I’m sure you’ll get some comments about great fonts to use but you could also set up a screen with the phrase "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" (contains all letters of alphabet) with many different fonts, of the same pt size, on the same screen, you could get a feel for what you think looks the best from the fonts you like. I dunno how many fonts/sentences would fit on the screen maybe 15 or 20 depending on how big they were and how tightly you packed them in.

I was planning to post the exact same thing about what types and fonts and size that are good to use for gocco.  I had bad experience using Garamond, size 10pt, however 14 pt is fine when printing the names, it wouldn’t smudge.  I wouldn’t  want to waste a master screen too.  I would love to hear from someone who can give us advice what are good types of fonts + size to print on for gocco.  Thanks!

Anyone have any thoughts about this?  I like Bickham script a lot – has anyone used Bickham with gocco?

I used Bickham on my invites with the Gocco & it looked great.  I used it only for our names, so it was printed fairly large, I’m not sure how good it would work in a smaller size.  I used Perpetua Titling for the rest of the invite and that came out excellent as well.

print fonts work the best…I used Edwardian Script for my invites and there are some letters where the swirl is really think and didn’t come out on some of my prints….
