Supplies are getting harder to find… and if you are planning to use it with lots of text… I would say don’t do it. I wrote about it on my latest blog post, but the only thing it was useful for was specific design elements for the invites. 

If you like the stamped, rustic look it’s a great tool, however if you are very particular on how perfect your invites look… I would find a new idea. 

I ended up taking mine to a copy shop. The actual invites and rsvp card were printed at a traditional printer.

Good luck! Let me know if you have questions about designing your own invites! I’d be happy to answer!

I’d go with the Yudu before the gocco, it’s so hard to find supplies for it these days. The yudu comes with the 220 mesh screen now and you can find supplies in Michaels, etc.

I second the pp who said don’t use it with a lot of text. It gets too complicated/can bleed

Honestly, it’s always been pretty easy for me. As long as I go to office depot to laser print my original and use plenty of ink, the prints come out nice and evenly.

Here are our gooco’d save the dates. The blurring is all photo editing, and the font is supposed to look splotchy. (haha, I guess this isn’t the best example for those reasons, but yeah, it turned out great!)


But yeah, I agree with the others about supplies becoming few and far between. If you wanna get one, stock up on tons of screens and bulbs from the get go.

I know the feeling – I am terrified of the Gocco!
