Understanding Colour

When you talk to a designer they may throw groups of letters at you when they talk about colour but do you know what it means and the difference it makes? Here are the basics. CMYK. Cyan Magenta Yellow and Black. This is the standard colour format when working with print. Think of your printer at home. Most come with 4 cartridges, 1 of each of these colour, and combining them allows you to make any colour you want to print. Anything white is just let without ink. And in case you were wondering 'K' Stands for 'Key', In traditional plate printing the black plate was the 'Key' plate to which all the other colours were aligned. It is also the letter of the alphabet not used by any other colours
