In the export dialog box change the ppi to 300. Don't change anything else.

In Lightroom's Print module, in the right column, scroll to the bottom, "Print Job". There you will find a box next to "Print Resolution" that you may set to 300ppi. Note that for Epson printers, I believe the native resolution is 360ppi, so that should be the setting for them.

There is no reason to Export your edited image unless you are printing it from another program. Everything is taken care of, in terms of creating the needed file format, by the Print module.
