CMYK is a short term for Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Key (black). It is a standard color model used in offset printing for full-color documents. It is used in printing newspapers, magazines, and other products. It can subtract the brightness of the white or light background through partial or full-color layering. This printing system uses black ink over a gray color layer because it is difficult to mix black from cyan, magenta, and yellow.
