CMYK (short for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key) refers to a process that’s most commonly used in printing and design. Each color is laid down separately to form a color image, which you might recognize from having to replace the ink cartridges in your inkjet printer at home. Since these colors can be blended to form a large range of varying hues, De Atramentis created a line of mixable inks specifically for this purpose. Jane Blundell has a very informative blog post on how to mix the Document Inks here. Enjoy some of our favorite picks inspired by these four colors!
