Sluggo,

 

There is no mention of any post processing before trying to print the images. Just "I like what I see on the computer, not the prints". Are you using Photoshop, Lightroom, or even the program that came with your camera to make any adjustments to the images? If you're not making changes, nothing's going to change. Without adjusting the white balance or temperature, the pictures will stay cold. Calibrating the screen may let the pictures look more like the prints but won't, by that alone, make any difference in what they look like when printed. Some image software lets you define what printer you are using and makes changes based on the nuances of a particular printer make/model (called a printer profile). So, are you using software and, if so, what program?

yes I made my adjustments in Photoshop, and liked what I saw on the screen, I did not like what was printed.

Problem could be though, Sluggo, that you get it right on your home system - but then take it to a professional centre and the colours look different. 

 

As the_dragon and bvanant suggest, it'd be wise to get your system calibrated first - and then maybe discuss your settings with whoever you are going to use for the final, big print.

Can I calibrate my system??  Where would I start?? TIA

I have an Epson printer, I'll check the model number, Paper? just basic 4x6 gloss at bought at wally's world.  My goal is to get it looking okay, and then take it someplace to have it blown up some so I can hang and frame.  Thanks

 

okay I checked, I have an Epson photo rx595 and I used HP premium glossy photo paper, inkjet, if that helps!
