Option # 3 - Manage Your Own Colour Professionally
There is only one way to manage your colour workflow and ensure that your prints meet your standards, and that is by managing your own colour. First, your monitor must be calibrated. Then, the media you are using must be profiles for use with your specific printer. Even though we may be able to provide you with a generic icc profile for your printer model, every individual printer "drifts" from this and this is why a generic profile will never deliver 100% accurate results.
The good news is that Xrite, the global leader in colour science, has made this easier and more affordable than ever with their Colormunki Photo product. Colormunki was designed specifically as a completely integrated colour control solution for photographers and printmakers, so that you can get accurate screen to print colour matching, every time.
