Apologies, my lack of understanding of printing probably at play here.

I didn't realise that the ICC profiles were influenced by the paper itself. I can see now why my logic is flawed.

I'm going to buy a printer!

many thanks,

If they have downloadable ICC profile, I can guarantee that they are only going to have the profiles for their paper stocks and will not have or be willing to provide ICC profiles for this Lost Luggage paper. Creating ICC profiles is time consuming and it must be done for every printer, paper and ink combination in order for it to even be useful.

If you're trying to use your own paper like that, your only real options are to buy a printer and do it yourself or use a friend's system.

I don't really imagine that any pro lab is going to want to go through the time and expense of using your custom paper and profiling it, etc.

good luck
