Looking for a WiFi printer that will work with my Nexus WiFi hotspot

On a recommendation, we have bought an Epson NX530 WiFi-enabled printer.  It does not work with the WiFi hotspot feature of my Galaxy Nexus.  The support tech at Epson suggested that we get a WiFi router rather than trying to use the Galaxy Nexus.  I told her that I would rather trash the NX530 and get a printer that would work with my phone.

So we have 3 questions:

1) does anyone know how to make an Epson NX530 work via the Galaxy Nexus hotspot?

2) does anyone know of a different WiFi enabled printer that works with the Galaxy Nexus?

3) does anyone know if the Galaxy Nexus is inherently unable to work with any WiFi printer?

This website should be able to assist you.   I use an app called Printhand from the Google Play Store for my Android tablet and smart phones. I have a Canon  Pixima 3220 that functions great. I also have a higher end HP Envy D410a that also works great with printhand.  The Canon is cheap at BJ's at $40 when I bought it. The HP is about $269 at Staples and other outlets.  Good Luck
