Each printing color requires one machine run. So we ask you to only use 1 to 2 colors. The second color (and next ones if necessary) is billed additionally.
Also, gradients are impossible in letterpress because the letters (or the cliché) are inked uniformly over the entire surface.
It is possible to print in any color with one exception: white. White typography gives a very chalky rendering and is therefore strongly not recommended. If this is the desired rendering, then we are asking for a body of at least 48.
Finally, it is not possible to print with a light color on dark paper. Indeed, the ink is not covering the paper. If you want to print on dark paper, we offer metallic colors: silver, gold or copper, which are covering.
