I lost my calibration sheet. What can I do?

For optimal performance, calibration sheets are strongly recommended and can be purchased here.

If you need to calibrate in the interim, you may use a plain white sheet of 8×11 ½ sheet of paper. For card scanners, fold the sheet lengthwise to fit the scanner. No not cut the paper.

Please note this calibration may not produce optimal image quality.
