Take a look at what clients say about my custom printer profiles and the service I provide…

  • “Hey Rick – WOW. All I can say is if you give a crap about your prints you can’t afford not to have profiles made. Great job!” –Jason C., 07/28/17— Harrisonburg, Virginia
  • “Just a note to say -Thank You- for the profile.  I was using a Red River profile for my Canon Image PROGRAF 1000 which was pretty good, but…yours is better. Thank you for the quick turnaround as well.  I will be sending you another set for the Red River “Palo Duro Soft Gloss Rag”, which is my current paper of choice for custom portraits. Thank you once again for doing a good job.” –Gordon K., 06/24/17— University Place, Washington
  • “Hi Rick – I want to thank you again for your extra effort creating a set of profiles for my i9900 and Red River Paper. It was a real pleasure to work with you and I learned a great deal from your explanations—both on your website and in the materials you sent to me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your service or use it again myself. Excellent. Thanks for your work and support.” –Steven S., 06/23/17— Bainbridge Island, Washington
  • “I am loving the profiles! I have tried 3 of them and they are showing a significant upgrade from the canned versions. Will you be home next week? I plan to have a couple more made.” –Steve T., 06/13/17— Grand Junction, Colorado
  • “Rick— Thank you for your detailed explanations.  The time you have given me is really very generous. The sense I have is that this aspect of photography is very engaging for you.” –Steven S., 05/30/17— Bainbridge Island, Washington
  • “Rick; Got the profiles, they look great. Test prints later this week, I’ll let you know results. Thanks for your help on this… You da man.” –Bob P., 05/15/17— Greenbank, Washington
  • “Hi Rick! Your profile was right on! My old rescued Epson 9600 is feeling good and the colors are perfect. Another problem I had with my old profile was that black and white had a color cast and color in shadows was much too dark. Now, it’s alive! Thank you very much for your excellent service. I’m going to forward this information to Joe at Ink 2 Image where I get my pigment inks for the 9600.” –Jim H., 03/29/17— Rockville, Utah
  • “Rick, I’m sending another payment because you earned it. Thanks for working on those San Gabriel paper profiles twice – they were good the first time around. I have no idea why my system required a name change to work. I appreciate your effort. Thanks.” –Mike C., 02/03/17— Ramona, California
  • “Rick, The profiles look great, I can hardly see any difference comparing test prints with my calibrated display, and it’s the ultimate goal. But I also want to thank you for your attitude helping to resolve my issues, fast and very thorough feedback, all handled with high professionalism. I really enjoyed working with you and will recommend you without any doubt to anybody requiring such job. Thanks a lot and best regards.” –Victor P., 02/03/17— San Jose, California

  • “Hi Rick, I just made a few tests with the new profile and so far it does appear to be much better than all the profiles that came with the printer as well as the one that [B]reathing [C]olor provides for that particular paper.

