I dont know what switch's you are using, but an access-list would work fine. set it up for a range or if you network is set up in manageable segments deny them.

Why can't you add the printers to the Server? For you to control the printers you must have the printer installed. Right click the printer to view the security to add the permissions. You add the permissons just like a file or folder.

Maybe this will help you out a little. I have a HP 4250n at my office which I have the software installed on our print server for easy control over the printer.
