When it comes to printing from the iPad, you basically have three options:
1. Buy an AirPrint capable printer.  A list of AirPrint printers can be found on this Apple support page.
2. Use a computer program that will allow the iPad to connect to a printer connected to your computer.
3. If you have a wireless printer that is not AirPrint capable, you can buy an app for the iPad that should allow it to connect to a wireless printer on the same network.

Ultimately, the best option for you really depends on what printer you have.  If you don’t have a wireless printer, you may need to buy software for your computer (option #2).  The downside of this option is your computer would need to be ON anytime you wanted to print.
