Traditional Four Color Process - To produce full-color images, typical printing presses use 4 specific colors of ink (see below). The four inks are placed on the paper in layers of dots or solids that combine to create the illusion of many more colors. CMYK refers to the 4 ink colors used by the printing press: C is cyan (blue), M is magenta (red), Y is yellow, and K is black, the key plate or keyline color.


Any combination of colors can be used. Single-color, Two-Color and Three-Color options are available also. They can be a combination of any of the 4 color process inks or colors picked from a standard PMS swatch.
