Professional ICC Custom Profile service


profile image

Beginners to Digital photography and printing are often a little confused why a seperate ICC profile is required with 3rd party inks. The common misconception is that it covers up some inadequacy, which is of course not true.

A printer requires ICC information no matter which inkset is used. This also applies to OEM inks, but the printer manufacturer is able to build the profile into the printer driver, so it appears that no profile is required when in fact one is. Third party inks have a slightly different colour space, therefore a different profile is required. Our profiling service will allow your prints to be of professional standard and ideal for portrait and wedding albums.




A professional printer profile is created from an A4 print of the image above, this image is made up of nearly 1,000 colour patches. You print this image out and send it back to Specialist Inks using your basic print settings combined with your choice of Marrutt Paper. We then process this print, and e-mail you a finished printer profile. This profile allows you to print at a professional standard with your Marrutt Professional Photographic Paper.

We are happy to provide a FREE profile with all Marrutt Ink and Lyson Ink purchases.
