FIRST QUALITY PROFILING SERVICE
CUSTOM ICC PROFILES FOR YOUR PRINTER
Custom ICC profiles for your printer
Custom ICC profiles will give to your printer brilliant accurate colors on any paper, good soft proofs ( very good control of out of gamut colors ). Each printer is physically different, the generic ICC profiles provided with your printer are made for one printer but not your printer ! Your prints don't match your screen ? You can't have good black and white prints ? You want to print on third party papers with good results ? The good way to solve this is to use custom ICC profiles made for your ink/printer/papier combination.
Michael Reichmann from Luminous Landscape tried my profiles ( color and black and white ), here's what he says:
" Good profiles are a virtual necessity for high quality inkjet printing. It costs
a lot of money and some effort to purchase the equipment to make these yourself,
and most people don't bother. But the profiles that come with most printers or
papers are rarely first rate. The alternative then is to have someone with the
proper gear and skills make a custom profile for your printer, your inks, and
your preferred paper.
There are a number of people on the net who provide such service, but one that I recently had the opportunity to try myself was christophe métairie photographie, and I was very impressed with the results. Recommended. Michael Reichmann."
Superposition of correction curves for same model but different printer
same paper/driver config
Each printer needs different correction curves, generic profiles can't do this !
The process to make your custom ICC profiles is easy: print the targets with a specific driver configuration. Send them to me, I'll read the targets with a xrite i1 pro 2 and iO automated table.

To Print the targets:
To print the target properly without any color management, the only safe way is to use a little software from adobe called " adobe color printer utility " , you can download a mac or PC version:
Just open the targets files in adobe color printer utility, clic on print set up to configure your paper size, then clic on print to access to your driver. Don't forget to configure your printer driver for each page to bypass the color management, choose the right media type and resolution in the driver. Save your printer driver configuration for this paper to be sure you'll print with the same driver configuration when you'll print with your profiles on this paper.
To be sure there is no nozzle clog on your targets
After printing the targets, let it dry for at least 12 hours before packaging to send, do not write on the back or cut the sheet, I need the white area around the patches. Look very carefully at your prints, they have to be perfect to make good profiles: no nozzle clogs, no scraches on the prints !
