What are the differences between RGB, CMYK and Pantone?

RGB, CMYK and Pantone are all color models that are used in different ways for printing and graphic design. CMYK is mainly used in the printing process, while RGB is used for digital displays such as computer screens and televisions. Pantone is a specific color matching system that uses swatches to identify colors. In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between these three color models!

What is RGB? #

RGB is an additive color model used for digital images or for color monitor displays. Colors are clearly defined by values indicating the combination of the three primary colors. RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue. The RGB model is used for digital displays because it can be easily translated into light. The downside of RGB is that it can be difficult to print colors accurately using CMYK printing processes.

What is CMYK? #

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. CMYK is also known as process color or four color. CMYK is a subtractive color model, which means that it begins with white and then the colors are added until black is reached. The CMYK model is used in printing because it allows for a wide range of colors to be printed. The downside of CMYK is that it can be difficult to match colors between different devices, such as monitors and printers.

What is Pantone Color? #

The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a useful but somewhat inaccurate way of describing colors. Pantone colors often are specified for a company’s color profile and logotype, to ensure consistency, and are very commonly used when printing packaging.
