    Don't know about the U.K., but here we have companies such as Borrow Lenses. Perhaps they have a European branch.

    NO, but can suggest the next best thing. Link below is to a service that will provide reasonably priced custom profiles. If you only have a few papers to be profiled will be pretty economical. Plus you can interact with him.

    Disclaimer - I have not used his profiling service, but he has helped me with color reproduction questions at no charge. To me he appears helpful and competent. Your mileage may vary.

    The advantage is that if you only have a few papers it is more economcal to buy profiles from a reputable profile maker rather than invest in the cost of the spectrophotometer plus the learning curve etc.

    Many of the reputable suppliers will interact with you and give some degree of technical support or customisation if you need it.

    To each his own...
