  • 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?

        Good point, but in my opinion it's distracting in a portfolio and lacks attention to detail when displaying work.

        Ha, I noticed the printing and registration marks and thought it refreshing to see a designer who knows to include them....

        One of the problems with in-house situations is that, as often as not, the upper management's expertise lies in areas other than marketing, communication or creative. Worse still, is that they don't know...

        This might come across as a snobbish perspective. And I do work in a very weird corner of the design industry, where the theatrical/digital/print world all intersect.
