the actual print size for the PG-5 is 4×6, I believe the pg-10 is 2x that, although I could be wrong. But the PG-10 is substantially bigger.  Not sure about the PG-11.

Yes, you can mix the inks, but you want to really make sure you mix them well. I usually squeeze some out into a small container and mix it for several minutes with a popsicle stick. I think i read someone say they squish it together in a plastic baggie making sure it is mixed well….  Make sure you mix enough if your working on a big project to not need to mix more later because it can be hard to get the same shade again.

Hi Karla-

You can certainly mix inks- to get colors closer to what you want.  Just make sure you mix enough for the entire printing-otherwise your colors might not match if you mix up another batch halfway through.

Here is a thread from a year ago about which talks about the differences between the models: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/gocco-buying

Let us know if you have any other questions.  Good Luck!

Karla,

 I’m fairly sure that the PG 5 is the predecessor of the B6.  So that’s why the B6s are easier to find.  I just bought a used B6 off Ebay (it came with a lot of supplies, but I’m sure I’ll have to buy more eventually).
