Here is a script that I wrote a long, long time ago in KiXtart..  Should be easily portable to VBS or PowerShell..

What is good about this is that you can use an INI (settings) file, so that if the user logs into another TS, they get the same printer.

Hello there!
If you set the printer in the Terminal Server session , the printer will be remembered on the next log on (with the same user).
if you talking about a lot of Session with different users , the way is GPO , you can try 2 ways:
1- users configuration --> windows setting ---> deployed printer
2- users configuration --> windows setting ---> scripts (logon)

good luck!!
