They affect the quality, color of the finished product and even the price of printing, so today, let’s learn the above concepts with The World of Printing!
To know what 1-color printing is, we need to understand 4-color printing
Normally, any color printer will use 4 basic ink colors – also known as CMYK. 4-color printing is printing on this CMYK color system. CMYK is an English acronym in the color system, including the following colors:C – Cyan is cyanM – Magenta is a red roseY – Yellow is yellowK – Keyline/Black is blackWhen printing, these 4 colors will be mixed together in certain proportions, creating any color or design shape. Therefore, in printing technology, the most common color format in graphic design files should be in the CMYK color system or PANTONE.Printing 1 color costs lower than full colors (CMYK). However it does not mean that you can print any 1 color to get this affordable cost, the single printed color has to be of these 4 colors C, M, Y, K, ie:100% cyan – SIZE100% rose red – USA100% yellow – Y100% black – USIf you do not print in 1 of these 4 colors, it will still be counted as printing more than 1 color (full colors). For example, you want to print a bright red color, this color is a mix of pink and yellow, that means you’re printing more than 1 color.
