    We have just started digital printing with Accuriopress C3080P. We are at the moment using Coreldraw as a main graphic designing tool and also we are using photoshop and soon we are planning to convert to Illustrator. As most of the users, we too get an issue of screen colour not matching with the Accuriopress C3080P Output. So for that, we need to go for colour management.

    So can members share their opinion on Colour management?

    Also, let me know whether there are KM inbuilt tools for colour management, I saw in youtube most of the printers are using EFI Fiery for doing colour management, can members share their opinion?

    I’ve used EFIs Color Profiler Suite quite a bit in the past. You can use it to calibrate your monitors closer to your print output, as well as profile the machine to target color space.

    the software if a bit of an investment in terms of cost. If it’s just monitor calibration you’re looking for, I’m sure there are less expensive options.

    Are you having any other color related issues? Also keep in mind your customers are viewing their proofs on god knows what. From dated computer monitors or their mobile devices. Physical proofing is often best with color critical clients.

    Hi Sir, Thanks for your suggestion. We too normally do like as you said, giving customers the physical proof. At the moment I am having 2 different brand monitors for graphic designing (Mostly they are normal LED monitors). Can you let me know what is the okay level monitor brands that you can recommend at a reasonable price? thank you sir
