According to Berger and Bradford's Index of Characters in Early Modern
English Drama,

Printers appear in

The Return from Parnassus (1603)
Time Vindicated (Jonson, 1623)
as well as the Jonson play cited by Ben Annis above

Stationers appear in

The Return from Parnassus (1603) -- the same character as above?
The Staple of News (Jonson,1626)
