RGB, PMS, CMYK, what exactly is the situation like?

Enough ideas for a beautiful design. Getting started! With Adobe InDesign, Photoshop or maybe even Illustrator. The correct settings must be determined beforehand, as well as the correct colour setting. But what is the right colour setting? PMS, CMYK or RGB?

PMS stands for Pantone Matching System. Each colour has a unique code, allowing each printer to reproduce exactly the same colour (if the material is also the same). PMS colours are mainly used in house style printing: after all, it is important that a company’s logo is the same on all statements. PMS colours can only be used for offset printing. On digital printing presses, the coated colours can be approached very well.
PMS range
In addition to a colour range for coated paper, there is also a colour range for uncoated paper. This has everything to do with the fact that the same colours look different on different types of paper. So choose the right Pantone colours for the right paper type.
Rule of thumb: a design with 1 or 2 colours by offset printing? Then PMS is a good option. More than 2 colours? Then choose CMYK.

When we print in full colour we do so with CMYK colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK. With these 4 colours almost any colour can be reached. The printing press mixes the different ink colours, whereby the percentage of a certain colour determines how the final colour becomes. For example, a green colour is built up from Cyan and Yellow. And red is made up of Magenta and Yellow.

RGB is not used for printed matter, but for statements that are shown on monitors such as the screen of your iPad or computer.
RGB is the abbreviation for the primary colours red, green and blue. 6 so-called ‘hexadecimal’ (numbers) indicate which colour is involved. The first 2 digits determine the red, the second 2 digits the green and the last 2 digits the blue color.
In order to make a file formatted in RGB colours suitable for printing, it must be converted to CMYK. It is best to change the color profile to CMYK in the original InDesign, Photoshop or Illustrator file.
