Calibrate your monitor. Use Epson paper and the supplied ICC profiles. Be sure that you're using Adobe RGB color space, and convert any files you open to that if they aren't already. It's only seat of the pants if you're not looking at what is really being sent to the printer.

Just out of curiousity- why only Adobe RGB? I have not printed using this colorspace "yet". I've been using sRGB, since most of the professional printer sites use this colorspace. The photos I've printed on my r3000 are super. I know that Adobe covers more gammut, but does it improve that much on the final prints? I'm not sure my monitor will cover the Adobe gamut anyway. Thanks for any imput.
