[Rizzeria flyer for its Open Printing Studio]
This is what I mean by colour separation:
The right image printed in black and the left image printed in red ended up like this (I like how the minor mis-registration of the hat creates an interesting 3D effect):

My 'zine was printed like this on both sides (so it can flip inside out) using teal, black and red. It ended up looking like this:
Another printing collective called Blood and Thunder exists, use a machine similar to the Rizzeria, except I believe it can print two colours at the same time. Mickie Quick works both at Blood and Thunder and The Big Fag Press.

We printed our Green Bans Art Walk flyer on Blood and Thunder:
Craig Kernow who works at Blood and Thunder (I haven't met him I've just seen a lot of these examples), has a signature technique where he colour separates a black and white image into approximately 50% another colour and tweaks around with the overlay in Photoshop. It produces a beautiful effect:
Performance Space's Publication POINT #3 April/ May 2011.
I tried to replicate the effect on the Rizz' here but I don't think I've quite got the technique down. If I ever meet Kernow, I'll be sure to ask him, but a magician may not reveal his secrets!
