shop=printer_service sounds nice. I'm guessing the ink shops also sell
paper and I guess "printer" is ambiguous.

Its not very clear that a "printer service" shop sells ink cartridges,
but that can be explained in the description or on the wiki etc.

With craft=printer you mean a print shop? Posters, books, etc. 

I see existing shop=printshop (66 uses), craft=printshop ( 10 uses),
craft=print_shop (119) and craft=print (6 uses) and there is also 1
craft=print_finishers, whatever that is.

Maybe these could be merged into something
