Four colour process / CMYK
: Printing in full colour. The inks used are translucent and can be overprinted to produce a huge variety of different colours and tints.

Spot colour printing: Refers to solid colours which are found in commercially obtainable colour ranges such as PantoneĀ®,used regularly for printing corporate colours on company stationery.

It is worth bearing in mind for future jobs that should you want to print in CMYK, the chosen PantoneĀ® may not have a suitable CMYK equivalent, which may in turn lead to the added expense of using a fifth plate.
