Colour management - do I change settings on the monitor or the printer?

  wiz-king 16:24 15 Nov 12

First set you monitor using a program like hex2bit or one that has a photocell unit that goes on the screen.

Then download a colour test card from the web and check that it looks OK, then print it on your printer on plain white paper.

Do a comparison and adjust the printer to make it as near as possible to the picture on the screen. You will have to alter the printer settings several times!!!

You wont get it perfect as if you change paper or ink the colour balance will change but with patience you should get a passable match.
