Photoshop CS and Adobe Gamma Question

    I just got a new monitor (Viewsonic A90F+) and a new printer (Epson R800). I
    used Adobe Gamma to make a monitor profile. When I compare the output from
    the printer to what I see on the monitor the colors are pretty near perfect
    but the brightness/contrast is much "duller" on the print. Now I realize
    that the printed picture is not (atleast IMHO) going to look as vibrant as
    the same image file on the screen, but there is a considerable difference
    between the two.
    Any suggestions (aside from purchasing a hardware calibration system - my
    better half would KILL ME after getting the printer and the monitor :) )?

    I have the ViewSonic Pro Series PF775b and the Epson R800. That combo
    works fine for me. Actually it works better than anything else I've ever

    I calibrated my monitor with Adobe Gamma. I use Photoshop CS, but don't
    apply color correction to the file. I let the printer driver do all the
    color correction with it's own ICM. I do use Adobe 98 color space as my
    default, but have plenty of files saved in ColorMatch color space. Both
    translate very well through the printer driver. Of course, I have
    downloaded the latest driver from Epson.

    With this I do wedding photographs all the time with no additional color
    correction. The customers love it.
