Re: What is a Gocco?



A Gocco is a small Japanese screen printer. It uses bulbs to flash a mesh
screen. You then ink the screen and print. It comes in two print sizes, one
roughly a postcard, the other 6" x9 " and virtually any color ink is
available. It prints on paper, wood, metal, cloth (has cloth printing inks),
almost any flat nonpglossy surface. Screens can be flashed from photocopied
originals or originals made with carbon-containing materials. The detail is
very, very good. Smaller size is usually available in a kit--inks, screens,
bulbs--for about $100. Bigger one is much more expensive. It's a great tool
for book artists.
