Color printing has been around for a long time. Only in the last few years have electronic means been available to print in color at quality levels that begin to compare with commercial processes. With the advent of these new and high quality imaging devices, color management has come to the forefront as important technology. Several years ago several people, including the author, worked on color management technology. In the mid 80's, however, applications supporting color were few and far between and color management was considered only by the technically curious. This paper will review the aspects of color printers that are important in their integration into color systems.
