This has been my first major wedding project, and I’m so happy with how they turned out! I just had to share! And I wanted to thank all the bees here for convincing me that I NEEDED a Gocco. I would have never known what it was without the Hive. Best wedding purchase yet! If you are on the fence, you should get one 🙂

Beauty! I love the writing on the back of the envelope. :o) Good job I’m still not sold on a Gocco- how much did it cost you? And how much are the inks? Anyone?

Thanks, ladies! They were a labor of love, but I’m so happy with them.
@Miss Ladybug – I bought a brand new PG-11 Model, and it cost me $300. I know you can get them for cheaper elsewhere, but I really wanted a new one in that model (the PG-11 has a registering system that makes printing “layers” much easier than the previous models). At the time I bought mine, eBay was selling some of the older models, used, for about $200, so I figured it was worth the extra $$$ for me.
As for inks, there are lots of sellers on etsy.com who sell them in packs of 5 for about $6/each plus shipping from Japan. So, a pack of 5 costs about $35 or so. But the ink really lasts a long time. I printed 125 of these STDs and still have well over half a tube of brown and even more green ink left.

Beautiful! and I completely agree about the Gocco- I love mine and used it on a multitude of projects- Invitations, Napkins, Matchbox covers, Candy buffet bags- LOVE it!!

Those are beautiful!! i really want a Gocco too, but I didn’t want to spend the money! Can I ask where you purchased yours!? I saw that you said you saw some on Ebay, used, but where did you buy your new one!?

@jingle96 – I purchased my Gocco off etsy.com from this seller, CraftyJapan: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftyJapan. I get all my supplies from her as well. She ships everything from her home in Japan, and it comes to my home in California in about one week. She has a new PG-11 in her shop right now, if you want to take the plunge!
@KMSull – it’s not as hard as it looks! There are some great tutorials from the Bee Bloggers here, and I did my own if you want to check it out: http://perpetualpartyplanner.blogspot.com/2009/11/our-save-dates-part-three-go-go-gadget.html
