An ICC (International Color Consortium) Profile is standardized file format created by special computer software. An ICC Profile creates a common color space used for color management in printing workflow. ICC Profiles are often used when it is necessary to compensate for color differences between dispirit devices like scanners, digital cameras, computer monitors, ink systems printers, and/or printing presses.
To maximize the accuracy between what you see on the screen and what comes off of our printers, you will want to download our ICC profile and use it to soft proof your images.
We have one ICC profile that allows you to soft proof for both regular and large format sizes.
