I've got an inkling of how to separate the easier, solid color designs, but I hit a roadblock with the more complex ones with gradients and multiple colors. So I tried out the Spot Process program (Separation Studio), and I still haven't got a clue where to start in there. Anyone knowledgeable enough with this program to point me in the right direction?

I tinkered with the program just a few days ago. You do need to read the manual as there seems to be many dead ends. I presumed you have to set everything else in a graphics program before running it is sep studio.

It seems to use a RGB + CMYK color mode (Or more specifically Turquiose, Purple, Gold & Grey) in combination with an Underbase and Highlight White.

Yes. With previous designs, I would separate them into color layers in Photoshop, and then send them off.

Yes I've read the manual, and I'm still stuck. I'm very new to this business and do not yet know much about printing, so any help is appreciated.

You sound as though you're not ready for this type of work. Doing great art and color seps in photoshop is difficult. Even people who think they know what they're doing more often than not don't know sheet. Better job this stuff out dude.
