There's clearly described what you have to do.
Ensure that the CUPS daemon is running and added to the /etc/rc.conf
# /etc/rc.d/cups start
File: /etc/rc.conf
DAEMONS=(... cups crond ...)

Now plug in the USB printer and turn it on. The printer will whirl,
pause, then whirl once more as the firmware is uploaded. Now remove the
usblp module: 
# rmmod usblp
Note: The usblp module must be removed after the firmware is loaded to
the printer, and before any printing job is submitted.
As I understand it there is no way to automatize this.
