How can I transfer saved Print Presets to a new computer?

How can I transfer saved Print Presets to a new computer?  Where are these presets saved.  There seem to be some common ones that are the same for all applications, but uniques ones for certain applications, such as Adobe InDesign.

I had the same question for Apple, called tech support and they said that "At this time there is no way to transfer preset printer settings." I was not to happy. The only thing I could think of is to do a time machine backup and when you setup your new computer load your time machine data and hopefully your printer settings will transfer. Apple also said they did not know if that would work.

Hope that helps.

Create the printer that the preset is associated with in the new mac os system,
then copy the file named
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.print.custompresets.plist
~ is your user home directory such as
/Users/DJDecay/Library/Preferences/com.apple.print.custompresets.plist

if that fails you can copy all of ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.print.*
and ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Print*
