What’s the best colour mode to use for printing?

When developing and saving your artwork files for printing, always choose CMYK as your colour mode.

CMYK represents colour as it is seen in a physical space where light is reflected onto a surface.

While we can still print files which are submitted in RGB colour, the results will always be less consistent than CMYK. This is because RGB colour is based on illuminated light as exists in a monitor.
