VLan questions

I am looking to implement vlans on our network soon.  I thought of starting by segmenting:

management
servers
dhcp
printing
wireless

Anything else I should separate?  

If i'm not worried much about security, can I just allow the switches to be managed on any of the Vlans?

Do I need the dhcp server to be on the dhcp vlan?  I'm guessing so.  

Do I need the print server to be in the same vlan as the printers?  I 'm guessing not.  Is there any advantage one way or the other?

Any other useful tidbits on vlans that might be helpful to somebody just starting out?

Thanks!
