    That article is full of fallacies and almost dangerous for the uninitiated to read.

    It ignores the biggest cause of difference in colour between the screen and the print which is room lighting. I know photographers love to calibrate their displays to 6500k but that will only be useful when comparing to a print under one set of viewing conditions.

    Also "We DO NOT want the printer to do any color management for us" is a very bold statement that should really be clarified. It should state "we have more control if the printer does not do any color management for us". There is nothing and I really mean NOTHING wrong with having printer driver do colour management. In fact it is more likely to select the correct colour profile for your given paper type, and the only time it's unacceptable to use printer colour management is when you have your own custom printer profile.

    Just because one is automated doesn't mean it's bad.
