Think Before You Print: CMYK Green & Red

A quick note that should be especially helpful as Christmas approaches: always remember to do your digital design work in CMYK color mode. Some RGB colors–especially bright neon greens–don’t have a CMYK equivalent and come out dull in printing.

If you must use neon green in your design, some print shops can spot-print Pantone PMS colors on CMYK designs. Of course, this will increase the total cost of your print run.
