We use Gretag-MacBeth (X-Rite) profiling equipment with their Profilemaker 5 software that provides the highest quality profiles. For normal photo paper profiles we're now using an X-Rite DTP-70 auto spectrophotometer. This is an extraordinarily good spectrophotometer that has a higher accuracy than the i1 Pro we need to use for thicker materials like canvas and other non-standard materials. Our example has recently returned from recalibration by X-Rite in the USA and is run on a dedicated system.
Colourprofiles have been making custom profiles for customers since 2003. In that time we have profiled most of the inkjet, laser and dye sub printers, inks and papers available.
Over the years we have come across and resolved most issues and misunderstandings in the use of colour management. With that experience we can now quickly offer help and support if needed. See our customer's own comments on our service and let them reassure you the quality of our profiles and service.
We now have a wonderful band of loyal customers who return to us for new profiles whenever they try new papers or buy new printers. Over half of our business is returning customers. Why don't you join us too?
We are able to offer custom printer profiles at a very low cost.
We achieve this by just offering a single service, custom profiles for inkjet and laser printers; we don't profile scanners, cameras, monitors, pre-press profiling or offer on-site visits. By having such a narrow focus we are able to provide clear, accurate instructions for using our profiles in colour managed systems that help our customers to be sure of getting great results easily.
We've found our customers find our products easy to use, so we can pass on the saving of not having to provide costly support services, although we'll always be able to assist our customers in using our profiles via email should that be needed.
