Default Screen colour V's Print Colour

Hi folks,

usually for going to print i make a 15 x 15 sample (1 x A4) print of swatch colours (font/bg colours) before i send the final file to the printers. from this, I pick the colours i prefer and use these in my final document.

how do you guys know what colour the final print will come out? do you use any tools to optimize your screen prior to finishing the job for last minute tweaks? can you share your process for this please?

flip
(always looking for a better way to do the job!)
