: I spotted some article which compliments on the University of Claria and tries to convince ppl that it is a good palce to obtain a quailty education but with some comment in the guest book saying that "Much more work is needed by the public relations department before this can be made into a four-color brochure and handed out to prospective student. ",what's a four-clor brochure ?and what do those four colors represent represent respectively?tks

A four-colour brochure is a brochure that shows true colour in its pictures by the use of the printer's inks - cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. A mix of any/all of these four colours will make all colours in real life.
Commenting that the department needs to do more work is probably because four-colour printing is the most expensive and would thus be wasted on inferior work.
