I have bought an Epson L220 printer and would like to install the drivers onto my HP Laptop.
How do I get and install it on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (amd64 architecture)?

You need to install the drivers for the printer. This can be found on the Epson website.
Please go to:
Make sure you do this for all the files available in step 3 above.
.deb package files with your favourite package manager, e. g. GDebi or Software Center (Ubuntu 16.04 or later only) or on the command-line:
sudo dpkg -i /path/to/pacakge.deb ... sudo apt install -f
As a side note, the best way to find if a printer is compatible is to search OpenPrinting.org. I found the Epson L220 printer there, and saw that it was compatible. I then searched for the recommended driver on Google which pointed me to the Epson Linux Driver website.
