    If you're saying, should I have a different or same W in the name to the logo? - again it's if you can make it work. Having the same - the plus is, it can tie the two together, the minus is if it doesn't...

    Looks like you've already made up your mind. Why bother asking for opinions then? Print is right. If you want to make money off your pictures, buy a good camera.

  • 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?
