It looks like the models they have on apple.com but when I try to print off my iPad it says it can't find any printers.

No, that printer is not an Air-Print compatible printer.

Printers need to receive the data in a format that they understand, and that usually requires specific drivers loaded onto computers in order to do that. However, HP has several printers that are made specifically to work with iPods & iPads, .

Though you might have some other options. Check out the following links for some info that might work for you as one says you can also print using AirPrint to a non-wireless printer that is plugged into an Apple Airport Express via Ethernet.

Otherwise you'll have to get an AirPrint compatible printer:

You would need a compatible ePrint/AirPrint printer in order to do that. See this website:

Here is a list of compatible printers currently:
AirPrint-enabled printers
HP Envy e-All-in-One series (D410a)
HP Photosmart Plus e-AiO (B210a)
HP Photosmart Premium e-AiO (C310a)
HP Photosmart Premium Fax e-AiO (C410a)
HP Photosmart e-AiO (D110)
HP Photosmart eStation (C510)
HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf Multifunction Printer
HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fn Color Multifunction Printer
HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw Color Multifunction Printer
HP LaserJet Pro CP1525n Color Printer
HP LaserJet Pro CP1525nw Color Printer
HP Officejet 6500A e-AiO
HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-AiO
HP Officejet 7500A Wide Format e-AiO
HP Officejet Pro 8500A e-AiO
HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-AiO

Without one of those printers, you may not be able to print like you want.

Go to the app store and look up HP. There is an app to print photos and some other files to hp wireless printers. It is real. I am still learning how it all works.
If you search "print" there are many other apps to assist printing, some have a real sample to prove they will work, then you can buy the full version
