How to get monitor and printer to match

A useful link, from Colour Wiki. My new LCD screen is way off, and I am seriously thinking to get a colour profiling device, like a Spyder or a Huey. Any experience from you guys and/or advice?

I have a Spyder2 Express and calibrate my LCD monitor every few months. The program reminds you to do so. It is a must if you want to share pics with others, enter digital competitions (e.g. BBC Wildlife), etc. Apparently, LCD monitors are far more stable than CRT so you only need to do this every few months or so.

However one can only expect the appearence of an image on a different monitor to match what you see if both monitors are calibrated using the same values for gamma and colour temperature.
