Hi Greenteaguinness –

I gocco-ed our invites on charcoal gray cardstock with white ink! i dont have pics yet though… it ended up working out well. but i decided to emboss our names on the invite as well with white embossing powder and it turned out so much more brighter, so we did all the writing embossed!

i will try and PM you a pic of it, just dont have it on this computer at work!

Have you tried flickr.com – and type in gocco for search. Maybe you can see some ideas.

I tried to Gocco on black cardstock which i would think is close enough to navy and it did not turn out well! I used White ink, and it didn’t turn out very well, the white looked grey. So I stamped the white twice… still not good. Better but not what i expected. So then i experimented with different colors, Silver, bronze, and metallic purple popped out. The mustard yellow i originally wanted did not show up at all. even the wysteria (light purple) did not survive. Unless the color is metallic or near close to white, it will not pop out as much as you want it to. I will try to send you pictures. My analysis is that the paper source card stock that i used absorbed some of the ink and will not allow you to print on it very well unless it’s a metallic color.

I don’t recommend it….. for an early trial for my save-the-dates, I tried to Gocco teal and white onto the green paper that I used (you can see it in my post from the other day, it’s not even that dark).  At first, the white looked really cool, but after it started drying (maybe 60 seconds) it gradually started to fade and I was really disappointed.  I would try either a metallic or embossing, like the previous poster stated!

I just started goccoing my invite inserts- gold and light blue on navy cardstock- which came out beautiful.  I haven’t tried white yet, but I remember from some of Mrs. Lime’s invite posts that it’s not as opaque as you might like.
