Network Printer:
Instead of installing printer drivers in each and every machine physically, simply we can access print server in that simply we can double click on the printer, which one we need use.

Shared Printer:
In this printer is physically connected to the computer, if your team member want to use your printer.

for that you need to share that printer for that particular user, or you can share with every one if you want.
but that printer, which is connected to the computer physically... always should be power on.

otherwise you cant use that shared printer.
