There should be an "Advanced" button where you can add different printer
Or rather, there is if you first:
1. Open System Preferences
2. Select Printers & Fax
3. Click the "+" sign in order to start the adding process
4. With this pane open, Cntrl + Click the menu bar to "Customize Toolbar"
5. Drag the "Advanced" button onto the menu bar

the vexation of thinking.
