Hello and welcome, Gianugo,

An easier idea might be to get some network printers, i. e. printers 
with network cards in them.  Then, you can place the printers wherever 
you want, including beside a client if you wish, but they would still be 
"connected" to the K12 server through Ethernet.  This is how we have our 
printers set up at work, and I do the same at home.  It's great.
