You may want try I what I do when I use cardstock or stardream paper with my inkjet. There are thesep powder filled pouches (I know Paper Source has them). You dust up your paper and it helps the ink grab and dry more quickly.

You may try pressing less hard.  And like MissPanguin said, it usually has to do with the type of paper youre using, some tends to be more succeptable to bleeding than others.  Definitely try her solution, it might do the trick!  You can also try pressing less hard when youre stamping your print.

MissPanguin, do you know what the powder is called?  I just tried looking on Paper Source for it but I can’t find anything like what you described.

I just thought of one more thing as well (just finished up some goccoing this morning!)

 Sometimes if the weather is too warm, the gocco ink goes a little runny…sometimes if youre getting bleeding like that, you might want to try to put your screen in the fridge for a couple of minutes and try again…thats definitely happened to me when I try to mix my own inks and my hands warm the ink too much.

Anyway, glad to see you solved your problem!  Let us know how your project turns out!

i’m also fairly new to the whole gocco craze… was wondering what model printer are you using? where did you purchase it & for how much? thanks!

Hi everyone,

Hope you can give me some guidance on what kind of paper to avoid when print using gocco.  I am waiting for my Print Gooco to arrive and now in the process of buying a good cardstock.  I have my eyes set on the Metallic Card Stock.

I just want to make sure that the cardstock I have in mind is okay and won’t have trouble like fadingflower had.   

Thanks!
