I let mine dry for about 24 hours before touching them.  They seemed pretty dry at that point so I stacked them all up, however I have noticed a tiny amount of ink sticking to the backside of a couple invites.  From what I have read, drying time varies depending on your climate, as well as the color of the ink- white stays a little tacky for some reason. (Hence, my sticking issue)

Mine dried in less than an hour – but I’m impatient

Beautiful, fadingflower!

Yeah, it depends on paper, amount of ink and pressure, but mine only took a couple of hours for each layer.

ACK!  I have a PG-5 machine and…*gasp* I don’t think I can print on 5×7 flat cards!   I was planning on doing invitations on 5×7 Flat cards.  Does anyone know if it is possible?  I might have to change my whole design. 

 

Help!

haru – it’s totally possible. You’ll have to split up your design onto multiple screens though.  Try splitting the top & bottom or left & right.

I agree with sandpapertongue you have to split up into multiple screen.  I did an invitation like this below was split up into two screens. One for the image and one for the texts part and was on 7 x 5 A7 Flat card:     Good Luck !  I hope I helped in some ways

Lette – here are some tips:

  • Plan everything out before burn your stuff on the master screen.
  • Make sure you enough gocco supplies and inks
  • Align everything where you want your images and texts to be. 
  • Make sure you get a good copy of the stuff your are going to print on from a laser print that has good amount of carbon ink.
  • Make some sample prints to see if the ink amount is enough. 
  • And have fun =)
