Lesson 6. Working with Color > Creating a spot color

Creating a spot color

This publication will be printed by a commercial printer using the standard CMYK color model, which requires four separate plates for printing—one each for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. However, the CMYK color model has a limited range of colors, which is where spot colors come in handy. Because of this, spot colors are used to create additional colors beyond the range of CMYK or to create consistent, individual colors such as those used for company logos.

In this publication, the design calls for a spot ink not found in the CMYK color model. You’ll now add a spot color from a color library.
