Definition: To reproduce full-color images, a typical printing press uses 4 colours of ink. The four inks are placed on the paper in layers of dots that combine to create the illusion of many more colours. CMYK refers to the 4 ink colours used by the printing press. C is cyan (blue), M is magenta (red), Y is yellow, and K is black, the key plate or keyline colour.
A mistake often made when submitting artwork for 4-color printing is not converting the images to the CMYK colour space. This is needed so that the file can be separated into the four colours (see example) so that a separate printing plate can be made for each of the colours.
