Label Printing: CMYK vs RGB [Video]


The Difference Between CMYK and RGB Colors

Whether your custom labels have one color or ten, it’s important that they’re designed in the right color settings. Label printing (and other types of printing) use what’s called ‘4 color process’ to produce full-color results. ‘4 color process‘ refers to CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and ‘key’ for black) inks that are printed in varying amounts to produce an array of colors. We often see, however, with newer label buyers that their label artwork has been designed in RGB (red, green, blue) colors which can cause some problems when it comes time to prepare the artwork for print. Check out our video to learn the difference between CMYK and RGB colors, and why they matter with custom label printing.
