Yes, it is ...

Look at SIIG Brand...

If you have new computer, you can get USB to Parallel as well.

If you bought a new computer i think it hasn't isa port. So i recommend to use pci not usb. Becouse Pci bus have more irq. In advance you can use more than one lpt ports with irq sharing. But usb devices aren't so useful.

If you check out Pricewatch, under I/O - Controllers, you will find lots of parallel port ISA or PCI cards for sale. Some PCI versions for $8.
