As I had time on my hands I thought I would calibrate my monitor and create some new profiles for my Permajet printer papers. At the same time I thought I would compare my home produced profiles to the Permajet standard profiles and I ordered some bespoke profiles as well.
I used Permajet Oyster as the paper to test as I tend to use this for most purposes anyway so it seemed reasonable to choose that one.
I created 4 prints on one piece of A3 paper using the three profiles above plus letting the printer (Epson P600) create another one for good measure. The image that I choose had lots of subtle tones and colours and featured Ivory Flame in a creative textured image.
- Epson P-600 A3 printer
- Permajet Inks
- Permajet Oyster Paper
- Photoshop CC
The outcome of this test is that I have got one profile that I will probably not use (Epson) an ‘off the peg’ one that I will likely not use and a choice of two similar ones. I cannot say which one is better but it does give me a choice when I am printing both of which I now know will give great prints. A worthwhile comparison which passed an hour and gave me some options that will be useful going forward.
