Gocco Printing: A How-To Video

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

julieincharge

This article was originally published on February 12, 2008. We are reviving it as part of the Best of the Storque series. Enjoy!

It’s an Etsy How-To Video with the wonderful julieincharge! This week we’ll be talking about Gocco printing, which is a way of printing that uses a kit from Japan.  If you’ve ever wanted to do screenprinting but have been too intimidated, Gocco is the way to go. I sat down with Julie and she walked me through how to make a sweet little Valentine card.

First things first for your project …

Supplies Needed for Gocco Printing

If you buy a new PG-5 kit, it should come with all of the following to get you started:

  • B-6 masters (screens)
  • Print Gocco Lamp (bulbs)
  • Riso Gocco ink for paper
  • Riso Gocco pens OR photocopy images (no larger that 3.5” x 5.5”)
  • adhesive blocking strips (optional)
  • 2 AA batteries
  • Gocco cleaner
  • blue filter (for use with photocopies)

There are many different applications and ideas for Gocco: greeting cards, postcards, business cards, notecards, envelopes, invitations, stationary, napkins, tags, labels, stickers, bookplates, art prints, zines, small books … the list goes on!

Let’s Go Gocco

Once you’ve got your supplies and an idea, the first thing you want to do is make your design. You can do it on the computer or by hand, but you’re going to want carbon to be in the ink of whatever you do, so you’ll want to photocopy your project or use a special pen. Some laser printers work, too.

Once you’ve got your design, it’s time to make the screen. Make sure there are batteries in your printer and put the screen in with the blue part facing out. Load the flashbulb holder with two flashbulbs. (Make sure to wash your hands when you’re done since they are toxic.)

Flash your screen, and you’re all set to start printing. Apply the Gocco inks to your screen. If you’re going to use more than one color, use the foam blocker that Julie shows in the video to separate the different colors.

Then start printing! I was super impressed by how fast this whole process went! If you have leftover ink on your screen, you can put it in a plastic bag and keep it for later.

Once you’ve got your cards, get them set up in your Etsy shop. A quick search for Gocco cards will give you an idea of the amazing and wonderful possibilities that await you when you fall down the rabbit hole that is Gocco printing.

I’m also on the lookout for Gocco tips and tricks. The next time you do Gocco printing and notice that you have a special way of doing things that isn’t mentioned in the video, write us a note, leave a comment, or make a little video showing your Gocco skills!

    Slowshirts says:

    madebythem- they didn't cover it in this video, but are you using your blue filter screen during your exposing? it's supposed to be between the screen and bulbs (from what i understand, and have been doing) when using a photocopy as your original. With the carbon pens it is not needed. Also, the newer your copy the better i have found. Old copies often do not expose clearly. Hope this helps! There's nothing worse then using up your last bulbs!

    I am getting a gocco printer tomorrow for free...woo-hoo! I have been looking for one here in Japan for awhile now and oddly here they are regarded as a childs toy. I was told over and over again to check toys-r-us for one. I was surprised that there seemed to be no awareness of the cancer risk associated with the bulbs.

    I've wanted one of these amazing machines for years now. I can't get hold of one in the UK and am worried that if I do finally get one, the supplies will be limited and eventually run dry. Does anyone know if there is any info on the subject?

    Just new to etsy and stumbled across this post. Have had my gocco for what must be 25 years now. Bought it in a sale at an educational suppliers and got lots of lamps when I saw them on offer. Have made so many Christmas cards and postcards over the years, not to mention business cards - and I know so many friends and familly still treasure these and get the cards out every Chtistmas! What a shame to see it go Obviously the end of an era!

    OMG!!! I went to art school for printmaking and spent many toxic hours cleaning my silkscreens out only to later sell my equipment once I graduated because I didn't have the set-up at home. Not once did I ever hear about Gocco from any instructors or other students as a possibility . I want to try!

    Quarterpast6: join the Gocco Yahoo! groups forum here for extra info on the state of Gocco, it's a very helpful community as well: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gocco-printers/ TokyoMommy: Could you please explain a bit more about the cancer risks of the bulbs, or cite some URL's for additional info??? Thanks! And nothing but Gocco stuff here in my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5094003

I kept it simple just using one colour for starters and will now move into something a little more adventurous next time. Thanks so much for the vid I had to run back and forth during the process just to ensure I was doing the right thing. :)

    just received my PG-10 from printaddict today--what joy!! I have wanted one for years!! Thanks for the tutorial. Mine came with a video, but the sound doesn't work, so this was a huge help. Any advice on how to clean the screen--and is it good for more than one use? Also, I saw some one using two masters in the video, but would love to know how and when to do this. Thanks again--can't wait to try it out!

    I just got my Gocco and am so disappointed. I have already wasted 6 bulbs and 3 screens. My image will not burn AT ALL.I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong and no one else seems to ever have this problem. I'm using a photocopy with the blue filter. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong??
