Color Management & Screen Calibration Services

Why Calibration is Important:

Color Accuracy

Calibrating your monitor ensures that the colors displayed on your screen match the colors in your digital files accurately. This is crucial for professionals in fields such as graphic design, photography, and video editing, where color accuracy is paramount.


Without calibration, different monitors may display colors differently, leading to inconsistencies in how your work appears across various devices. Calibration helps maintain consistency in color and tone across different screens.

Print Matching

For professionals who produce printed materials, calibrated monitors help ensure that what you see on screen closely matches the final printed output, reducing the need for costly revisions and adjustments.

How to Calibrate Your Monitor

Hardware Calibration

For the most accurate results, consider investing in a hardware calibration device. These devices, such as colorimeters or spectrophotometers, measure the colors emitted by your monitor and generate a profile to ensure accurate color reproduction.

Software Calibration

If hardware calibration is not an option, you can use software-based calibration tools. These tools guide you through adjusting your monitor's settings manually to achieve accurate colors. However, software calibration may not be as precise as hardware calibration.

Choose the Right Settings

Before calibration, ensure that your monitor is set to its default settings and allow it to warm up for at least 30 minutes. Adjust the brightness and contrast settings to match your working environment, and disable any automatic brightness adjustments.

Follow Calibration Instructions

Whether using hardware or software calibration, carefully follow the instructions provided by the calibration tool. This typically involves displaying a series of color patches and adjusting settings until the desired calibration is achieved.

Regular Maintenance

It isn’t a one-time task. Over time, monitors can drift from their calibrated state due to factors such as age, temperature changes, and environmental conditions. It's essential to recalibrate your monitor periodically to maintain accurate color reproduction.

By calibrating your monitor regularly, you can ensure that your digital work is displayed accurately and consistently, whether it's viewed on your screen or in print.

A calibrated monitor is a key part of creating high quality  prints. Prints too dark? Unexpected results when printing your photos? Calibrating your monitor for print is a very important first step to being able to properly see the colors in your file. Without a properly calibrated monitor you can only hope for the best when printing.
