Default Printing Questions of Newbishness Nature

Hi there,

I am putting together a university magazine using In-Design. While I have always been interested in things 'print', I have never designed anything that has had to be printed professionally. Anyway, charged with my first ever DTP project that will meet the press, I went to the university publisher, and in a foreign language, I was told that my budget would be enough for a '4-colored cover and blended colored printing for the inside pages'.

My burning questions right now are how do those color options impact on my design choices? Presumably a 4-color cover pretty much means full color. Is that right? And does 'blended' mean 2 colors?

I hope some of my questioning makes some sense to someone...somewhere.

Thanks a bunch.
