COLOUR MANAGEMENT DOCUMENT
(Recommended Photoshop and Printer Driver Settings)
Marrutt ICC ProfilesMarrutt Pro Inks are formulated to provide a close match to the original OEM brand inkset, so for normal-basic printing simply use the usual Epson print settings to provide good standard accuracy in colour and black & white with correct print density (plug and play). This is particularly useful when printing from non-Adobe Photoshop applications, which do not support colour management.
For more colour-critical printing, we recommend obtaining a Marrutt Custom Profile. See our Custom Profiling page for further details of this service.

Inaccurate Colour / Printer Settings

If you do not have a perfect nozzle check, please refer to the printer head cleaning section of this page. Once you have confirmed you have a perfect nozzle check, ensure you are selecting the correct profile and have the correct printer settings in Adobe Photoshop for that profile. These are:
