I need to know where the "printer profiles" are stored.

I'm not referring to the drivers or any of that, what I'm referring to is when you add a printer, you can define different profiles (IE paper size, orientation, etc) and save the commonly used ones.

If anybody knows where these files are stored, please help!

My guess is ~/Library/Preferences/<printername>.plist
