I'd like to have a color scheme for printing plots, that would look 'nice'. So, I need as set of, say, 10 easily distinguishable colors that would stay different when printed.

If I use only four CMYK colors they are easily distinguished. If I print ten, like blue, light blue, green, lime..., they may turn out very similar.

What tool (something like Adobe Kuler) can I use?

    Lots of other similar questions here. Search 'kuler' and see for yourself. – Lucian Jun 6 '17 at 8:44
  • @Lucian The main words are 'for printing'. If I use only CMYK colors, for example, they are easily distinguished. If I print 10 like blue, light blue, green, lime..., they may turn out very similar. – homocomputeris Jun 6 '17 at 8:51

    You should turn gamut warning on and simulate the output. – joojaa Jun 6 '17 at 11:23

I have found a suitable tool: www.colorbrewer2.org Initially designed for maps, it has print-friendly option.

There is a scheme used by printers called "CMYK" test. They look like this http://www.iso12647solution.com/Colorsource_free_CMYK_SRA3_test_forms.htm
