The CMYK colour model (process colour, four colours) is a subtractive colour model, used in colour printing and is also used to describe the printing process itself. Inks used in CMYK printing come in 4 colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black.
Printing with CMYK works in part through a process called halftoning (also called screening) allows for less than full saturation of the primary colours. Tiny dots of each primary colour are printed at different angles to create the printed image and text. With halftoning, a full continuous range of colours can be produced.
If it takes more than 3 colours to achieve a print reproduction than 4-colour printing will probably be most economical. CMYK printing is the most widely used and cost-effective colour system in commercial printing.
Since the colours are a mix of dots over other dots, there is a good chance that colour will vary from printer to printer and job to job. Ching Teng’s colour management system can display good colour quality in different substrates and keeping colour consistent across different printing processing.
