NETWORK PRINTING with 2 Netgear Routers

Hi all -
I have wired ethernet throughout my house, along 2 Netgear Routers for Wifi ... Upstairs & Downstairs, setup with 2 Network Names (Netwk-up and Netwk-down).  

I can connect wirelessly to my network thru either Router/WiFI ... whichever signal is stronger/closer, and I can access everything on my network them EXACTLY same (thru Netwk-up or Netwk-down) EXCEPT THE NETWORK PRINTERS !!  
 
In order to print to my Upstairs Printer, I MUST be on WiFi named Netwk-up, and likewise, in order to print to the printer downstairs, I need to switch to WiFi Netwk-down.

NOW I UNDERSTAND THAT I CAN SETUP THE ROUTERS DIFFERENTLY TO USE 1 NETWK NAME!! BUT what I don't understand is with the setup I have, WHY the Network Printers seem to be isolated to their 1 Netwk name where they were originally setup on.

Hope this makes sense ... Does anybody have a solution for this?
