If you use the winddk, several examples of printer drivers are included plus all the build tools. You can use the closest one to your requirements and just mod it to suit.

Printer Driver

Try using Compuware (former Numega) Driver Suite or Studio,
it comes together with the famous SoftIce debugger, features a C++ framework and other goodies. Another option would be BSquare's WinDK.
With MS DDK, WinDK and Jungo's WinDriver you will be writing a driver, if you use Jungo's KernelDriver or BSquare's WinRT you could avoid it and implement driver functionality in your application - slower and clumsier than an outgrown driver but easier to debug and develop.
Most of these products have example printer drivers.
By the way, without SoftIce you will need a second computer for the debugging!

Regards,
