You have to create a Colour Map so that you can load it every time you print. You should find this in your Printer Settings. Trial and Error job to get it right. You should then stick with the INK and PAPER that you use as this affects the printout. You can however create other profile maps. and save these

Thanks for these....but I'm talking about repro printing in a magazine, not printing from an inkjet printer....

How are you viewing the Mag is it a downloaded file or a scanned image You can also create colour maps in Photoshop to save for reprinting on some other print system. You should also have Display Calibration in Photoshop

I'm looking at the hardcopy mag....but have suddenly realized I should compare a previously printed graphic to my graphic on screen, then adjust my screen settings to match...that would solve it...thanks for all your help...over and out.
