The good news is: Every MikroTik device running RouterOS is able to make use of different VPN-methods (IPSEC, Openvpn[tcp only], SSTP, L2TP and so on).
If your only purpose is to connect multiple printers together you wont need that much speed going over your VPN - but if you are unsure what your demands are in the future i would go with the RB4011 since its outperforming almost every other SoHo Router and is able to make use of hardware encryption.

Restricting VPN access to ports/services or ip addresses is no problem, you could either go with routing rules (routing marks, or table-lookups) or just route specific destination addresses via VPN.
