My experience is that when using a printer with OEM ink, the readily-available paper profiles are quite good. If you're seeing poor results I would review the process you're following to print -- from ensuring you're using the correct profile to having any additional printer color options disabled to reviewing the result with soft proofing and checking for out of gamut warnings. Manufacturer paper profiles should provide good results.
If you're not seeing results you like, I suggest you look for a different paper. (Similarly, if you can't find a profile for a given manufacturer's paper, look for one you can find.) Some inks do seem to work better on certain papers, or at least they achieve different results. Another paper and its profile may be slightly more accurate and give you the result you want, also.
If you're not able to find a paper with a readily available profile I recommend having one made. Many companies, such as Dry Creek Photo, will make profiles for you -- you print out a specific test target and snail mail it to them, and they use that target to build a profile for you. It's cheaper than buying the hardware to do it yourself and will certainly yield a better result than what you can achieve with a low-end product like SpyderPrint.
In fact, based on my experience (admittedly, years old), a low-end product like SpyderPrint may not give you better results than the manufacturer's profile. One of the most obvious differences between high- and low-end products is the test target: one will have a few dozen color patches to read, the other will have hundreds or thousands of color patches. Which of the following do you think provides the opportunity to create a more accurate profile?
Additionally I would not be surprised if the colorimeter in the Spyder kit couldn't even differentiate many of the patches on the large target. That's why high end tools use a spectrophotometer instead -- for far greater accuracy, which of course also yields better results.
Since we're going down this rabbit hole, I also suggest considering the age of your ink. Unless you're going through ink quickly (replacing them within, say, a few weeks to a month), I would also recommend reprofiling the paper/ink combo pretty regularly. The ink colors do shift. You should also consider your viewing environment when critically reviewing color, as well, to be aware of the color of the light you're viewing in, any color bias your location may cause, and the metamerism your ink/paper combo display.
