My gocco cost over $100 and I had to order it from a supplier in Japan.  As the company that produces the gocco has stopped making supplies, the screens run $5 a piece on the low end and ink can be anywhere from $5-10 a tube. 

If you plan on doing gocco for other projects other than your wedding, it’s worth it as long as the supplies haven’t run out.  If not, gocco can be a little persnickety.  If your image isn’t completely flat and doesn’t sit flash with the screen, you’ll have bits of the image that won’t burn through.  Also if you get too close to the edge of the screen with the image, you’ll have the same issue.  

But once you get the hang of it, gocco is lots of fun.  I made around 300 recipe cards in a few hours and it was very zen.  I’m going to use my gocco for the image on our invites.  But we have chosen to go the route of the laser printer for the text as it ensures the information our guests need (aka street addresses and times) are correct and not patchy.
