It would be helpful if you could clarify what you mean by 
"printing", but in your subsequent remarks, I suspect that you 
are exporting Mathematica graphics as EPS files and then inserting
them into other documents with other tools.  If downloading the fonts
to the printer is inconvenient, and you are willing to live with 
somewhat bloated EPS files, you may want to consider using the
emmathfnt utility on MathSource.

There is a snippet of code that is included with the toolkit that 
allows you to call a Mathematica function which does the font
embedding automatically.
