You need the default "display profile" to see on screen a close  
approximation of the "colours in the graphics file." I think a  
similiar "default profile" is already built into a colour printer. If  
you create your own "printer profile," you could adjust exactly to  
the paper and (re-fill) ink actually used. Therefore, to be exact and  
not just generic, you'd need to calibrate your screen, too.
