If the project makes use of only one, two, or three colors (including black) you should probably use spot colors, such as those offered by PANTONE. Spot colors use a different ink for each color, and each color requires its own color separation. If your budget is limited, consider the following:
• obtaining a two-color look by printing on colored paper and using only one spot color
• using tints (percentages) of spot colors to create shadows or highlights, thus giving the impression of a broader color range
