A wise response Steve... since there is a factor you are probably unaware of here. ColorLife paper is metameric... That's right. In attempting to reduce the orange shift issue that the 1270/1280 are known for, Epson has created a paper that encapsulates the ink (to avoid contact with Ozone) and results in a print that (similar to Epson's encapsulated pigment inks) has differing color responses under differing light sources. Its not as extreme as the 2000p shift, but I was able to demonstrate it to Epson reps in their own booth the day the paper was introduced by moving their own image with a blue sky from the general show lighting, where the sky was Cyan, to Epson's spot lighting, where it was a purply blue. So when its asked if a given profile will make ColorLife paper match PGPP, the answer has to be: under what light source? C.
