Goccos Available at Paper Source

2008_4_3.gocco.jpgGoccos are the holy grail of the crafting world—simple, handy, solid—so when the Japanese-made printing machine (sort of like silk screening, but easier) went out of production, print fans were crushed. Since 2005, Goccos have been tough to find, but today, local stationary go-to Paper Source got some of the "big daddy" Goccos in stock. Ayee! The $395 PG6 can make prints up to 6.5" x 9.3", and Goccos can print on paper and cloth.

Local artists use Goccos to make ceramic goods, adroable notecards, frameable prints, notebooks and more. We recently had our first Gocco experience and were stunned by how easy it is to use and how swanky the end results looked, even on our maiden Gocco voyage.
