It's time for me to properly calibrate my Canon Pro 9000 Mark II ink jet printer so that I'll actually use it. I want to be able to use different inks and papers, so the manufacturers profiles aren't going to meet my needs.
I have a Spyder device to calibrate my monitor and I have a nice Epson scanner, so this product called PerfXprints looks like it would be perfect for me. If it works.
All they sell you is the software and a color chart card for $135. You put the card in your scanner to calibrate the scanner first. Then you print a file with your printer and put the print into the scanner. Supposedly the software generates an ICC profile.
The website is not completely clear on how it works. The tutorial page is broken, which is a bad sign in my opinion. However, you can order it through B&H, which is a good sign.
Has anyone tried this product or other products that work on the same principal? I really don't want to pay nearly $500 for the ColorMunki that replicates two pieces of hardware that I already have.
