Get your Custom ICC Profile for any CMYK printing press

$75.00$499.00

Ever wonder why your newspaper or magazine ads color is of such a poor quality where the image tones are too red or brown or yellow and even green. This is because your RGB to CMYK conversions were from a GENERIC ICC profile and you did not create a NEW custom ICC Profile to target your press. A custom ICC Profile is the DNA of a specific press. Professional Commercial Printers should offer their clients up to date ICC Profiles from each press they have, but often never do so, due to the time, complexity, and costs involved to create ICC profiles of each of their presses on regular intervals and for all the different printing papers used and constant new batches of inks used for their supplies. One has to consider the paper your ad is printed on, whether it’s a newspaper, coated paper, or uncoated paper stock. In order to get an accurate ICC profile one needs to have a Spectrophotometer reading of the color swatch target printed on the press you will use and on the paper stock used. Furthermore, if you have pantone colors for your logos and need accurate color then you’ll need a custom ICC profile. So if you are a color critical client or advertiser, you surely don’t want to waste your money on poor color printing. If you accept poor color from your printers you are telling your potential customers that poor color reproduction is not important to you, so what does that say about your product or service you are advertising.

We FIX the color issues that many printers either don’t care about or just can’t accommodate everyone with ICC Profiles. The NEW Color standard by printers is called “PLEASING COLOR”! If that’s OK with you, then that’s what you will always get. Not accurate color, just pleasing color.

We provide Custom ICC Profiles for any CMYK printing press. The process is not complicated when you know the method to creating your Custom ICC Profile for any CMYK printing press. If you are a professional pressman, frequent advertiser, professional graphic designer or just want perfect color from your printer, then you need a custom ICC Profile from the printing press you will be using. Every time the printing press gets a new batch of inks you’ll need to re-run this 4 color swatches test and get a new reading for an accurate ICC Profile from the New Inks being used. Every batch of inks have different properties of color therefore these ICC Profiles are critical to accurate color measurements. When you purchase this service we will email you the download link to our custom 4 Color CMYK Swatches, print these 3 files on the press or any digital printer you want your final output to use, be sure to use the same paper stock and gloss as your final printed project will use. All inks, press and paper are part of the ICC Profile. Once you have the 4 color swatches printed send us the printed swatches for measurements. If you are local to Phoenix, AZ we can meet with your printer and get the swatches printed for you. Once we have scanned your color swatch targets we will email you the custom ICC profile for your press.

(The RGB 4 color swatches shown to the left here are examples and is not useable or accurate for creating a 4 color ICC Profile from any press since these are RGB files)

We know you have deadlines and need to have your ICC Profiles immediately. Our Spectrophotometer measurements service is a 48 hour turn around. We’ll scan your Printer 4 Color Swatches and create your custom ICC Profiles and send you the ICC Profile to you by email so you can do your RGB to CMYK conversions right away. We’ll even name your ICC Profile based on your printer press name you provided. Naming the press is also an important requirement, so you can use the right ICC profile for your printing needs.

Many Printers don’t have the expensive Spectrophotometer to even create these ICC Profiles. This service is also available to color printers so that your customers can download your own custom ICC Profiles from your Web site. Having ICC Profiles for your customers insures that you will have accurate color and guarantees color critical happy customers.
