We have windows 2008 print server, it is not clustered. We need a method to back it up.
I do not know what needs to be backed up; whole machine at the block level, or file back up,or a mixture of block level and printbrm tool.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

You can use Windows Backup, here is a Technet article with steps to enable the feature and steps on how to perform a full backup of your server.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770266(v=ws.10).aspx

Windows Server Backup uses Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and block-level backup technology to back up and recover your operating system, files and folders, and volumes. After the first full backup is created, you can configure Windows Server Backup to automatically run incremental backups by saving only the data that has changed since the last backup. Even if you choose to always perform full backups, your backup will take less time than it did in earlier versions of Windows.
