Hello. I am trying to create a rainbow glow around the number 3 to match the effect on the 0. Is there a simple way to do this in Illustrator? I wish I could just use the eyedropper tool to match it but it's not that easy! Also, is there a simple way to keep the colors vibrant when making this for print? Thank you for any advice you may have!

Vibrant colors and print don't usually go hand in hand.

You'll have to make sure your document and colors are in the CMYK setup.

If you are creating in RGB, the gamut will be larger than what CMYK printing can reproduce.

Use appearance pallete. Remove the fill at the character level, then go to type level and add these. I used gradient palette and set gradient along stroke, and choose one of the presets from the spectrum swatch library.

After you set what @MikeGondek posted (awesome method) - I would go to View menu>Overprint Preview to see what this would look like in CMYK Print.

As far as keeping the colors vibrant for CMYK print, I would do a bleed of the colors going into the black, so that you don't get pinholing or the colors fading and getting weaker going  into black. No one will notice the bleed, will actually make the black richer.

 

You should make a rich black of the black 3 shape, and skinny the CMY plates about .004" under the black. I recommend 60c 40MY 100K for your rich black. Not sure if this is litho/flexo/roto/dry offset/digital, but don't want you blasting ink using 100CMYK.
