I'm starting out a small business as a print & web designer. I need to stay low on costs at this point. I did the first design on a laptop, got some money in advance, purchased an EIZO CS230 display and got some more clients after that. I've found a good printer and we will print some color samples prior to production run, that's not a problem, and it is absolutely necessary in my current conditions.
However, what so-so settings do you recommend for the display to get the most out of it? Contrast, color temperature, etc. I thought EIZO ColorNavigator would somewhat solve this for me but it turned up to be useless without calibration. I've set up the monitor manually to 5000K, brightness 80 cd/m2 and gamma 2.20 (just copied the default settings for Printing in ColorNavigator).
I will of course either hire somebody or solve it myself later, but money need to go somewhere else now.
