CMYK Color Model

CMYK color model

The CMYK color model is the standard model which is used in color printing both professionally and at home. By combining inks in this color model a broad range of colors can be produced.

CMYK stands for Cyan Magenta Yellow and Black. The K used in the acronym stands for the German word "Kohle" meaning Coal.

Since four basic colors are used in this color model it’s often called four-color printing. For more information on the subject, please go to our CMY color model article that explains the CMY, RGB and RBY color models in more depth.
