    So I'm using a SP-540V and well I'm finding that, because of age?, I'm having a hard time finding proper media profiles for my vinyl. (ie Arlon DPF 4560 GT).

    Does anyone have a good resource of profiles to download? and if you can't find a proper profile what settings do you use? (Just for general vinyl printing no special materials)

    canned profiles suck. Make your own. A small investment in a spectrophotometer can go a long way.

    I've probably used an entire roll testing different profiles and tweaking them over the years. I found that 3M-IJ180-C was pretty close using Flexi for my SP-300V. But had to tweak it some using an i1 to get it "perfect". I use that profile 99% of the time unless I am printing a graphic from Aurora that is blue since it makes it print purple.

    Pick any profile that suits your needs..or edit the profile to suit etc. YOU TELL YOUR PRINTER HOW MUCH INK TO LAY DOWN!! it doesn't tell you

    Agreed but if you have to use a canned profile the 3M ones tend to have the brightest colors and high saturation in my experience.
