do you mean colour profiling so all colours are the same when viewed and printed. If so, yes this can be done, by eye very tricking unless you are very talented with colour, or you cn buy monitor calibrators that will do it for you.

My monitors pretty much match my prints...

...this means I have eye for colour? 8)

Sypder was what I was gonna get, until I ran out of money - seems fab.

i carry mine around- lighting conditions change and the way that the light hits your screen will change what you're looking at.

the Huey Pantone Pro is about the size of pen making it easy to carry.
