    Notorious Blue-to-Purple Colour Shift... Even *After* Using Specified Profile!

    I assume that the profile would have to be assigned to the combination of the machine, the inks used and the paper stock (e.g. if one uses different paper, that would possibly affect the gamut or other aspects of the printing if the controller/printer wasn't aware that a different paper was...

    Notorious Blue-to-Purple Colour Shift... Even *After* Using Specified Profile!

    The problem is that I'm primarily a web developer/programmer with a passable aesthetic sense, not a printing/design professional- I've no idea about "proper" proofs.

    Notorious Blue-to-Purple Colour Shift... Even *After* Using Specified Profile!

    We had some business cards printed with a well-known company. Though we've had problems with blue to purple colour shifts before, we hadn't used their specified colour profile, so I won't blame them for that. This time round we *did* download and use the profile ("ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)") (*)...
