Custom Print Profiles

A print profile is generated by printing a series of colour test patches of known value through your printer and measuring the resultant print. This spectral data is interpreted by the profiling software to generate an ICC colour profile which is installed in your system and used by colour management savy software such as Photoshop, Lightroom or any colour managed application to allow accurate previews and output of your images

Standard or Polarised Profiles

A Standard profile is generated by reading your test chart under standard reflective conditions. This will generate a custom profile for your printer using your sepcific media. This profile works well for all gloss, lustre and satin media.

Matte papers such as Cotton Rag style papers exhibit a fall off in tonal separation as they approach the darker tones and into black. This is caused by flare off the dark target patches limiting the ability of the instrument to measure tonal separation in these areas.

To counter this effect we can use a polarisiong filter on the instrument which will "see through" the flare providing much better shadow separation.

For users of Cotton Rag papers, we recommend ordering a polarised profile which will be provided in addition to your standard profile.
