What is CMYK?

The CMYK color model is a subtractive method used in printing where four colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) are combined to create all other colors. Mixing equal amounts of cyan, magenta, and yellow produces a rich black. It differs from RBG because RGB is additive and thus when equal amounts of those colors are mixed you end up with white.
