  • All colors can be precisely defined by their position in this space.
  • Lab model is a world-wide standard for all monitors & printers.

Colors specified in RBG

Colors printed in CMYK

Colored inks on paper cannot reproduce the bright, intense colors that are possible when mixing with light on a monitor. If your art is to be printed on paper, specify colors in CMYK mode to avoid “color shock” when your job comes back from the print shop.
