It might be worthwhile to mention how you use your printer, what you usually print, and how much you print each month. – John S Gruber Aug 22 '12 at 4:55

Ubuntu Wiki lists Epson Printers that have been tested on the currently supported version of Ubuntu.

As you are not fixed on one model you can browse through these by clicking on this link

Make sure your printer is compatible

More help is available here at the Linux Foundation where you can enter the name and model of the Printer and it will tell you if its compatible

I did a little bit of research and fear your options maybe be limited, you may also find this link useful
