Color Gamut

The total range of colors that can be reproduced with a given set of inks (or other colorants), on a given paper stock, and on a given printing press (or other color output) configuration. Also known simply as gamut. Many digital color systems or software programs utilize an out-of-gamut alarm to alert users that a particular displayed color cannot be output.
