CMYK - What is it?

It is difficult to explain what full-colour printing in London is without defining perhaps the most basic term in printing, CMYK. CMYK stands for colour model, consisting of four basic colours of printing ink. The name comes from the first letters of its colour names; cyan, magneta, yelllow and key colour.

The remaining colours are obtained by combining CMYK colours, in proportions from 0% to 100%. They are precisely defined by the percentage of primary colours used. However, it is worth remembering that all kinds of monitors use RGB colour palette - that is why the printout will never be identical to what we see on the monitor screen.

With the SMYK palette you can get thousands of colors, but you will not obtain all the colors found in nature.
An interesting fact is that when printing in full colour in Bristol it is possible to add an additional colour to the CMYK palette, the so-called special colour - for example silver or gold.
