    Hi sally.

    What os is on your pad?  For it to print, it needs ios4.2 or higher. 

     

    If you have that ios or better, and if you have an airprint enabled printer on the same wireless network, you should be good to go.  The print icon is usually embedded within an output icon.  For example, in safari( this screen), the print icon is up just to the left of the address bar.  Looks like a rectangle with an arrow thru it?

    How do I find out what ios I have? And I know what the print icon looks like because my husband has it on his Ipad2, and I do not have that icon on mine.

    Also the icon I have where my husbands print icon is, it is a +sign, and it does not give me a option to print, it says add bookmark, Add to home screen, and Mail link to this page.

    Go to Settings/General/About/Version for the iOS version.  Have you tried ressetting your iPad by pressing and holding both the home and sleep buttons at the same time until the apple symbol appears (ignoring the slider to turn off)?

    Wow, that's really old.  You must upgrade your operating system in order to use AirPrint.

    Plug your iPad into your computer that you regularly use for syncing.  On the summary pane of iTunes, click on Check for software updates, and you should see a message telling you what to do next.
