Papersource in Chicago just got a bunch of them in stock. Not sure how much they are though, or if other locations have them as well.

You can find gocco supplies from Northwoods Studios: 


i too had been very curious about the gocco, and now that i have one i plan to incorporate it into my business after i print my wedding invites, programs, rehearsal dinner invites, and shower invites(helping out the bridesmaids)!

I’m trying to decide which size to get, fiance would like to buy the largest size possible as he would like to use it for making t shirts after the wedding, anybody come across a size guide?

I believe there is someone that sells them on Etsy. You can definitely get one from ebay for about $100. But the shipping is usually half of that because they are coming from over seas.

The largest model is the PG Arts for $395 (including shipping) at paper-source.com. The masters are a bit more expensive and it requires 4 bulbs instead of 2. They also have the PG5 for $148 which uses smaller screens and only 2 bulbs.

If you’re interested, I have a few used PG10 Supers and PG-11s which are about the same size as the PG5 but have a registration system that makes it much easier to do multi/process color inks. I’ll be listing them on ebay in the next day or so.

Good luck! Goccoing is addictive!

Also on etsy there is a seller printaddictjapan. She’s a good seller. On ebay if it goes over 150.00 it’s not worth it! People pay crazy money for a used Gocco when they could just buy it new for cheaper. Printaddictjapan has a lot of colors for ink that you can choose from. I own the PG-11 system.

If you’re doing print and you want to do a 4 color process the PG-11 is really good. One of the bonuses is also that it’s more accurate in printing since you can move the registration plate.

Silk Screening: silk screening requires different screens and inks. People have tried using the print ink, with bad results… just incase you are thinking of doing that. Also for cost efficiency, if the print area is larger than the plates. You can always try to match it up on the PG-11 which has cross hairs for accurate printing.
