Which way do you want to print:
  windows ---------> unix ------> printer

or 2)
  unix ----------> windows --------> printer

In the first case the "cleanest" way is to use a 
Windows-Printer-Driver supporting your wishes. 

In both cases there may be some filters to be used on unix
(/etc/printcap  .... ) to do this. Or you can wirte some skripts to 
automatically modify the file to be printed before printing it.
But all this is "more unix, less samba"

Hope this helps a bit
