What's the difference?

RGB and CMYK are two different styles of color mixing and have their own uses.

RGB is the primary color display of digital devices and refers to three colors (Red, Green, and Blue), creating a more vibrant color spectrum than CMYK. Printed artworks designed in RGB will appear more subdued than how they look on a display without color correction.

CMYK combines and layers four ink pigment colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) to create colors. Our printers print in the CMYK color space. Colors in the extreme visible spectrum, such as neon colors, are not printable. Do not use such colors to ensure the most precise print.

Pro Tip: Create the design in a CMYK color profile or ​CMYK-safe RGB from the beginning.
