Holiday Gocco

My first inspiration for getting a Gocco printing press was to make cards, specifically holiday cards for my clients (and maybe friends too if all goes well).

I've been racking my brain for an awesome idea, but haven't come up with something brilliant yet. Nevermind that I haven't even opened my Gocco to see if I can actually do it. That would probably be the first logical step to take : )

Anyway, I jumped on flickr today to see what others are doing and are a few of my favorites:


Things are better with a Parrot especially caught my eye (a few of these are hers). She has an Etsy shop and all her Gocco prints are lovely. Makes me think I should just order from her instead of trying to make my own. We'll see how it goes first...

Don't rack your brain too hard. Sometimes something so simple ends up being perfect! I get like that, too. It has to be something great! And then, I can't think of anything...

If you get stuck on figuring out how to print on the gocco, there's a demo at Paper Source. Watching her try to figure it out is entertaining, too.

De-lurking to say... I'm glad to see that someone else has Gocco Paralysis! I've had mine since last Christmas and I wanted it soooo bad. But all of the ideas I come up with don't seem "worthy" of the Gocco.

It seems silly to even admit it here. I should take perfectbound's advice (above) and just do something simple.

Thanks for the great blog -- very inspirational!
