Managing and controlling color is a major concern for the graphic communications and imaging industries. The purpose of this research was to identify the color differences (CIE L* a* b* values) that exist in the solid color areas of cyan, magenta, yellow, black, red, green, and blue (CMYKRGB) of an image displayed on the monitor vs. printer in a Color Management Workflow (CMW) to confirm the known process or CMW standards. Modern Industrial Technology Graphic Communications graduates with technical competencies in color management are, and will be, in greater demand than ever before in one of the largest industries in the United States. The findings of this research (using colorimetric data analysis) led to the conclusion that the application and implementation of color management techniques works and offers us more flexibility and control over colors and tonal values in reproducing color images.
