Removing Printing Privileges?

I am running Windows Server 2003 with Active Directory. I have between 400-500 users that I manage through Active Directory. My boss wants a certain group of users to not be able to print to any of our 9 shared printers company wide. So I opened up my "Printers and Faxes", right clicked on one of the printers, selected "Properties", then the "Security" tab. I then selected "Add" and searched my domain for one of the users I need to remove printing privileges from, once the name was selected I clicked OK. I then placed a check mark beside "Print" in the "Deny" Column. My problem is that it removes privileges to print to this printer ONLY on the local machine. If I go to another computer and try to print while logged in with this user I am able to print. Is there a way for me to deny printing capabilites to these printers no matter what computer these users are logged on to in the domain?? Thanks ahead of time for any responses!
