Hi there!  I’m not a gocco-master, but I am not aware of a machine that prints that large of a surface.  You could always use the regular size gocco screen (about 4×6) and print half at a time.  It sounds from your post that you do not already have a gocco — is that right?  The machine itself is pretty expensive, and once you get ink, screens, and bulbs, you are looking at some expensive menu cards!  Have you thought about asking a local printer if this is something they might be able to do?

 

Good luck!

It depends what you’re looking to achieve? You will not be able to print a full design in one fell swoop with the "normal" sized gocco, but you’re not limited to being UNABLE to print on it.

I’ve taken a photo of an 8.5" diameter mousepad… and shown the print area using an index card. you could print just in the middle with one screen, or break down the menu into 2 screens and print them that way… or even get adventurous and print a border!

Hope this helps!

If you don;t already own a gocco, i went the faux-co route, you can make it as large as you want and make your screens with photoez sheets.  i would recommend trying to get your hands on some gocco/riso ink tho, i tried some regular paints which didn’t work as well.
