I don't understand how the use or not of MULE affects whether or not
you'd run the activemq broker as a windows service.

You'd wrap up the thing that prints messages as using CMS or NMS to
consume messages - so it'd pull messages from the ActiveMQ broker's
queue and print them - or sending a failure message if it couldn't
print (e.g. out of paper).
