i’m planning on borrowing a friend’s gocco to print my invites. i helped her do hers last year on a matte card stock, so i’m familiar with the machine and how it works. however, i’d like to use stardream paper (or a different metallic cardstock) and am afraid the ink won’t truly dry on this paper. i haven’t ordered gocco ink yet myself, so i tested a paper sample with a jellyroll pen. i tried to wipe it with my thumb two days later- with normal pressure it was ok, but with some force behind the thumb swipe the ink smeared slightly.
does anyone know if gocco ink will really dry on a metallic paper? i feel like it must, as so many people seem to use both stardream and gocco, but i wanted to make sure before i bought everything. thanks!

I made my STD’s on a metallic white paper with my gocco and they dried pretty fast actually. I don’t think you’ll have a problem.

Hi. I used my Gocco for our program covers. I used the Metallic Stardream in Amber. The inks that came with my Gocco were not the shades that I needed. So I went and purchased oil color from Dick Blick’s Art Store. That worked fine. I’d recommend keeping your invites on drying racks for a few days.

Yes! I used Gocco on Stardream Opal for my RSVPs and Stardream Bronze for my invite backgrounds. Here’s my post on it. 🙂
