RGBi is an acronym for the three colors used to create the broad array of colors displayed on an electronic monitor. The three primary additive colors are Red, Green and Blue. RGB colors are used for electronic displays but do not reproduce well in print. RGB images should be converted to CMYKi before your files are sent to the printer or it will be done during the pre-press process.
