Providing a print stylesheet is the responsibility of the theme
author. If WordPress' default and classic themes don't have them then
it would be good to add them.

If you're writing a plugin which adds a print stylesheet, just add the
link via the wp_head hook.

Tarski includes a print stylesheet, it's fairly basic but they're
really not a lot of work to write: just some basic element styles and
then hide headers, footers and the like.
