Can colours be combined in Letterpress?

Colours cannot be combined in the same way they are with Offset and Digital output.

Colours should be solid. Gradients, shades and colour combining can be done using colour half-tones, however this is not recommended. This is a complex process that a designer will need to set up for you.

Ink colours can be "overprinted" on to each other – however as we cannot test every ink colour, the combined colour can be somewhat unknown, so it is not a recommended setup.
