    On-screen, it's RGB. On print, it's CMYK.
    Spyder is something which helps your monitor to match as closely as possible, the colours to print.

    it helps if you get the version that supports printer calibration as well.
    by only calibrating the screen w/o calibrating the printer, it does not help.

    you can check out the Spyder3Studio SR, it calibrates the monitor and printer.
    if you are printing else where, there is no way to guarantee color consistency.

    As if they calibrate their printers, it would be done against their own monitor (which does not produce the same color outputs as your calibrated monitor).
