This is how we do it: CMYK colors

27 Mar

Do you know what CMYK colors are? If you don’t you will find out, if you do you might find some tools that can help you.

The CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key -black-) is a subtractive color model, used in color printing. It is related with the four inks used to color print. In CMYK model works masking colors on a lighter, normally a white background. The ink reduces the light, it is called substractive because the ink works substracting the brightness from white.

In CMYK white is the colour of the suport, paper or background while black is the result of a full combination of colored inks. Well, normally to save money on ink, deeper black tones, dark colors are  created using black ink instead of the combination on CMY.
