Of course I can! But...is there a way to make the secondary printer print overflow from the first? I'm building a photo booth and I would like for it to have 2 printers in order to minimize wait times. So, if the first printer is busy and receives another print command, can I make it automatically print to the second printer?

What you're looking for is printer pooling. This is common at school computer labs, etc.

For OS X: Mac OS X 10.6: Creating a printer pool

For Windows 7: How to Enable Printer Pooling on Windows 7?

I just googled these, so you can repeat the process if you need steps for another OS.

normally you can have two printers in network and in setup chose the one to print different jobs to. Automatic as you can get :IMO.
