    Get an i1 pro, then study up on color management and ICC profiles. Your monitor can display a much wider gamut than your printer can print. The only option is to profile your printer than profile your monitor and match it to the printers gamut. Then you need to make sure your design apps use these same profiles so they are within the same limits. Then make sure these design apps output files with an attached color space and profile that is also within the same limits that Flexi will accept and work with.

    What Sightline said!

    You need to learn color managment and calibrations as well as buy the equipment to do it.

    FYI color managment and calibrations with matching colors can be a very long and difficult road but if you go down it and learn it it is very much worth it.

    Good Luck.
