    Calibrating a printer?

    kcrossley Level 1

      What's the best way to calibrate a printer?

       

      I was thinking about creating an InDesign file with various CMYK color-built sqaures and then comparing the printed squares. I would then print out the sheet and compare it with my Pantone Color Bridge swatch and tweak the printer settings until I got a match. Will that work or is there an easier way?

          If you want good calibration and a profile, invest in an instrument and software (you need to re-calibrate fairly often). My Xerox came with a self-branded xRite ColorMunki and iOne match, which you can buy as standalone products for a fairly reasonable price.
