I'm creating a brand, and I used a color as the primary color.
When I went on to create a paper for print with that color, I copied the HEX value into Illustrator with CMYK mode and the color looks way off.
I know this is because of the difference in the color spectrum, and they can't be the same, but it looks too much different, it looks like other brand. Here's what I mean.
As you can see, the color gets converted to the second one, that looks more like Facebook than the color of my brand.
I'm aware of the color spaces and that some colors will look more different than other ones when used in CMYK.
My question is, will it look fine when I print it or will it look like the second one?
I have the following options:
- Print it anyway, hope it looks OK
- Use another CMYK color that looks more like mine
- Change the color to one that looks more similar in CMYK.
I'm kind of newbie with print so any help would be appreciated, thanks!
