Printer Drivers on IIS web server

We have an application built on .NET frame work 4 running of Windows server 2012 R2 , the application has a functionality  to print from the client machines with windows 7 and windows 8, with the help of an click on the application. I want to know what features we need to install on Web server in order to share the default printer for clients. I am trying to figure out the best way to setup printers and sharing, so they can be mapped to the end user.All clients have similar printers.
Note : The IIS server is on Virtual environment.

The functionality you want needs to be a bit more detailed.  The printer is attached to what device... the server or the client's desktop?

The code is written is such a way that users need to print a receipt from the application if he select the print button from application it will print on default printer of the user. So do I need to install the print drivers on the servers to be shared of mapped on user side or server side.
So the inside the application, there is a pointer to the print that is assigned to the user?  And this printer must be on the server where the app is running?

Is this a web application (web site)?

Install the file and print services feature on the server.
