If you create a presentation using either the AutoContent Wizard or a design template, a presentation with ready-made slides would be created for you. If you start a presentation from scratch, you would have to create your own slides as you see fit. The primary difference is that, the slides created from a presentation from scratch don't have any design: they are presented with a white background. This gives you complete freedom to customize their appearance.

Printing allows you to put the presentation on paper. There are various reasons you would do this. Some members of your audience may want to have the slides on printed paper. Some times, for some reason, you may want your audience to have piece of paper that represent various slides so that each member can go back and forth among slides without asking you to change the slide especially if only one out of many wants to jump to a particular slide. In some cases too, you may have text, charts, or document links in your slides that people may forget when you finish your presentation.
