Since calibration need to be repeated after some time it makes more sense to get your own calibration device. Using 'calibration' in the search tool here will show you all those question that have been asked, discussed and answered already...

even after calibration, what you print may still differ from what you see on your screen
Unless you calibrate everything from your monitorall the way to your printer...

Spyder Studio is way to go for that. ;)

if you print, the spyder studio is your only choice.
you need to calibrate your printer as well to match the colors.

so it mean that if i calibrate my monitor with spyder 3 , and i printed at the shop, the colour will be different?

in short, i need to have my own printer, and calibrate it together with my monitor , to get the best result?


correct me if i'm wrong.

yes, shop uses a different profile from you so there's bound to be a difference.
