Print Process?

Presumably printing anything digital implies the use of CMYK colours, so the budget benefit of overprinting one colour over another to achieve a third would all be negated as the artwork would need to be converted to CMYK to be printable digitally anyway?

Exactly, for quality look at litho printed pantone/spot colours...

Two colour printing still used a lot for stationery (letterheads etc) especially by bigger companies when they need to keep corporate colours accurate. Many pantones won't print exactly in CMYK.

You can be very creative in two colours - both with mixing and also things like Duotones.
