This can be done via login script on the particular GPO.

See this other popular EE question for suggestions on how to do this:

make a file, like printer.bat (edit with notepad).

put this in it:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /c\\server /m "AGFA-AccuSet v52.3" /h "Intel" /v "Windows 2000" /f %windir%\inf\ntprint.inf

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Test Printer" /c\\SERVER /f "%windir%\inf\ntprint.inf" /r "lpt1:" /m "AGFA-AccuSet v52.3"

change what you need:

\\server = server name on which the shared printer is connected
AGFA-AccuSet v52.3 = exact printer name
etc
