You don't say what OS you are using.  But you can get profiles for any printer 
if you are willing to pay the price to get custom profiles made.   There is 
someone named Alastair M. Robinson who is active in the open source area that 
has an affordable custom printer profiling service.   You can find more 
information here http://www.blackfiveservices.co.uk/profiling.shtml.  You can 
NOT expect to get correct results in a color managed work flow if you don't 
have at least an OK profile for your printer model, the paper you are using, 
your printer driver and the driver settings you are using.  If you are on 
Windows or a Mac you may be able to get OK profiles from your paper vendor.
