I would start with finding out how Gracia prints exactly: what
software, whether color management is on etc.

A quick tip: if you print via PhotoPrint [1] and have an ICC profile
for the paper/ink combination for the best color match, you can use
"Warm/Cool" effect to make an image look warmer. You can also preview
the effect on display without printing.
