  • Color Profile question

    Ok, so I am at a new job and am working on getting my color-matching under control. I'm getting familiar with playing with the Color Profiles on my PC here and am wondering what Color Settings profile I should choose for a standard HP office laser printer?

    I'm also playing with Quark and trying to figure out what is the best setting to choose when printing? I noticed when choosing to print to the HP printer, Quark literally prints what's on screen, even if it's a low-res preview.

    I asked the IT guy to install PostScript drivers, and now I have a PostScript printer in my printer selection, but the colors print MUCH darker now. Is this normal? Should I consider the PostScript output as "proper colors"?

      Anyone have any good references on how to choose the best color profile or create one for your printer? I wonder if HP has suggestions somewhere?

        Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

        You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

        I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

        Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

        No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...