Your expertise has added to the quality and the enjoyment of my work.” –Pierre C., 04/07/15– St-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec, Canada
  • “Rick; I did a test print of each neutral profile. WOW they are way beyond my expectations. I have been shooting for over 45 years, from 8×10 to digital, and I have rarely seen anything make as much of a difference in my workflow as these profiles will… Thank You for a job very well done.” –Bob S., 03/12/15– Atlanta, Georgia
  • “Thanks Rick. The color profile variants that you sent several days ago produced some gorgeous prints. I’ll try this B[&]W out later today. I’ll be coming to you for all my profiles. My needs aren’t great but when I do need one I’ll send to to you. Thanks” –John G., 02/11/15– The Woodlands, Texas
  • “Rick, Thanks for being so thorough. My printer seems to print as expected with ordinary plain paper and photo papers. The profile you sent makes the colors a little more vivid — just the right amount for my purposes — so I am happy with the profile you sent.” –John Y., 11/18/14– Boulder, Colorado
  • “Hi Rick, Just a quick note to let you know that the profiles are fantastic. I’ve made test prints on the Ilford Galerie Gold Silk Fibre from the one profile and that is superb. And I’ve test printed the Inkjet Art profile on all my matte papers and [it] works nicely on all of them. Perfectly on the Inkjet Art paper, but acceptably neutral and saturated on the others. I do lots of black and white work, so neutral B&W is the real test of a great profile for me, and these are excellent. Thanks so much. I’ll be sure to make a public noise about your great quality and service with my photo mates and on forums.” –Jim S., 11/15/14– Masterton, New Zealand
  • “Rick, Your profiles installed and work perfectly, a great improvement over what I was getting. And for the Breathing Color matte paper I even had an icc profile provided by them and it doesn’t work as well as yours does.” –Roy H., 07/29/14– Snohomish, Washington
  • “Rick, I printed all three profiles today. I used printer test images and the results were the best to date for the museo paper. the color as well as the black and white an almost perfect match to the soft proof on the monitor.” –Stephen B., 04/05/14– Fairburn, Georgia
  • “Rick, I would like to thank you for the timely delivery of my profiles.
    This is my first try at a profile, and I must say, that after a few initial prints, I am very happy.
    You have achieved good colour accuracy and saturation, on all 3 of the profiles. I was unable to achieve this on my own, regardless of the adjustments I was making.” –Specs P., 11/11/13– Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • “Thanks a lot! The profiles work beautifully. Another order is coming.” –Oleg M., 10/26/13– Madison, Wisconsin
  • “Rick, thanks for getting the profiles worked out so fast on this Sunday afternoon. I just printed my test target out and my gray balance and colors are perfect.” –Alan T., 08/11/13– Chesterfield, Virginia
  • “Rick:  I have had an opportunity to do a considerable amount of printing with the custom printer ICC profiles that you sent me.  I wanted to drop a line to thank you.  I have used canned profiles, I have made my own profiles and I have had some profiles made by others with varying degrees of success. Conventional wisdom states that you can never fully match color from a print with color from a screen.  Based upon what is coming out of my printer using your profiles… you can’t prove that by me.  Your printer profiles are exceptional.  Thanks again.” –Ken J., 04/07/13– Coatesville, Pennsylvania
  • “Once again, thanks! You’re always so prompt and easy to do business with.” –Carol H., 03/07/13– Sandpoint, Idaho
  • “I’ve installed both of the profiles today and they’ve worked out great – thank you for your accurate and quick service! I shall be sending more profiles your way as we expand our paper selections in the coming months. Many thanks!” –Jan M., 02/10/13– Phoenix, Arizona
  • “I compared this print using your profile (Classic variant) to the result I got by using the standard Epson profile. Side by side, I prefer the result of your profile. It yields a cleaner look devoid of excess saturation. I prefer the neutrality that results from your profile. I thank you for your patience and perseverence. I will recommend your service without hesitation.” –Pierre C., 02/08/13– St-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec, Canada
  • “Rick, Loaded the profiles and have printed color only so far but am very happy with results. Had been printing through a custom profile made for my Epson 3800 and now the 7800 is close to a dead match.” –Jim S., 1/16/13– Bradford, Massachusetts
  • “Wow, you’re awesome – thank you for doing that so quickly!!!!” –Amir R., 01/11/13– Houston, Texas
  • “AWESOME!  Worked Great. Could not be happier. Thank You.” –Joshua F., 12/10/12– Freeport, Illinois
  • “Rick, Followed your instructions. Profiles are installed correctly and I printed a few “problematic” 8×10’s today with great results. Not sure what color style I like, but any one of them is so much better than the stuff I was getting. Thanks again.” –The D. Group, 12/03/12– Palm Coast, Florida
  • “Hey Rick, Another great set of profiles!” –Robert D., 12/01/12– Clayton, California
  • “Thank you- thank you – thank you. I received and installed my new profiles per your thorough instructions downloaded from your website. I have printed the Granger Rainbow from Steve’s (again thanks) and understand what you meant about using it. I can see from the results I have gotten so far that a marked improvement has been accomplished.” –The D. Group, 12/01/12– Palm Coast, Florida

