(Never seen this question before right? Yeah, only about a hundred times...so I should know this....right.)

I don't do a lot of printing. Probably because of frustration in that I can't seem to get the displayed image and the printed image to look the same.

I have the Datacolor Spyder3 Pro to keep the display calibrated. I use an Epson printer and specify which paper I'm using so the paper profile is correct.

There's some connection I'm missing between the display profile and the printer profile.

I see this question a lot and the answer usually is "calibrate your display and your troubles are over" or something like that. But, that's only part of the answer, right? Where's the profile connection between display and printer?
