    Since every machine is going to output differently, I would say make a file with a few shades of red and gree and adjust the rgb/cmyk values of each swatch. Print that out and see which one looks best or decide from the samples what you need to adjust further. Find the good or close swatch and keep adjusting values in your software until you get it right. Or if you have a pantone or cmyk swatch chart you can print that for future reference. You will still likely have to adjust since even a good pantone chart will still be a fraction of what your printer is capable of

    Also look at it in different lights.
    Mainly direct sunlight as that is where it will be veiwed most of the time.

    And so the challenge begins....LOL
    In reality there is no such thing as colour matching on a 4 colour machine.
    It's all your best guess and then sometimes it's impossible.
    Just make it something close stick to your standard profiles and adjust them on the design.
