So I never calibrated a monitor when doing graphic design. My work consists of 50% print and 50% online. No big projects just business cards, flyers and occasional menus/brochures. Now I don't have a problem with the colors on this end, easier to get away with.
I don't do much photo editing as I don't have much gigs (this is my side gig). Here I do worry a bit about the colors as at least one time I have had colors print a bit different from what I saw on monitor. I have an Acer monitor that is at least 2 years old.
There is a facebook photography group that mentioned the ColorMunki and the Datacolor spyder4pro. I have no idea on this subject as never really paid attention to this until a few weeks ago.
Not sure if better to get a new/better monitor than what I have currently. Even if this is calibrated, images still may appear different on other monitors regardless if they are calibrated or not? Are these tools the better route to calibrate or are there other methods that can be done to calibrate monitor?
