Two Epson printers, two different outcomes.

Posted on 2004-11-13

I am sort of a newbie in the computer world and I have a question.  I have an Epson R200 and and Epson 1280.  I had the R200 first and went throughly, to put it lightly, about a 100 printouts before I got my settings correct.  I have my monitor calibrated to match so what I see on the screen would be what I get out of the printer.  Now I brought the 1280 and I am using the exact same settings as I used with the R200 but the printout is not the same.  Do I have to have to different monitor profiles for each printer?  Or should they be printing the same

    Each printer has its own little differences... When you calibrate your monitor you just set it up so that the monitors colours match the ones the printer prints... If you plug in another printer, you just have to recalibrate your monitor so that it matches the new one...
