Blues do tend to come out a bit darker but I generally get an overall good
match to screen with vibrant colours. I use Adobe 1998 on a PC. Assuming
your using a PC, Ian Lyons has a good guide see:
basically assuming you have photoshop colour management set up correctly
download and install the ICC media profile. This is a direct link to the PC
then I print using Photoshop using source space set to "document" and Print
space set to "Epson Stylus 1270 <paper type>" and intent "perceptual". I
set the printer driver mode to "custom" and select "advanced settings" and
select "no colour adjustment". I also set the "media type" as appropriate
but I don't think it matters when using no colour adjustment.
