Not sure about the color question because I’ve never used blue gocco ink before.  As for how much ink used, those suckers last a long time.  Just to give you perspective, I gocco’ed our invites which as the following specifications (100 6×6 invites consisting of 1 main invitation, 4 inserts, outer envelopes RSVP envelopes, main probgram page) and I only ordered 4 tubes of ink (1 white, 2 blacks and 1 pink).  I still have not finished the white and pink to this date.  They last a while I tell ya. 

Plus for more perspective, at the first ink application to a new burnt master, I usually get about 40 prints before I have to reapply.  I find that it’s helpful to put a generous amount of ink on.  Otherwise, you have to reapply quite often and the more you reapply, the more you have to lift the screen up which redistribute your existing ink onto unused surfaces.  Just something to think about.

A deep, dark chocolate brown is one of our colors (with chartreuse). The best Gocco ink for the choc brown is karacha.

Furelysse, can you post how you were able to print your 6x6s on your Gocco? So far I have only used it for my 3×5 Save the Dates. My invites will be 6×6, so I know i’m going to have to print twice. Thanks for the ink tips too!

Here are my invitations:

For my 6×6 invites, I actually had to print them using three screens.  The flourish on one screen but I was able to use the flourish screen over and over on all the paper projects.  The pinks are on one screen (our names and our wedding date) and the remaining wordings on another screen.  All other inserts are actually done in a 3×5 parameter, just printed on larger papers adding the flourishes.  After all is said and done, I used about 8 screens due to the many different layers.  This was way back when gocco supply was less expensive.  Now, it would cost an arm and a leg to get the same result.
