What is Gunmetal CMYK Color?

Gunmetal CMYK (Hex code: 303434) Thumbnail

Gunmetal color in the CMYK model has the values (70, 60, 60, 60). Thus, there is 70 of cyan and 60 of magenta, yellow and black. This translates to an approximate hex code #303434 and RGB values of (48, 52, 52). The CMYK system is the foundation of color printing technology that runs both large industrial and small desktop printers. Colors are created using only four inks - cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and black (K). Please understand that gunmetal CMYK as it looks on the screen may not be reproduced exactly on printed paper not only because of the two different color models - hex and CMYK - but also because of the quality of the printer, the paper and the four inks.

Note: The hex code for gunmetal CMYK mentioned on this page is only an approximation; it has been calculated from the CMYK values. Hexadecimal and RGB color values are for screen and digital media while the CMYK model is used for printing and, therefore, the conversion of one to another is not perfect. Also, the way gunmetal looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
