Hi guys! After receiving some excellent advice from Mu-43 forum members, I recently picked up an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 and am loving the quality of the prints so far. I have another question for you printing gurus: is it worth the time, effort and money required to generate custom printer profiles, as opposed to using the canned printer and paper profiles that are available online? I ask because I've heard and read varying opinions on the matter. Scott Kelby seems to think that Epson and the various paper companies do a great job coming up with printer/paper-specific profiles, but I'm currently reading an excellent textbook on inkjet monochrome printing, and the author is clearly of the opinion that independent printer/paper profiling is required for optimal results. Thanks in advance, everyone!
