to download a small program to your computer only; both the computer/printer & the iPad will need to be on the same Wi-Fi network - others may 'chime in' w/ other options - good luck and let us know your results!

    I initially looked into the Lantronix xPrintserver for $150.00 (149.95 US) but the fact that it's only preordered right now and functionally expensive vaporware, led me to look elsewhere. Just installed FingerPrint by Collobos Software for $9.99 and it works beautifully. Printed from my iPhone and iPad with no problem scaling graphics or text so far. Hope that works for you.

    Yeah you'll need to either get a different air print compatible printer or install a print app. I use Printer pro for around $6 I think and it works very well for me. The only glitch is Bluetooth needs to be turned off to print quickly, otherwise it's slow.
