How 4 Color Process Printing (CMYK) Works 2019-01-09
What is 4 Color Process Printing?
Four color process printing is a system where a color image is separated into 4 different color values (called a color separation) by the use of filters and screens. This used to be done with photographic film on a graphic arts camera, but is usually done digitally with software now. The result is a color separation of 4 images that when transferred to printing plates and sequentially printed on a printing press with the colored inks cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow and black (the k in cmyk), reproduces the original color image. Most of the entire spectrum or gamut of colors are reproduced with just the four process ink colors. The four color printing process is universally used in the graphic arts and commercial printing industry for the reproduction of color images and text.

CMYK Process Printing Features
It uses the same 4 standardized base colors all the time (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)
Small dots of these colors are printed at different angles to create the printed image
The most widely used and cost effective color system in commercial printing
It's significantly cheaper than toner based or digital printing for larger quantity runs
The use of color in print increases readership and information retention.
Studies in a major publication revealed that the use of color increased readership by 40% or more. A university study showed a 65% increase in the retention of material when full color was used instead of black and white. See more research about why color matters in marketing.
