My biggest thing is the GocCo and the Yudu are very similar, they make magic happen in my understanding (ahem I haven’t worked with either as you may tell) BUT the cons to the Gocco is that it is NO LONGER BEING MADE. I would highly suggest buying a Yudu as they are being made. I think Miss Sewing has a post upcoming about it.

Just my two cents

YUDU is just an “easier” version of a silk screen press at home. PRINT GOCCO was made especially for paper printing and uses denser inks as well as a finer mesh screen.

GOCCO has been discontinued for about 4 years now — so while the supplies are around, they are in shorter supply than they used to be. YUDU is newer and its product line is expanding to include a finer paper mesh screen and more inks.

Also – you can use your YUDU to silkscreen shirts/bags/etc.

I got a yudu for christmas and I have yet to try it. I’m going to bust it out ASAP to get used to it and see what I can make with it for the wedding. I know that miss sewing did an entry on using their yudu to make bags.

Adventures in Yudu

they make a 220 mesh screen for the yudu now that is supposedly better for paper crafting (which is what i’m planning on using it for).

if you check out the wiki area of weddingbee, there is a link to gocco information and weddingbee posts.

i think gocco is good for one-time usage and if you can find all the supplies you need for your project, but yudu is better as a long-term solution because presumably the supplies will be around for a while.

there are ways to continue to use the gocco even when the manufactured supplies run out, but it takes a bit more effort.
