Lexmark Printer Use When Not Logged In

I would like to use my Lexmark printer when I am not logged in but the
software seems to require that you are logged in as someone on the computer.
Where other printers just use a simple driver that runs through the
computers processes regardless, the Lexmark printers use a more user input
friendly system that speaks and everything. I emailed Lexmark and they just
gave some generic uninformed answer back. Is there something that I could
do that would allow me to use this printer from another computer on the
network without being logged into that computer?

Quickest solution is to purchase a print server for your network.
