I am wondering where I can get Gocco inks either locally (Seattle) or online. I am borrowing a Gocco machine and will be in need of bulbs, screens and inks. I don’t want to hold the machine for too long, so ideally I could get it from a place other than ebay (which ships from Japan)
Thank you for any tips!

This is so weird, I don’t even see my own post on the boards page. Has anybody used this site?

I’ve only used Northwood studios (http://northwoodstudios.tripod.com/) and I’ve never had any problems.

Northwood Studios is good and fast. http://www.paper-source.com is also another option. And if you have a Pearl Arts near you, they might have a smattering of random inks. The one near me hadn’t restocked Gocco in years, but they did have some odd colors left, (like neon orange).

I found that Northwood Studios has the best prices. They are fast and have great customer service!

I have had excellent luck with printaddictjapan and craftyjapan (both on etsy).
However, my experience with Northwood Studios was awful! I tried them because they are state-side so there prices and shipping are a little more reasonable. However, they have issues with their order process and sent me a package of faulty bulbs! when I contacted them about the issue they initially said they would send more only to retract that offer the next day because, as she said, “she was sure it could only be from user error and not her products.” So with 4 half-printed screens, I was forced to order more bulbs to finish the project.
Luckily, printaddict was excellent and offerd me super expedited shipping. Still, with all of that wasted money and time, I learned my lesson: slightly cheaper prices from a haphazard website often costs a lot more in the end.

I’ve also had good luck with printaddictjapan and another Etsy seller, GoccoShop. Great communication and really good service. I also ordered from Northwood Studios, but they didn’t have all the inks I needed. I’m about to try their screens for the first time.
