I need some help. I’m looking to buy a Gocco (I know it seems silly since the supplies aren’t going to be shipped to the US anymore, but I still want one).
I’m not engaged yet, but would love to possibly make invites or STD or other stationary with it when the time comes, but in the meantime, I would love to make notecards/thank yous, etc.
Can anyone advise which Gocco I should get? The Hi Mesh B6 or the PG 10/11? What’s the difference?
Any help is much appreciated – thanks!

Same situation here.
From what I understand the B6 should be fine for whatever you need to do. The PG10/11 just make things easier, but has the same size screen as the B6.
Check out these sites:
What I decided to do is that I put it out there to everyone I knew that I wanted to buy, rent or share a gocco. I found someone that would “rent” me their B6 for my std’s, invites, etc. I’m buying the supplies and giving her a nominal amount for using the print gocco. Still might buy one, but they’re expensive and from what I understand the “addiction” comes and goes. 🙂
Would also recommend joining gocco groups in yahoo and flickr for advice. These people really know their gocco.

I have the B6, wish I had the PG10. The PG 10 makes registering multiple layers of prints much easier… with the B6, it’s more of a "manual" job which gives you more mistakes and throw-aways. I’m considering trading in my B6 for a PG10, but I’d have to have a big project to do first!
If you can swing the little extra cash, I think the PG10 is a worthy investment!

I have the PG-10 but since the manual is in Japanese, I’m not really sure how to use the registration plates. Hopefully, once I get started on my projects, it’ll make more sense.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. I’ll try looking at some of those yahoo groups to get a better understanding. Tripps, I have the same concern as you that I won’t be able to actually figure it out in another language!
