There is a good discussion on color profiling at this page:

http://desktoppub.about.com/cs/colorcalibration/a/cal_monitor.htm

Both the display and the printer must be calibrated. In order to get precise color matching, a colorimeter is required.  There are several on the market, and the above article links to a page that discusses colorimetric color matching.

Be aware that as monitors age, their color profiles change too.  The manufacturer's supplied color profile applies to a brand-new monitor.  The only way to get a precise match at any given point in the lifetime of the monitor is with a colorimeter.
