I was wondering if anyone knew what the difference between a gocco that is pg5, pg11, pg 13. I tried looking online, but haven’t had much luck figuring it out. I’m really want to buy one, but I don’t want to choose the wrong one. Thanks for any help.

The B6, PG5, PG10 and the PG11 models all use the same B6 size screens and two lamps per screen.
All of the print units use the same inks interchangeably. There are a lot of colors for paper and a limited palette available for cloth printing.
The PG5 and the B6 are almost identical except, of course, for their color. The PG5 has been designed with an easier grip on the lamp housing and a better framework for holding the screen so that it is held in place more reliably while printing. Also, the PG5 is slightly more compact than the B6 although they both use the B6 screens and lamps.
The PG10 was the first upgrade that took into account a need for multiple screen registration. It has a built in registration plate that allows your designs and your screens to be accurately aligned for flashing and for printing. It also has a builtin print counter and is larger, heavier and more stoutly constructed than the PG5 & B6 printers.
The PG10 Super was a briefly introduced unit soon discontinued and replaced by the PG11, with upgraded clip-in ruled registration plate as well as print # counter and adjustable platen allowing you to move the print bed by increments to assist in proper placement of your prints.
PGArts for Paper and PGArts for Cloth, as well as the older/discontinued B5 model flash a larger screen, the "B5". These screens are still called B5 screens for the discontinued model, and require 4 bulbs each to expose the whole screen. The PGarts for Cloth and for Paper are identical hardware but come with differing accessories. The Arts for Cloth, for instance, somes with silkscreen inks in jars and a squeegee and several waterproof mounting frames.
