Firstly i cant find an appropriate forum, so I'll ask this question here in case someone might know the answer. I'm very new to design so please bear with me. I am creating a set of business cards and one of our corporate colors is vibrant orange (#FF3300).
Using the MS Paint program the color appears as expected according to our corporate guidelines. However when i try to recreate the colors in Illustrator the colors doesn't appear correct.
I also get a "out of gamut warning".
I am using a CMYK Color mode to create the business cards and the equivalent CMYK code is C0 M75 Y100 K0 but this appears off as well.
How can i achieve the desired color accuracy using CMYK? (Attached is a screen shot of the difference)
It seems that my original CMYK conversion was off, but still with the update C0 M80 Y100 K0 it still appears off:
