When capturing or printing your masterpiece, ensuring accurate color reproduction can sometimes seem daunting.

And when printing your digital images, color profiles and a color calibrated display makes all the difference. X-Rite color solutions make it easy.
And while you’re here, take advantage of:
- FREE COLOR CALIBRATION – First-come, first-serve from 12:30pm to 4:30pm
Kyle will install software on your laptop and use X-Rite color management solutions to calibrate and profile your laptop monitor. You’ll see for yourself how easy it is to keep your monitors calibrated and profiled saving you time and money when editing and printing your digital files.

Calibrations take 10-15 minutes and as noted, are first-come, first serve from 12:30pm to 4:30pm. So simply stop by a product demo area that we will have set-up near the center of the store.
- FREE COLOR MANAGEMENT PRESENTATION – RSVP required for the 10:30am to 11:30am. RSVP HERE.
Join Kyle for a brief presentation and an extended question and answer session on color management for your digital workflow. There’s no need for this to be a mystery. X-Rite solutions make it easy and quick to keep your workflow color managed from capture, to edit, to print. Come join us for this informative session. Space is limited and an RSVP is required.
Why calibrate your monitor with color tools?
- Monitors display color differently and change over time – you need to regularly calibrate to ensure consistency at all times.
- Your eyes aren’t perfect – you need a color measurement tool to ensure accuracy
- Image colors are not true to life on your display – you need to calibrate if your skin tones are off, whites aren’t pure or there is a color cast.
- Highlights and shadow details are lost – calibrating will bring back the details in your photographs
- Grays and whites aren’t consistent causing shift in color hue – calibration produces neutral grays and whites
A calibrated monitor will reduce your photo editing time and you’ll consistently be able to match your prints to your monitor.
