Airprinting with multiple airprinters on network

Hello all,

I have one HP p1606dn airprinter installed and in use in the school district I work for. We will be adding 7 more across the district in various locations. My question is this: Is there a way to distinguish between the printers on the ipad when attempting to print something. When printing to the installed printer from an ipad currently, it is listed as the make and model of the printer. If I add more of these printers, same make and model, will the ipad show 8 printers to print to with the same name?

To be clear, the ipad does not show the Host Name of the printer, it shows HP Laserjet Professional P1606dn.

I welcome your input and comments.


Most AirPrint enabled printers allow the admin to set the display name
