Move proposal[edit]

As far as I can find, CcMmYK is not a "color model". I'd say we should move the article to something like "CcMmYK printing", since the use of these six inks is stricting a printing hack. Any objections or alternative ideas? Dicklyon 05:37, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

This is not a color model. At most it is a variation on the CMYK color space, but is generally not used to encode color values independently from the printing process. Color is not generally communicated in or stored in this configuration and no image formats deal with color in this format. Color profiles built for these types of printers use a CMYK color mode. This is one of many ink configurations that are common to inkjet printers. Other version add additional "gray" inks or may add green or orange inks. Perhaps this could be added to the inkjet article since this print configuration is most commonly associated with various inkjet printers. --Hueman79 (talk) 18:52, 20 June 2015 (UTC)


The sources that were given in the article creation proposal were later removed as spam. We need to review these or find our sources, and use them to verify the article contents, and cite them where needed. Here they are:
