Effortless CM The easiest method for matching a printer to a monitor without the hassle of creating ICC profiles is by hiring an online service do the profiling for you. For a fee they will e-mail you a target file that you print on the intended printer and paper. After that, you snail-mail the print back to them that they in turn scan with a spectrophotometer. Their software writes the profile and they e-mail it back to you. Place the profile in the Color folder in Windows or the ColorSync folder in Mac and access it from the Color Settings dialog box and you're good to go. If you're not in a heavy production environment that uses multiple printers and substrates or if you're not in a constant color-critical environment this option is worth looking at. It does save the expense of purchas- ing the equipment and software. Three websites that offer profiling services are: Profiles by Rick: http://profilesbyrick. com RP Imaging: https://www.rpimaging. com/services/custom-icc-profiles.html Great Profiles: https://www.great- printerprofiles.com You should however, at an absolute minimum calibrate your monitor using the system software. Better still, get your hands on a colorimeter to calibrate your monitor so that you can be assured of seeing the best possible on-screen image. Twas Ever Thus… Calibration is essential to producing consistently predictable color from your printer. Since ink-sets are proprietary and substrates absorb ink and produce color differently, you should create a dis- tinct profile for each printer and each paper that you use. Predictable color means less waste in time and materials. If consistent color is important to your workflow, the initial expense of a cali- bration system is well worth the money in that it eliminates the extra effort and materials required to reprint unsatisfac- tory images.
