Another way using :constants is to either interpolate the BOLD, RED, RESET, whatever into the string using the @{ [ ... ] } construct or make them separate items in the printf with their own %s format specifier. Remember that the constants return ANSI control character sequences that will "take" some of the format width in the first method. That doesn't matter on the first line but would become trickier for the column items of the second line.

use strict; use warnings; use Term::ANSIColor qw{ :constants }; printf qq{%s\nName:%s%-9s%-41s%s%-14s%s%-6s%s\n}, qq{@{ [ BOLD ] }Dog record@{ [ RESET ] }}, RED, q{DC}, q{Silkenswift Blaze of Chaos}, GREEN, q{LCM2 SORC GRC}, BLUE, q{CD}, RESET;

I hope this is helpful.
