I JUMPED ON THE GOCCO BANDWAGON

I don't know if I mentioned this before but last week I bought a Print Gocco for Arts on Ebay. It's the B5 model for cloth and it's really huge!!! The package weighs about 25 pounds. In previous months I have been filling my head with all these ideas of what I could do with it but ever since I got it I've been kind of hesitant to try it out. I kind of wish I bought the kit for paper instead. Mostly because the kit for cloth doesn't come with the reflector partition to burn smaller screens and it doesn't come with a registration plate :( And when I think about it that way I kind of wish I bought a smaller sized Gocco because it's more cost efficient to burn screens with the smaller model and there's a local place that sells supplies for the B6 model but not the B5... I don't know.. I'm excited and confused at the same time because I don't know what I want to do anymore. I thought that it would be a good purchase but now I'm not so sure. Maybe screen printing isn't for me after all?

this may be a silly question, as i know nothing about gocco machines, but... is it possible for you to exchange it for the model that you want?

i can't wait to see some gocco stuff you make!

no i can't exchange it.. i'd pretty much have to sell it and buy a new one. at this point i'm thinking about just selling it and using the money to start a different project.

:( that sucks... but if it's brand spankin' new and in great condition, you'll probably get your money's worth back on it by reselling it, i'd imagine. good luck to you!