  • “Aloha Rick, I cannot thank you enough.  I’ve been trying… to figure out color management for [my] new printer [Epson 9900, working on Mac OSX 10.7 with Photoshop CS5].  Anyhow, after frustrating Google searches and reading, reading, reading… finally I must have asked the right question in the search bar because I found your page.  And dang, if [your solution] didn’t just work PERFECTLY!!!!  If you’re ever on the Big Island, Hawaii… do look us up cuz we’re buying you and yours dinner!  Huge mahalos (thanks) from a lovely rainforest in Hawaii!”  –Karen K., 11/04/2011– Volcano, Hawaii

  • “WOW!  Rick, the profiles look amazing!  Finally my Epson Pro 4000 is revealing its true potential!  The greys are almost perfectly neutral all the way through the scale, the colors are rich, the blacks are deep, and there is a lot of detail in all three profiles.  I think the colorful one is my favorite.  Thanks again Rick!  –Greg W., 9/09/2011– Seattle, Washington

  • “Hi Rick: profile works great. Unworkable results before – the result of new OS system and 3rd party inks I think, but could not get anything close to neutrals. In fact everything seemed so far off, I was doubtful a profile could fix it.  thanks again.”   –Carl Z., 7/11/2011– Marble Mountain, Nova Scotia, Canada

   –José M., 8/02/2010– Alijo, Portugal
  • “Ok, I couldn’t wait., I went home for lunch and instead of eating, I played. I loaded the profiles and the difference is not subtle. Awesome is more appropriate. All three profiles blew away my canned profile from Epson. I never would have believed it had I not done it myself. It’s pretty silly that I’ll spend 6 grand on a birding lens and then hem & haw about having a $25 profile made….how stupid is that!  Great job on the profiles, thanks for your quick reply to the initial issues!”
   –George B., 7/29/2010– Germantown, Tennessee
  • “Hi Rick, I’ve changed from Epson ink to MIS pro ink and I’m delighted to say that the MIS pro ink[s] with your profiles look better than my Epson inks with their standard profiles ever did. Great web site & very clear instructions btw.  Many thanks…”   
–Simon W.,  3/25/2010– Talala, Oklahoma

–Tony D., 8/5/2009– Bella Vista, California

–Michael B., 7/26/2009– Thousand Oaks, California
  • “Rick, thanks for your quick turnaround. I printed a photo using your ‘colorful’, as well as your ‘chroma’ profiles and the results look great. Your instructions were very helpful, and could not have been written any better. Thanks again for your service.”
   –Rafael C., 7/16/2009– Coppell, Texas
  • “Hello Rick, Just to let you know that my custom profiles that you just made for me have been working wonderful!!!  My prints using Hahnemuhle ICC profiles came out really good. But using the custom profiles that you provided me, they have been outstanding. I haven’t tried yet your B/W profile, but I [feel confident] it won’t be any problem. Thank you, and for sure I’m going to ask you to make more custom profiles for me.”   
–Carlos R., 7/15/2009– Doylestown, Pennsylvania

–Ed K., 6/20/2009– Nelson, British Columbia, Canada
  • “Hi Rick, Wow – that is what anybody would call fast delivery!!  Downloaded and installed. Took the day off and have run printer test files on all the profiles, all printing with LR. I used “Colorful” but will play with the others depending on subject.  Absolutely excellent!!  I then processed a couple of personal files, one colour and converted another to B&W with Silver Efex. Again bang on. The “Advanced B&W Photo” will be good as you can play a bit with the settings. Really appreciate the great service and expertise Rick.”
   –Ed K., 6/18/2009– Nelson, British Columbia, Canada
  • “Hi Rick. Your suggestion worked. Now I understand everything. Thanks for your help and quick response. I rechecked all of my settings and everything is in agreement with your instructions which are very straightforward.”
