Do printing houses really use icc profiles?
Mar 5, 2012

Can you really ask a printing house to provide you with their icc profiles anymore?

I have profiled my paper and printer combination and am very happy with the prints I'm getting. But, if I wanted a larger picture than I can print, I would have to go to a professional print house. Would they really provide me with an icc profile that I could use in Photoshop? Don't they all have their own RIPs or the equivalent now?
