Problems in Color Printing Unpredictable colors Using color in publication is not as easy as it seems. For color printing, the greatest problem is that the color you see on a screen is not the color you get on paper. Very often, the printed color on paper looks quite different from what you see on a screen. Because of the different color models in monitor and printing system, these color models do not cover the same color gamut. In fact, some bright colors that display beautifully on screen like vivid orange and bright green cannot be printed on paper. On the other hand, some colors that look fascinating on paper such as yellowish green or grayish blue may look oddly on a screen. As a result, you may have to re-select it many times until you finally get the colors close to what you want. These color problems may not be an issue if your job is to produce a few signs or brochures from your inkjet or color laser printers. Because you can print them repeatedly until you finally get the satisfied result. For a large-scale printing, we need to send our artwork to a favorite commercial printer for offset printing. Normally, offset color printing uses 4 process colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK (CMYK). Here comes the real problem, the color from offset printing is significantly different from our in-house printing, unfortunately.

Too many color choices Although you can choose unlimited colors from millions of colors in the color spectrum, sometimes these too many color choices are the problem. You may not know which colors are suitable for your design. In addition, you cannot be sure that the colors you have chosen will go well together. Moreover, you still need to check the outcome of those colors in the final print. 4

Problems in Web Colors

R

G

B

Color variation Color variation in websites is not a serious problem. Because designers and readers are both using the same kind of equipment, monitor screen, to display websites. Therefore, a slight color difference is not notable compared to printing system that uses a totally different color model. Monitors that we use to display websites have different quality and capability in displaying colors. Therefore, colors that appear on each screen will be slightly different, especially the brightness and contrast of colors. Color variation also depends mainly on the color setting of each monitor. Thus, if you select a proper color combination for your web site, most users will see those colors the way you have designed.

Vast selections of color It is fairly difficult for designers to pick a few colors from millions of colors in the color spectrum. In addition, they may worry about interaction and harmony of colors they have chosen. Furthermore, garish colors can easily annoy readers while a bad choice of color scheme may result in a poor image for the website.

;;

Get the right colors: Because you choose colors from the real output that uses standard four-color process printing, you can be sure that you will get almost the same color as the sample. On the other hand, choosing colors from what you see on screen alone may result in unpredictable colors on paper.

;;

Save time: Instead of spending an hour to choose colors randomly, you can quickly select a proper color scheme for your work in a minute. In addition, you will know a lot about general meanings and implications of all color schemes.

;;

Experience numerous color samples: In each color scheme, you can see several sample text colors used in the title and descriptions. In addition, you will experience many sample uses of text color on each color as a background. You also have the opportunity to explore many color combinations and notice the reaction between colors as well as harmonious and contrasting effects of colors in a combination.

;;

Get a customer agreement: For professional designers, you can bring this book to your customers and let them choose their preferred color combination. This way, you and your customer will both have a clear idea of what the final colors will look like, before you begin to design your work. This will also save you from a customer dispute about unsatisfied colors.

Comparing a color scheme for print (left) and a color scheme for the web (right). ;;

The Color Schemes for Print will show color values in CMYK model while the Color Schemes for the Web will use RGB and HEX (Hexadecimal) models. The RGB and Hex values can be used in web pages, web graphics, Flash animation, PowerPoint, game, multimedia presentation, and any kind of digital works that display on screen.

;;

The Color Schemes for the Web, the slightly modified version of the Color Schemes for Print, has more vibrant and contrasting effects for optimum display. Therefore, the Color Schemes for the Web will look remarkably beautiful and impressive on screen. INTRODUCTION

Color Strips C

K

Color strips are color palettes that come with CMYK values. You can apply the CMYK values of these color palettes to your design right away. In this area, there are 15 color strips arranged vertically from top to bottom. The close placement of color palettes shows relation between colors, especially a group of colors with a slight different tone. Basically, these color strips are divided into 5 groups in ordere of their color relevance. In each group, there are three colors that are typically arranged from dark to light tone of a particular color. Still, there is an exception in some color schemes, depending on the desired feeling of the color scheme. Anyway, you can use all colors in each group together for a monotone effect.

Color Palettes on White Background Color palettes are divided into 5 groups just similar to the color strips. In each group, color palettes are arranged vertically from top to bottom with a white background.

Color Palettes on Black Background This area presents color palettes in the same arrangement as the above area, except that they are now on black background.

Color Text over Color Background This area experiments with text color over color palettes as a background. These 5 groups of background colors are arranged in order from top to bottom. When using color text directly over a color background, these colors should have enough contrast to each other so it can be read easily. In addition, the combination of colors should be able to express the feeling or convey the meaning of messages we want to communicate.

