Greetings Fellow Designers

I want to print a vivid Cyan for a Business Card. Its hex code is #04f1d7. It was sent by my client to me and it was designed in RGB. Now the client is stuck on this option to print, while after converting to CMYK it becomes dull.

But I am getting as image below. Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

There was already a question like this on this site but I am looking to catch a straw.

Short answer—You can't.

Forget about the RGB color, use a spot color or pick a new CMYK color, the RGB color you have doesn't exist in a CMYK color space. You should always be designing anything destined for print in CMYK.

  • Thank you very much for response, I got it sorted, one of my friend told me that fluorescent colors will be helpful in this regards. Thanks again.. Jun 14, 2016 at 10:16
