monitor and printer collaboration
show user profile  zeefusion
At work I want to collaborate all monitors and printers to be the same colour, brightness, contrast etc.

Is there a decent DIY kit? if so can some one point me to one. Or is it best to call in a professional service?

Not too sure, but i think its calibration you mean, if you are doing google searches.

Datacolor has the spyder 3 studio which is a set for monitors and printers calibration.
but i don't have any experience with it. i only have the spyder express for my own monitor, which helps a bit with color calibration

Spyder Pro is decent, comes with a pretty good color manager that will keep your apps and devices in check, but make sure you calibrate at least once a month because all monitors slowly deteriorate the settings.

so in the long run its better to buy a DIY kit as it would be cheaper than having a tech guy come do it once a month.

I didnt realise you would have to do it once a month to keep it up to date.

but dont have too much hope on getting close calibration unless you have very expensive monitors.
on "regular" priced monitors you will see improvement but its still pretty far from being a perfect match between what you see on your monitor and what you get printed...
