What is an ICC Profile?

An ICC Profile is a small file that is saved on your computer. It describes how your printer should handle and reproduce colour. All printers come with colour biases and colour errors, therefore, it is necessary to install an ICC profile to achieve accurate colour from your printer. Each individual ICC profile is specific a printer, one type of paper, one ink set and, even, to one print resolution and media/paper setting.

Do I need an ICC Profile?

Yes and No. If you are getting colour accurate prints already then you are extremely lucky and there is no need for a profile. The chance are though that the prints you getting do not match the colours on your screen. If that is the case then we would definitely recommend an ICC Profile.

Can’t I just use a Generic ICC Profile?

The answer is yes, in some cases manufacturers Generic ICC Profiles will achieve a level of colour accuracy that you are happy with however, and is often the case, they will not. To achieve the best possible colour accuracy we would always recommend a Custom ICC Profile.

Why do I need to use the Adobe Colour Print Utility (ACPU)?

The Adobe Colour Print Utility (ACPU) will turn off all colour management settings when printing the profiling chart. This ensures we get a completely accurate representation of how your printer is interpreting colour and well as how this is reproduced using the ink and paper you are printing on.
