Cool stuff. Do you know if there are plans to release this functionality to older versions of Android through a support library?
There is limited support for printing in the support library via the PrintHelper class, which allows printing bitmaps. As far I've been able to tell though, this still only works in KitKit, as seen in the source here, where systemSupportsPrint only returns true for api level 19 (and above):
Apparently it's there so you could include the feature for an app that runs on KitKit but targets an older API level, where you would downgrade the feature when the app runs on an older device/sdk (at least that's the best explanation I could come across).
We are in the process of migrating a Compact Framework application to cross platform (ios, android and windows phone 8) in that project we have used Nice Label software to print label. As per Nice Label support, Nice label will not work in CP. Please provide me some reference to print labels in cross platform.

Is it possible to print without showing the user the print dialogue screen?
We are building a kiosk style app that will print stickers for visitors and we don't want them to have to select a printer. We would like to set the printer in a config file and the print job automatically goes there without user interaction.
