Hello, I'm new here so go easy on me please!
I work for a silk-screen printing company and use a Mimaki JV4 for creating positive films. We're struggling with the color matching and often resort to the usual trial-and-error method of obtaining a color match, resulting in a colossal waste of time and money. I've known about ICC profiles for a while and studied up on a bit but have hit a major snag. We don't have an ICC Profile-making software program. I have the input profile needed (somewhat as our customer is resistant to the idea of giving us the exact profile we need...go figure), but need to create an output profile for our JV4 to accurately simulate a color match.
My question is this What's a good ICC Profile-making software program? We'd like something that's user-friendly and won't break the bank, but I'm sure that we may not have a choice in that respect because it's just the nature of color management...it ain't cheap or easy.
Better yet, if there's an ICC profile for JV4 high-density inkjet film already out there, we would be forever grateful for whoever can point us to it.
