How do i convert NCS to CMYK

Hi -

I’m new here, and not sure if this thread is in the right spot ;p

I have a job to design for litho printing… but the client has given me NCS colour values which i now need to convert to CMYK…



Thanks … I hope someone has some advice here!

I suppose the Color Science forum would be the correct one to use - but no worries, this will do. :slight_smile:

I did a quick search in Wikipedia and found an article on NCS with some external links, including calculators and a viewer for NCS color:

This should at least allow you to convert to RGB values, and from there you can define what kind of RGB you’re using and convert to a certain flavor of CMYK using Photoshop or ColorPicker.
