We bought an older relative an iPad for ease of use in email and web browsing. He wants to be able to print things from it. He does not have wifi. What is the very easiest way to enable him to print emails and web articles?

Our older relative needed a new computer for his rural home. He has only dial-up and is very bad about maintaining computers so we got him an iPad with Verizon data service, which reaches where he lives. He wants to be able to print. All I see is AirPrint, which requires wifi, which he does not have.
How can we allow him to print? I imagine we have to add wifi to his house, but seeing as he is not technically competent and lives far away, we would need to make this as easy as humanly possible.
What printer and equipments works easily right out of the box? Are there any printers that print from an iPad that contain their own wifi? What is the easiest way to get this done?
