Why would I pay for a custom Profile

Why would I pay for a custom profile when I can download a profile for free. We get asked this question all the time, and it would seem insane to pay for something that you can get for free. However, there is a huge difference in quality between a generic profile and a ICC profile which has been created for your computer / printer using your ink and paper combination. Generic profiles are fine to get you up and running, but to get the best possible prints a custom profile makes a world of difference, whats more with a custom profile you will receive expert help in correctly installing and setting up the computer to produce professional prints.
