Colours and Print: Whats the difference between RGB, CMYK and Pantone℗ Colours?
RGB stands for Red, Green, Blue. These are the colours you see when you look at images on your computer screen or at photos taken with your digital camera. The colours are made up of a combination of these three hues. If you want to print an image from your computer, you will have to convert it to CMYK.
CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black and in general, CMYK is the type of colour that you find on most printed materials. CMYK is also called four-colour process printing. In 4-colour printing (process colour). All of the colours you see are made up of combinations of dots in these four colours. Most home grade, consumer & industrial printers use CMYK inks colours to reproduce images. If you want to print very bright colours, metallic colours or other special effects colours, it is best to use Pantone colours (Screen Printing / Litho Printing).
Pantone® Colours refer to a colour matching system (Pantone® Matching System or PMS), also often known as spot colours. Pantone® colours are used by professional print shops around the world. They are a set of standardized and universal colours created by the printing industry in order to help designers, print shops and customers understand exactly what colours they are going to print. Pantone® colours are pre-mixed colours with published color formulas. Every Pantone® colour is referenced in a Pantone® swatch book and each colour has a number corresponding to it. Using a Pantone®colour ensures a perfect and consistent colour match.
