    Write-in option:
    "Only when I reinstall system software"

    In all seriousness, I only calibrate before a job which needs critical color. Most of the time speed is more important.

    LOL, when a customer asks me that (and they always do), my standard answer is, "How often do you have s*x?" There's no one answer that is correct for everyone.

    Edit: Oops, I got bleeped!

    My production clients do not calibrate often due to the inconsistencies and difference between certain colors. They are color specific for a certain green and are happy not to calibrate.Last calibration has been in 2 months.

    on a A2100 + Canon IPC6000VP I calibrate once on installation and Fogra control is always smiling

    on a A1100 + Canon IPC6000 calibrating is a shame and give absolute disaster, I spend hours to try to obtain something right ... and finally I adjust the color by hand on the Canon .... sorry

    on Q1/2 + Canon IPC1 on installation then around twice a year (we have about 15 machines)

    on H1 + Canon CLC4040 never because of bad results
    on J1 + Canon irc2880 never because of bad results

    I have always my own EyeOnePro with me.

    Default Printer needs to be warm!

    We calibrate every morning but for critical work the printer needs to be up to operating temperature (push ten sheets through) before a new calibration produces the desired result. We use an EyeOne to calibrate NOT the scanner.

    A bit of patience and the repeat jobs turn out fine

    Default Xerox 700 Calibration

    On average, we calibrate every 2 hrs or about 4-5 times daily. We do notice a considerable difference in print quality at those intervals. Some jobs are obviously much more sensitive than others.

    Default Konica C6500

    We calibrate once every morning after warm-up and before every color critical job. I brought in my old X rite DP41 to use instead of the EFI ES1000 since it seemed so inconsistent depending on who was doing the scanning.
