Things to Note

If you are trying to install profiles for a Mitsubishi 9550DW it is important to note that this printer has two printing modes, (Fine and Superfine), and we supply two profiles for this printer. You must ensure that you are using the Fine profile for Fine mode printing and the Superfine profile for Superfine printing. Some printing software packages will allow you to make these changes on the fly in the program you are using but may not save your choice. The above method of changing the profile in the driver will save your changes until you decide to change them later.

FREE: ICC Profiles are provided free of charge when you purchase a printer from us.
