IMHO this is not a good tag, because “printer” can mean a machine or a person, and amenity doesn’t provide context.

For the person/profession, “craft=printer” seems better, for the service I’d use shop=printing_service or sth. similar and less ambiguous. Shop should be used for businesses offering products or services.
