HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default\AddIns\RDPDR\RedirectDefaultPrinterOnly needs to be set to 1 (DWORD).

This reg change is done on the server.  If you do it then all people logging on will only be able to see thier default printer, thats it.
There is also a secondary reg edit to do on a client machine which does it on a machine by machine basis. I didnt post that option because you were looking for a server solution.
