Ok so… if anyone can please answer these questions for me (regarding the Gocco), I’d be unbelievably appreciative!
1. Does the PG-11 (I think that’s what it’s called) print on 8-1/2" paper? Or is it in any way capable of doing so? Will this require additional accessories?
2. If not, is there any other model of Gocco that will? What else might I need?
I’m aiming to print my own round menu cards to fit in the recess of my charger plates, which happen to be 8-1/2" in diameter. I have a Cricut big enough to cut the paper, but no way to print on it — I want to print ivory ink on navy cardstock… hence the need for a Gocco.
Any help or advice or insight would be HUGELY appreciated!!
If you could even email me your advice at [email protected], that would be better, as I’ll be out a lot this evening/weekend and can’t check my weddingbee account so much on my phone, but can get email everywhere; thank you BUNCHES AND BUNCHES!

Hi there! I’m not a gocco-master, but I am not aware of a machine that prints that large of a surface. You could always use the regular size gocco screen (about 4×6) and print half at a time. It sounds from your post that you do not already have a gocco — is that right? The machine itself is pretty expensive, and once you get ink, screens, and bulbs, you are looking at some expensive menu cards! Have you thought about asking a local printer if this is something they might be able to do?

Quick update — it looks like if you buy the LARGE P6 machine you can print on that large of a surface. 7×9 screens are available at paper source:

It depends what you’re looking to achieve? You will not be able to print a full design in one fell swoop with the "normal" sized gocco, but you’re not limited to being UNABLE to print on it.
I’ve taken a photo of an 8.5" diameter mousepad… and shown the print area using an index card. you could print just in the middle with one screen, or break down the menu into 2 screens and print them that way… or even get adventurous and print a border!
Hope this helps!

If you don;t already own a gocco, i went the faux-co route, you can make it as large as you want and make your screens with photoez sheets. i would recommend trying to get your hands on some gocco/riso ink tho, i tried some regular paints which didn’t work as well.

OMG you are all so wonderful for all this help — thank you!
Will give it a shot when my gocco arrives (I got a PG11… I think… lol) and post pics!
