Color Separation Artwork split into component plates of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black in preparation for process printing (CMYK) or into the required number of plates for spot color printing.
Pantone Matching System (PMS) The most commonly used ink mixing and color reference system in offset printing.
Process Color Four inks (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, or CMYK ) printed on paper in layers of dots that combine to create the illusion of many more colors.
Subtractive Color Theory The use of 4 inks (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black) that absorb light wave-lengths that create colors. Used for process printing
