printers in AD

I have a network printer that has an IP and I usually just add the printer
via the printer wizard. I set it up by doing "Local printer attached to
this computer" then I "Create a new port" and select TCP/IP. Then I tell
the computer the IP address and everything is dandy. I was wondering if
there is a way to add a printer in AD that isn't directly shared off of a
computer. This way the computer would not have to be on for the printer to
work for other computers. How do you guys manage printers with IP addresses
rather than using a computer to share it? All comments are welcome. TIA.
