VLAN configuration for shared devices

I have an HP V1910 switch which I would like to configure to allow the following:

I have a site with 8 users. I have two 3G routers caapabile of supporting 4 users each. I would like to create a mini network using the V1910 switch where each 3G router is on its own VLAN and then have another VLAN where a shared printer can sit. Users will be hard-wired into a port on one of the two VLANS (four users in each). The fifth port in each VLAN has the 3G router in  it.

I have successfully setup the two VLANS and users can use the 3G router to connect to the internet. My problem is I'm not sure how to setup the shared printer VLAN (or if it is possible). I note in the documentation that a port can have more than one VLAN on it so wondered if it is a case of selecting the port that the printer is on and allocating it its own VLAN and also assign the other two VLANs to that port. On trying this I couldn't access the printer (via IP).

Is there a better way to setup this network? Any advice would be appreciated.
