ICI Imagedata's Olmec range of professional photographic papers are designed to provide excellent imaging qualities, with specially designed coatings to ensure long-lasting prints with accurate vibrant colours, deep blacks and smooth, instant dry finish.
However, it is not only the paper and printer that determines the quality of the finished inkjet print. The printer setting is vital.
With years of experience in inkjet printing technology, ICI Imagedata's technical team - headed up by Dr Olmec - is offering free printer profiles to users of Olmec Paper.
Dr Olmec explains. "Many photographers using standard printer settings for inkjet printing are getting less than optimum image quality. Whatever your model of printer or computer, we can provide you with an ICC* printer profile that will give you a better quality print. This custom profile creates a colour managed system that ensures that your printer accurately reproduces the colours you see on screen. What is more, by getting it right first time, you'll save time and money on paper and ink."

It's easy to obtain your free printer profile from Dr Olmec via the web or e-mail.
