PRINT GOCCO – USEFUL LINKS FOR INFORMATION AND SUPPLIES
UPDATE: The Print Gocco and its supplies were discontinued a few years ago but I will keep this page up for information. If you have access to a thermofax machine it is possible to adapt some of the techniques.
My new tutorial on altering photos to make them suitable for Gocco print
Ou est Charlie? – fun YouTube video showing how to print
YouTube video showing registration using the PG11 (which is apparently the same as the PG10 Super)
Brilliant step by step tutorial on Flickr – click on each of the photos in turn for the description. It uses the Gocco Arts machine which has twice the print area of the PG5 and the others but most of it would still apply for any of the machines.
Nehoc – based in Australia
Print Addict – based in Japan
Northwood Studios – based in America
European supplier of thermofax film (you need 70 mesh) by the metre: http://www.patchworkshop.de – the English translation is not complete but Guenther Panenka, the owner, has good English and will accept orders by email – email@example.com Guenther has recently started stocking Gocco bulbs as well.
Paper and Card:
eco-craft sell recycled paper and card in the UK, including postcard sized card. I’ve used this for a swap and it was good – and good for the environment, too!
