Shortly before Christmas, 1999, I started using non-Epson inks and papers in my Epson 1200 printer, because I wanted to make prints that would last more than a year or two. I quickly realized that getting prints to match what I saw on my monitor was not going to be easy, compared to what I had been getting before with Epson materials. In January 2000 I bought and downloaded a printer profiling software package called Profiler RGB. It was extremely simple to use and it made a great improvement in the quality of my prints. For the first time I could print on a variety of paper types and have the prints look almost identical.
I have recently been certified as a Juried Member of the Crafts Council of New Brunswick, Canada, after submitting prints made on watercolour paper using ColorVision’s Profiler software.
