doesn't printers make gray by mixing cyan, magenta and yellow?

@hankg

so if yellow is out, you can have cyan, blue or magenta xD

@mk I would doubt that. Although you can hypothetically make black with CMY it is not a "true black" hence in offset printing/digital printing anything gray/black will be put on the black plate. Gray is accomplished in that case with changing the dot size in the halftone screen. I would imagine printers use the black toner/ink exclusively for that as well.
