"PrinterJob.getPrinterJob()" returns the default printer. If you want to select which printer to use, use PrinterJob.lookupPrintServices(). It returns a list of all available printers, from which you can choose the correct one.

Ned Him,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a
list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our
FAQ section here.
In particular please see:

Abbreviations such as "u" or "ur" in
place of "you" and "you are" or "you're" confound language translation software making
it hard for our non-English speaking members to read your posts.
"plz" is not a word in the English language.

Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
