Like many disgruntled ink jet printer users, Pro photographer Ron Martinsen had almost given up on getting good quality prints. He found himself averaging about $50 per 4×6 print when you account for all of the clogged print heads, discarded printers, wasted paper, and ink costs. But through much research and in collaboration with Canon, Epson & HP he was finally able to develop a dependable printing workflow with great results. This eBook is a result of his efforts.

This book is the aggregation of 6 months and roughly 400 hours of an intense deep dive the author personally performed to get his head around complexities of the world of printing and color management. This research was supported by Canon, Epson and many other fine companies in the printing industry. He received assistance from both of these printer companies and other key companies in the industry as well as 10 professional photographers for whom printing is the most important part of their digital work flow. Printing is the realization of their artistic intent exactly as they intended it – without all of the limitations of poorly calibrated displays and inaccurate prints on cheap paper.
