If you're here you don't just use Colour Management you want to find out more.

The web is full of information and it often seems contradictory and can very quickly create more confusion than clarity.

At Print & Proof we can help, through training and practical implementation, explain the relevant key information for you and your business.

Monitor Profiling, D50 or D65?

Creative Suite Colour Settings.

RGB and CMYK when and how to convert.

These and many more areas are covered based on ISO Standards and Industry Best Practise to ensure you get the best and appropriate knowledge and equipment.
