I have a logo that was done with RGB colors, now I have to work with this logo to do something for printing purpuses, the problem is that in the RGB version of the logo I have a shade of green I cannot reproduce with CMYK... How do I do it?
I googled up a bit and found some CMYK values that would create a simmilar green, close enough, the problem is when I put those values in Illustratot(%C %M %Y %K) I don't get the color I am supposed to... what am I missing ?
I have an image to illustrate my problem :
The green I want to create in CMYK is the first green, when I put those values there I get the second green you see there, when I print this image will I get something close to the first green ? ...And this is simply how you view it on screen, a bit darked and washed up ? pom pomm pom pommmmmm
If I open up my logo in Photoshop and go to View > Gamut Warning the green part of my logo shows up in grey, to ged rid of the grey I lower the saturation, the problem is lowering the saturation ruins my nice bright neon green...
If anyone around here printed neon green, how did you do it ?
I found on some forum someone saying that Pantone 802 C will print neon green, I looked it up, selected it and on screen it looks worse than my second green in the sample image... and anyway, putting a pantone color in a PDF that will be printed on a regular simple printer is any good ?
[The material the logo will be printed on will be downloaded by various users over the internet in PDF format and will be printed by various home normal hobby printers, so I will not have the control over that at all, I just want a green that will print neon/led green or something closer on a regular hobby printer, not in some fancy color lab/printer. Its imposible isn't it ?]
