What is an ICC Profile?

An ICC profile is a small digital file that helps to create a more accurate colour or monochrome image from your printer.

It is used in conjunction with a good image editing software such as Photoshop, Affinity Designer or GIMP to name a few.

Often people find the image on their computer screen looks different to the image they have printed.
An ICC profile can help rectify this issue by correcting the colours your printer applies to an image.

The end result is a printed image that more closely matches the digital image you are seeing on your computer screen*.

Why is this important?

For sublimation users getting a company logo the correct colour can mean the difference between landing a large job, or losing it.

Having an ICC profile will make this task much easier giving you an advantage over the competition, and landing you more work.

Can I use these on my PC/Mac?

Ink Experts recommend the use of Windows based PCs/Laptops/Tablets.
It is also strongly recommended that all printers be used with the provided USB cable, even if the printer has a wireless function.

Support for the following devices will be discontinued as of 11/11/2020

All Apple devices; iMac, Macbook, iPad, and iPhone.
Android devices; Chromebook, all mobile telephones and tablets.
Linux based systems.

The decision to cut support for these devices comes down to colour correction.
Devices listed above do not offer, cannot currently use, or completely ignore custom ICC profiles.
ICC profiles are a necessity when trying to achieve accurate colours with sublimation printing, and without their use the finished result will not be as desired.
Support for purchases before this date will still be offered, but updates made to your system after 11/11/2020 will not be covered in our technical support.

This decision may change in the future if support for ICC profiles is made available in these devices, or in the case of Apple Macbooks and iMacs, when Apple correct their ongoing issues with colour correction.

How is an ICC Profile Made?

ICC profiles are usually made of 3 key parts, but in the case of sublimation it becomes 4 key parts;

  • a printer (eg, an Epson ET2711)
  • ink which the printer is using (eg, Inktec Sublinova Smart Inks)
  • the paper being printed onto (eg, Ink Experts Versa Paper)
  • and in the case of sublimation, the final sublimatable surface (eg, a mug, cushion cover, etc).

Large colour swatches are printed from the printer we wish to profile, using a specific ink and paper.
This colour swatch is then pressed onto a sublimation surface (eg, an aluminium sheet, ceramic tile, a t-shirt, etc).
The pressed surface is now scanned using a professional spectrophotometer, and an ICC profile is produced from the readings it gathers.

Our newly created profile will more accurately produce images from the printer in question when using these inks, and papers.

Is more than One Profile Necessary?

The answer to this question really depends on the user, and on the work they are producing.
To the average hobbyist, who is sublimating for fun, arguably one profile can see you through most jobs.
Your colours will never be as accurate as they could be, but this is more of a hobby than a professional enterprise.

However, should you be sublimating as a business colour accuracy is vitally important.
Customers want the very best quality available, and having specific profiles for all of your sublimates will help ensure the best finished product.

Do You Offer Completely Custom ICC Profiles?

Ink Experts offer a completely custom service as well as these premade bundles.

A completely custom profile can be specifically created to your exact needs, creating a truly bespoke, and accurate ICC for you and your job.

Want an old Epson 1500W using Ink Experts Style ink, Fabric paper and white polycotton t-shirts profiled?
No problem.
Picked up an old machine that has unknown inks in and a large stock of unbranded paper?
We can profile that to get you more accurate results until you can pick up a more readily stocked brand.

*For the most accurate results Ink Experts recommend profiling your monitor to ensure it is displaying the correct colours.
Furthermore it is important to note that altering pressing times, temperatures and pressures can greatly alter the colour output.
Ink Experts recommend some experimentation when pressing a new sublimate in order to get the desired results.
Once the desired result is achieved do not deviate from this pressing method.
