Custom ICC Profiling Services

Getting the best results and accurate color matching requires good profiles for all your devices. Sometimes a factory supplied profile will give acceptable results, more often than not it won't.

The Digital Coach™ can build you a custom profile to optimize color matching.

Profiles can be made for your printer or other output device, scanners can also be profiled. Digital Cameras can be profiled as well but they are more complex. Call us for details.

Custom Scanner Profiles.

Most quality scanners produced today can benefit from a custom profile to accurately describe their color space. To get a custom profile you need to:

1. Purchase an ICC target to scan. Kodak makes them as does Hutchcolor. Choose the size and film type best for you. If you need help, call us.

2. Scan the target on your scanner, email the file to us. Call for instruction on how to scan.

3. We will create a custom target for you and email it back.

4. Install your custom profile in your computer and you are ready to produce great color.

Custom printer profiles.

To get a custom printer profile is easy.

1. Download the target to print on your printer.

2. Print and mail the target to us. Be sure to turn off color management when you print the target. Call for details how to do this.

3. We will create your custom profile and email it to you as soon as we receive your print.

4. Install your custom profile in your computer and you are ready to produce great color.
