I wish I was a "DYI" kinda gal, but do support those who are by using services like etsy often. Now I’m in a situation that I actually need a Gocco!
My welcome bags are plain but reusable and an amazing price! I was hoping to jazz them up a bit by adding a little Gocco action. Here is the bag:
I was thinking about a shape of the state I’m getting married in (North Carolina) with a star in city? Then something cute, but not cheesy so people will use them again in gold.
Does anyone know if this will work on that type of fabric? Do you know someone who will do it for me with out paying a arm and a leg in a professional fashion? (There are only like 17 bags)
Any and all thougths are welcome! Thank you!

Hi Miss Reeves,
I’m a freelance designer and cooincedentally own a Gocco machine. I would love to help out! When is your wedding? There are Gocco inks for fabrics that I’m sure would work for your bags. You can email me at [email protected] and we can work up a timeline, design, & price.
I can send all designs via email.

I guess I’m looking for someone with PG ARTS machine, which has a 6.5"x9.3" screen. Thanks Mary Fairy for letting me know!

Does it have to be Gocco? Try a t-shirt screenprinting shop nearby and you could probably get your custom design done relatively cheaply.Or you could buy a Speedball screenprint kit from a local art store and DIY.

If you aren’t able to find someone to gocco them for you, how about following Miss Sundae’s lead and use a stencil and fabric paint? Her Out of Town bags are adorable!

Have you tried the Alchemy feature on Etsy? You post what you’re looking for and artists/sellers place bids to make it for you. Sounds like it could be a great fit for your idea!

Great Ideas! I thought about screen print, but during the small search i’ve done it seems like it’s all for large orders. I will make some calls this weekend.

You can purchase a screen burned with your image for about $30-40. Then you can print them yourself?
The materials to produce a PG Arts screen will run you about $10 in materials cost, so I’d think it’d cost around $40+ to have this done by someone. You can use gocco and fabric ink to print on it. But, I warn you, those bags are really meshy and if you have any detailed font they won’t be immaculate.

There is a website for a store in NYC that will make custom screens for you. I found it via Martha Stewart but have lost it apparently. Try Martha’s site, she did a whole spread of screen printing a couple of years back. It’s really neat. Also, on Etsy try IceCreamSocialShoppe Mary made some great bags for her own wedding, they might be willing to do it.
