in thread How many colors does a rainbow have?

I have fond memories of pink.

A customer's newspaper had spot red but they often used pink in their design and therefore three plates were output instead of two - useless. "Don't use pink, we haven't got pink. What you think is pink is 50% red, use that instead." The other 50% being white.

We referred to pink as a tint, A hue produced by the addition of white.

Also, the colour was named after the flower, not the other way around. Pink described the frilly edges as in pinking shears.
