The paper I want to print on is not listed in my printer driver, can I still use it? Do I need an ICC profile?

The short answer is yes. Each printer manufacturer creates basic paper settings and names them according to their branded products. Using a similar setting will in general provide a good starting point. Most printer drivers also include advanced tools to adjust the ink and color to effectively create your own settings. ICC profiles do this work for you so we recommend finding or creating a customer profile for the best results.
