Download Our ICC Profile Pack

Install the Adobe Colour Print Utility (ACPU)

You will find the Adobe Color Print Utility installation files for both Windows and Mac within the downloadable ICC Profile Pack.

Open the Paper Profiling Chart (.TIFF) in the ACPU

As soon as you run the ACPU application a window will open asking you to open the .TIFF file included in the ICC Profile Pack called “STEP 3 – Paper_Profiling_Chart.tif“.

Helpful Tips
  • Before continuing, run a nozzle check to make sure the printer has no blocked heads.
  • DO NOT enlarge the .TIFF file. You must print it A4 size (100% – no scaling).
  • Ensure borderless printing is NOT selected.

Set the Media/Paper Type

Select your printer from the dropdown menu, click properties and choose the ‘Media Type’ that closest matches the media you are printing on.

Once your Custom ICC Profile is created, the profile will only be accurate for the setting that you select now so it is important to select the right one.

You can refer to our list of recommended settings if you are unsure – CLICK HERE TO VIEW

Helpful Tips
  • If your printer is not included in the ACPU list, selecting the correct media type is vital.
  • Refer to our list of recommended settings when selecting your media type.

Disable Printer Driver Colour Management

All colour management must be disabled so that we can measure how your printer prints.

Each printer driver has different options that need to be enabled or disabled. Click SHOW MORE and follow the instructions for your printer model below.

Helpful Tips
  • Disabling colour management stops the printer driver enhancing your print, printing colour as your printer interprets.
  • Mac OS users may find the colour management options are automatically disabled – you don’t need to do anything if this is the case.
  • Please contact us on 01789739200 if you are unsure.

Print & Check the Profiling Chart

Once you have set your printer driver settings, make sure you correctly load a sheet of the
media that you would like to profile, coated side facing up, and then click Print.

When you have printed the profiling charts please check you have output it at the correct size and there are no signs of banding, pooling or bleed.

The correct size of the chart to the dashed line is 19.8 cm by 28.6cm.

Helpful Tips
  • On an A4 sheet there should be a white border outside the dashed black line.
  • Prints from Adobe Color Printer Utility often come out a little smaller because it is designed for US and European paper sizes. Do not worry if the chart has printed towards one corner of the paper.

Post your Prints

Print our the order form attached in the ICC Profile Pack and send it to us.

Please wait until your chart is dry (usually around 30 mins) before placing in the envelope.

Please write the product name on the back of the sheet if sending more than one Profiling Chart.

Helpful Tips
  • We recommend sending your Profiling Chart in a hardbacked A4 envelope.
  • Please ensure you pay the correct postage or we may not receive your print.

Receive and Install your ICC Profile

Your ICC Profile will be sent via email, normally within 48 hours of us receiving your profiling chart.

When you receive your profile it needs to be saved in the specific folder to be recognised by ICC-aware applications.
