Edit: it’s been brought to my attention that a certain hand sign is now considered a hate symbol which is certainly not my intention to promote nor was I aware until this morning. These cards pictured are going into the trash.
I would have loved that back when I had a Print Gocco! Always ran out of room for my cards to dry…Do you think you could modify your design by adding a little bouquet of flowers to the hand? Or might that still be considered offensive?
I’ve still got a Gocco lying around here somewhere! I’ve been hoarding my last 4 flashbulbs for “just the right project” for almost a decade?
The cards are expressly supposed to be neutral, the news about the hand really threw me. Not sure where bouquets sit in the ideological spectrum these days but I thank you for the suggestion. Maybe a high five? A friend suggested a parakeet. It’s all so fraught.
In addition to the Print Gocco they released in the U.S., I dragged one of their fancier models back from Japan. It has some great extra features to make hairline registration easier. I recently confirmed that my stash of ink is still good. I have a few unexposed screens left in a light-proof envelope in a refrigerator but, those are so old I am not wildly optimistic about having them work. I still have exposed screens for some of my knotwork designs ( https://evermorestud.io/printmaking-portfolio/ ) that would probably still print.
A regular photo silk screen would likely work in the units. I remember there were people trying to come up with replacement supplies and, I have links to a few notes on those somewhere.
Very nice prints!
I was on a mail list for Gocco til I bartered mine, and recall all sorts of speculation about substitutes for screens and bulbs…It’s disappointing that Riso did not continue to manufacture supplies.
