    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

  • Xerox Phaser printers

    Is anyone familiar with Xerox' Phaser printers? We have a 7300 and a 7750DN in our studio and i am trying to calibrate the colors to closely match the PMS colors.

    I understand this can be a long process, but I am wondering if there is an easier way. i am a tree-hugger at heart and i hate wasting so much paper.

    Quick questions:
    1) are you sending the pantone info to the printer?
    2) What application are you printing from?
    2) Have you done the calibrate colours thing?
    4) Have you used non-xerox toners in the printer?

      4) have always used xerox brand toners on the printer.

      2) i have done the color calibration through the printer options. however, i can get one pms color but then the rest is a little off. our palette consists of 12+ colors. for example, i can get close to 648C, but then 645C, 644C, and so forth are off.

      2) mainly the application we're printing from is Indesign CS.

      1) by sending pantone info, do you mean printing cmyk? or using profiles?
      i am printing cmyk. i've tried different profiles such as NONE, SWOP and automatic. i can get somewhat close on the 7750DN on the "None" profile, but the 7300 prints funny (totally different) on "None" profile.

      Thanks!
