Font loses visibility and saturation in CMYK mode


Hello there,

I’m having an issue with my created Font and CMYK mode. I created a font specifically designed for card and boardgame related text and quicker icon implementation, they look great in RGB but when using the characters in CMYK they lose visibility and saturation. (See example).

I’ve re-uploaded them as PNG’s in CMYK mode, the originals look fine as you can also see in the example, but when I apply them in text form this issue occurs. Does anyone an idea on how to solve this? I’d highly appreciate it.

Kind regards,


The color font format OpenType-SVG does not support CMYK colors - only RGB - so in such case there isn’t much you can do for now besides picking RGB colors that will match after CMYK conversion.
