ICC Profiling Service

Remote ICC Profiling

What is a remote custom ICC profile?

Every printer, ink and computer set up used for producing digital images is different, and the paper used in the printer adds another element of varaibility into the process. In simple terms a generic ICC profile is a file which holds information about the colour reproduction ability of a particular printer and ink combination with a particular paper. These generic profiles are created from prints on a particular paper on that printer model, normally using standard inks. When you print with that profile on the same printer model the way the image prints will be adjusted to the way the printer handles the ink on that paper. A custom remote ICC profile is a profile that is created for your precise set up of printer, ink, computer and paper. When you print and use this precise file then you will be able to print on your chosen paper and get the most from it.

Why bother with a custom ICC profile?

Professionally produced custom ICC profiles have been around for a long time however the need for them has been questioned by some people as even 8 years ago, the results we could get from a printer, right out of the box, with generic profiles were sufficiently accurate for many. However. if you wanted to achieve results which you could fairly accurately predict, then Custom ICC Profiles were an absolute must.

Now however, the latest printers are getting so good that indeed, one does not immediately feel the need to use Custom ICC Profiles, and indeed if you are to believe the printer manufacturers, you will never need ICC profiles. If you have never tried your images using a custom profile then you will have no way to tell if you are missing out. On the other hand if you experienced an improvement when you used a generic profile, then you can probably guess that using a custom made ICC profile will likewise give you a noticeable improvement.
If you print in higher volumes or print commercially then you are probably already looking to non-OEM inks. Generic profiles will not help you with these inks however a custom ICC profile will reduce your longer term costs and provide more than satisfactory results in your imaging.

But, if you, like us, perform some tests then you will also see that the quality of your images will be improved, both in terms of colour gamut reproduction and accuracy, when you use a Custom ICC Profile made specially for your printer, ink and paper combination. In many cases we have seen a dramatic improvement in the quality of image reproduction.
