RGB (Red, Green, Blue)


RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue, the primary colours in the additive colour model used for digital displays, including computer monitors and television screens.

When these colours are combined, they create a broad spectrum of colours.

However, RGB colours often need to be converted to the CMYK colour model for printing, as the two systems have different colour ranges or gamuts.

It's crucial to understand that some RGB colours cannot be precisely replicated in print, leading to possible colour shifts.
