What is Ivory CMYK Color?

Ivory CMYK (Hex code: FFFDE9) Thumbnail

Ivory CMYK is (0, 0, 10, 0); meaning it has 10 of yellow and 0 of th erest - cyan, magenta and black. This translates to an approximate hex code #FFFDE9 and RGB values of (255, 253, 233). 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 ivory 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 ivory 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 ivory looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
