Check out Spiceworks for monitoring your printers and getting alerts.  It is a free program that allows you manage devices on your network including printers, computers, servers, network equipment, routers, etc.  It has a decent dashboard where you can see all your devices in one place.  They do have many ads within the program, but what do you expect for free.  They also have an ad free version which you can inquire about.  There are paid monitoring tools as well from AVG (aka Level Platforms) and N-able which you can review as well.
