I originally goccoed some white ink on grey standard smooth cardstock and it didnt turn out great.  That being said it was my first project EVER so it probably could have gone better now that i have more experience, but its pretty much turned me off of white ink/dark paper totally 🙁  The ink was a little see through.

I know people have had success with it, so dont be discouraged…I’m hoping someone with more experience can send some tips your way.

Good luck!

Definitely play around.  I also heard somewhere that if you use teh FABRIC ink instead of the paper ink, it might give you better results.

 This is all rumor though, i dont have personal experience with it.

Have you tried the yahoo! Gocco boards?  you might want to see what they have to say over there…

I used luxe once for printing and it came out very well for me.  The ink simply settles in very nice and smooth without any mess at all.  I might order some more luxe cardstock in the future.  Here’s an image of an illustration that I did printed on a luxe cardstock:

I’m with fadingflower on this one…I’ve actually had better luck with luxe paper than smooth cardstock.  I’ve found that I’ve had to stick my ink in the fridge for a few minutes to cool it down with the smooth cardstock, because it bleeds easier.  The luxe cardstock seems to take the ink much easier…the bummer about this though is that its harder to find luxe cardstock in anything but white/cream.
