colormunki, custom printer profile, or both?
Dec 9, 2011

I'd like opinions on the decision to rent a colormunki, and/or having a custom profile run for my R2880.

i am not hugely discerning, but i can see clear cases where the printed colors are significantly more muted than the on-LCD colors. the display is a dell U3011 set for aRGB, the working space in PSCS3 is aRGB, i am shooting RAW in a D200, and i have turned off color management in the printer driver - so i think i should have covered the obvious bases. the display was recently calibrated using an i1 display2.

i don't want to buy a colormunki, but renting one is sensible for me. or, i can have a custom profile ruin. or both. first, have i missed anything in my settings? if not, then i'd appreciate ideas on the custom profile/printer calibration choice. thanks very much.
