Hi girls. I was considering either purchasing the Burgues script or paying a calligrapher to design my invites, and then goccoing them at home. Then I remembered Miss Tiramisu’s problem with reproducing smaller, more delicate fonts on the Gocco. Unfortunately, I cannot "test out" how well the Gocco reproduces calligraphy or the Burgues font without first spending the money! Before I drop $99 on a font (or more, if hiring a calligrapher), I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using the Gocco with either option? Did it turn out okay, or did you have to scrap the whole project? Thanks in advance!

I have the same question! Did you ever receive any more advice regarding the subject? Or did you try it? If so, how did it turn out?

I have no idea, but since I’m getting ready to start goccoing I’d really love to find out. Especially since the screens and bulbs are getting hard to find.
Hopefully someone will have some experience with this.

I used the Gocco on Scriptina font and it came out beautiful! I went with a 14 pt font.
Most of the font is smeared by photoshop (to protect our identity) but "RSVP" is the font as well.

Mrs. Lemon actually sells Gocco’d thank you cards in her Etsy shop using this font and I think it looks great:
Hope that helps! Looks like it works fine.

I’ve used a bunch of pretty intricate fonts at a small type and they’ve all seemed to be ok- just make sure you use enough ink and when it starts to look like things are fading out where the font is very thin- take a paper towel and press hard onto that to get some of the ink through the screen. Make sense?

Wow! Thanks for the response girls (I actually had no idea that this post even had responses!).
I actually ended up purchasing the Burgues font, printed in a small typeface, and it worked perfectly on the gocco!

Can you post images of the two? So we can see the difference between the two styles?
