    :thumb:I have Flexi 8.1 I'm using it with SC-500 Soljet Rolland with heater. When I do I job in Flexi I notice that the colors are not coming out the same.
    I don't have the same color of what I see in Flexi. Just wondering
    what I'm doing wrong? The profile I'm using are coming from the Roland site.

    really... dont use flexi if u want any sort of color management. Sometimes LAB color comes out closer... for me at least.

    The combination of variables including which RIP, media, profile, and rendering intents are almost mind boggling...! Try to keep your work flow simple and consistent for the most accurate results... it takes a lot of testing and always record your results for future reference.

    All monitors display color differently. Quality, age, whether or not it's calibrated will have an effect on whether your monitor is displaying color accurately.

    A step in the right direction would be to by monitor calibration hardware and calibrate them regularly.

    The next step would be to add color management throught the design and rip stages of the process.

    Final step would be printer calibration and custom profiles.

    X-rite's i1XTreme would take care of the first and last step. http://www.xrite.com/product_overview.aspx?ID=1240

    Or, you could start with monitor calibration only: http://www.google.com/products?sour...esult_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CCsQrQQwAw

    The middle step requires education based on the design and RIP software you use.
