What is Orchid CMYK Color?

Orchid CMYK (Hex code: C77EB5) Thumbnail

Orchid CMYK is (20, 60, 0, 0); meaning it has 20 of cyan, 60 of magenta and 0 of both yellow and black. This translates to an approximate hex code #C77EB5 and RGB values of (199, 126, 181). 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 orchid 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 orchid 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 orchid looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