Color Scheme Characteristics This area itself also demonstrates a few uses of colors with text

75 Color Schemes for Print

cmyk

;; All color schemes fall into 8 main categories: Popular, Colortones, Pastels, Happy, Relax, Intensive, Artistic, and In trend. Within a category, color schemes are organized in sequence by their color relevance. ;; The CMYK values can be applied to any publication including brochure, poster, sign, book, card, and advertisement. ;; In each color scheme, many forms of color samples are carefully constructed in order to demonstrate several applications of colors. They are the Color strips, the Color on white and black backgrounds, the Color text over color background, and three types of the Color combinations.

Creating a color swatch using CMYK values in professional graphic design program such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign There are two ways to create a new color swatch:

q Enter CMYK values in Color panel then

click the New Swatch icon at the bottom of Swatches panel.

CMYK Values CMYK values are the mixture of four process colors in offset printing: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK. Each color has a value between 0–100%. In offset printing process, the result colors come from the mixing of these four colors in proportion as specify.

w Press ALT key and click the New Swatch icon at the bottom

of Swatches panel to open a New Swatch dialog box. Enter a Swatch name and CMYK values in appropriate fields then click OK button.

75 Color Schemes for the Web

rgbH; hex

;; All color schemes fall into 8 main categories, similar to the Color Schemes for Print. ;; These color schemes specify color value in RGB and Hexadecimal (HEX) models, ready for use in web pages, web graphics, Flash, PowerPoint, game, multimedia presentation, and other on-screen media. ;; The Color Schemes for the Web is the slight modified version of the Color Schemes for Print. These web color schemes have more vibrant and contrasting effects for optimum display. Therefore, the Color Schemes for the Web will look remarkably beautiful and impressive on screen.

,

Creating a color swatch using RGB or HEX values in professional web design programs like Adobe Dreamweaver and Fireworks.

Fireworks: Enter RGB or Hexadecimal (HEX) values in

,

Colors Mixer panel then click on empty space at the bottom of Swatch panel to create a new swatch. You can click at the option button on Colors panel to select RGB or Hexadecimal color model.

RGB Values RGB Values are the mixing of three primary colors: Red, Green, and Blue. Each color has a value between 0–255.

HEX Values Actually, HEX values are RGB values in the Hexadecimal model, indicated by the # sign directly in front of the color code. An HEX color value is displayed in two-number or two-character format: 0-9 and A-F. We can clearly separate them in another format like #RR-GG-BB. For example, the code #FF7435 of an orange color is the mixing of Red=FF, Green=74, and Blue=35 in proportion as specified.

Dreamweaver: Enter Hexadecimal color values such as #FF7435 in a color field. Do not forget the # sign at the beginning of the code. The characters are not case-sensitive so both capital land lower case letters can be used. Therefore, either #ddeeff or #DDEEFF is acceptable.

Book Versions RGB on Paper For the paper version of this book, the RGB color values are converted into CMYK values before printing. Consequently, all colors in the Color Schemes for the Web will appear slightly different from what you see on a screen.

RGB on Screen We recommend that you refer to the ebook version of this book in PDF format because the RGB values have not been converted into CMYK values. Therefore, colors in the e-book will look almost the same in your work.

The Creative Color Schemes comes in two versions; paper and ebook. If your works are any kind of publication, please refer to the paper version as your primary reference. On the other hand, if you are working on web design or any on-screen media, please refer to the e-book version as your primary source.

The Paper Version The paper version of this book shows real CMYK color samples on paper. The books are printed with high-quality process inks on 130-gsm glossy art paper. While the CTP (computer-to-plate) process increases plate quality as well as printing quality, the adhesive stitch binding ensures heavy-duty use.

The eBook Version The ebook version of this book is in PDF format. It should be the primary reference for all digital onscreen works. The unconverted RGB colors in the Color Schemes for the Web show real RGB color sample on screen.

Color Variation One important thing we cannot overlook is color variation. Even though we use the same color values in our work, there is always the possibility of color variation in the final output. The major factors that affects the final color are paper type, printer type, ink quality, and printing process. In fact, many factors come directly from inconsistencies in printing process itself. In the same print run, colors at the beginning, the middle, and the end of process may not be exactly the same. In addition, printing in different print runs may result in slightly different colors. Moreover, it is possible that each commercial printer will produce colors that are noticeably different. So, make sure that you carefully control every related factor in printing as much as possible. If all goes well, you will finally get the expected colors. 12
