Color management and conversion
We do understand that color management could get problematic sometimes. This led us to develop several essential tools that we subject to highest industry standards. We strive for excellence and aim to make color conversion understandable for everyone.
The reason we focus on CMYK is very simple: The CMYK color process is the most widely used color printing process in the world. It is a subtractive color method, meaning that it starts with white paper and adds colors to it. The ink reduces the light that reflects off of the surface of the paper. This means that you need white paper to print in CMYK, because if you start with a colored piece of paper, then there would be no way to reduce the light and get black.
The CMYK color process has four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). These are called “base” or “primary” colors. CMYK colors are used when printing posters or photos on paper to ensure that the colors are as close to the original as possible. They are also used when printing magazines and brochures.
If you work in design industry then you will be needing CMYK colors time after time to produce high quality designs with deep and rich colors. The CMYK color space was created to give designers more accurate control over the colors they create on screen. On this website we offer a wide range of tools, specifically designed to make different standards and matching systems more compatible on your daily work. The ultimate goal here is to ensure that the colors are as close to the original as possible and the final outcome of your work is held up to the highest standards.
