We designers can't print designs with accurate colors without wasting 5-10 sheets for color corrections...

What I did was use software calibration and my eyes to get as close as I could with that method (all free stuff too).
I then took some sample pics, and put them on the monitor, and held the same pics up next to the monitor on my D90 (from what I hear that display is calibrated) and further tweaked it until the monitor and D90 images looked the same.
About as good as I am going to get right now.

This means that anyone viewing my image isn't seeing it as I see it anyway. I think that as long as my monitor is pretty close to correct it will be good enough. But if you do print it's really important to calibrate for your printer or you will be wasting a lot of prints.
