metal print question
« on: June 21, 2013, 12:47:18 PM »
I'm having no luck in finding ICC Profiles for having metal prints made from any printing company...
The phrase "when in doubt, make a print" just doesn't cut it @ $50 a pop.      :(
Any help out there?       :-\

Have you emailed/called the company?

Sorry I'm not more help, but I've never printed on that, and talking to someone at the company itself is probably your best source for that information.

I make a color corrected print on gloss white paper.  This allows me to correct exposure as well.  The labs will adjust for their media using the correct ICC profile.  If you send them a corrected digital image, they should get it right.  Some labs will even match a metal print to your print if you send them a print to match.

I think Bay Photo has one profile available for previewing/proofing images on your monitor.
Decent print shops should be able to convert correctly if you embed your profile. In other words, if you send them a file in aRGB, and you saved the image with the profile, they should be able to convert it to whatever color space their printer/material combination has.
