It would help if the system spec of each computer is provided?
Do you have a local network by cat5 wire and/or WiFi?
Make and model of the printer is also needed?

There are two methods and I use both with 2 different printers.
1. Network the printer by attaching it to the router. I use a print server which gives me an ethernet port and I connect a cat cable from the print server to my router.
2. Buy a wireless printer. I turn on the printer, which is NOT attached to any computer or the router. I turn on the wireless antenna and I can print to it from four different Windows 7 computers.

to add a 3rd; if the printer is USB, you would need to share it from the computer that it's connected to. But as Dave said, we need details! :)

4th option is to install it on one PC and share it to the other PC.
