Hi all and thank you in advance for those who will give me some piece of advice

My name is Stefano and I just started using a V180 printer with Fiery Full Package (Color Profiler Suite, Spectrophotometer, ecc. ecc.). I'm really a newbie so I hope my questions won't be kind of stupid.

From what I got I'd better profile my paper stock (output) and then calibrate the printer to make sure the result is consistent in time with the profile. Till here everything sharp and clear

I'm just wondering if there is some sort of pre-calibration or pre-check I'd better make before profiling the paper stock, in order to make sure the press starts working in perfect condition.
