I recently purchased a Gocco off of ebay. I was super excited to get it and have been dying to use it. Being my first time, it took me a little while to figure out what everything was, but i have it down now. So I decided I needed a project to do. Every print I did stuck to the screen and i had to pull them off of the screen. it’s taken me a whole day of stalking weddingbee posts about gocco to figure out that I’m MISSING the sticky pad!
Anyone know where I can purchase one? or know of something else that would work?
I plan on making my invites of this in the future and think it would be really helpful to have the sticky part there. TIA!

I’m not sure, but you might want to try savegocco.com. They have a list of places to get supplies.
I don’t know the websites off the top of my head, even though I’ve ordered from all of them it seems like in the past couple of days. 🙂 I just got my brand new PG Arts in the mail about 30 minutes ago. I haven’t even opened it yet!

The sticky pad is the gray pad with little squares on it that comes as part of the kit. It is the pad you have been doing your projects on. It has a thin layer of plastic on it that you have to peel off. It should all be right there! By The Way if it starts to loose its stick, a little soap and water and let it dry and it should be back to being sticky!

Yes, I have been using the part that comes with the kit. I thought it looked funny, and I now realize that it isn’t grey and has no squares, just kinda looks like a big foam block. No stick to it.

I don’t really use the "sticky part" at all. I keep it covered with an index card at all times. Most of my prints stick to the screen if they’ve got lots of ink in the design, and it’s not a problem?
🙂 So don’t worry… you can gocco without the pad… it just takes a bit of caution and practice.

okay, thanks! I wasn’t sure if it would make the ink funny or not. One of my shapes doesn’t look like it’s completely smooth, but maybe it’ll be better after it dries!
