The monitor, printer (Canon iPF81000) and the media (paper for example matte coated, semi-glossy, synthetic, etc) are calibrated to ensure the accuracy of the color from input to output (WYSIWYG- What you see is what you get). In short, The One Academy's print studio is setup with proper color management system in place.
