How to print to a domain netowrk printer from iPad

Client just purchased a Sharp MX-3610N copier/printer
Network is a Small Business Server 2003 Domain Network TCP/IP
All users run Windows 7 64 and 32 bit machines
Client has 5 iPADs and wants to print to this new network printer
I know I can just purchase an app and use a PC connected to the printer.
Any other suggestions or maybe reliable app choice since there are a million print apps out there claiming to be number 1?

Thanks

You'll have to install software to a computer connected to the printer since you cannot install the printer drivers on the iPad.

Just to clarify, since that printer doesn't support cloud printing, you'll have to download an app, install the corresponding software on a Mac or PC, and use that computer as a printserver so that the iPad can print to the printer.

No drive install on iPAD yes that is known, using an app on a PC also know as noted on question.
