its not worth it if you can only print one size and only produce one screen images, especially with all the beautiful papers they are making for inject printers.....

I don't know.. have you seen juicyumburger's invitation set that she and her then fiance whipped up? They are beautiful and I dont think they would have had the same affect if they were simply printed out of a printer.

Her flickr set : http://www.flickr.com/photos/juicyyumburger/sets/72157601371572596/

Here are some examples : ( of course these are credit to her.)

I have the B6 machine and the PG-11 (advanced registration) - both very worth it. If you want to print on fabric, you could try the stamper for repeat patterns as well. A big secret for getting these machines on the cheap: look up the Japanese katakana characters "go" "tsu" "ko" and enter them on the yahoo.jp auction site - most sellers are trying hard to get rid of their B6 machines for somewhere around 1000 yen (10 dollars US, roughly). You will need a service like celga.com to get it for you, but overall you'll save more money even with the shipping and service charges versus buying the machines off ebay/etsy. There're also lots with multiple inks/screens/bulbs.

I have a B6 machine and I loooooove it.  I've used it to print on both paper and fabric.  However, you have to buy special fabric paint if you want to print on fabric. 

The results are gorgeous! I really don't think you can get the same effect from just printing from an inkjet printer.

Yeah! I finally splurged on a gocco. I went with the smaller (and cheaper) B6 to start. It should arrive in the next couple of days. I decided to buy it from papersource.com because there is a retail location a block from my apartment.

Has anybody tried speedball fabric ink on the gocco or will that mess up the gocco?

From what I'm hearing, Goccos are going out of production. I was looking at the 11 model (the one with registration) but don't want to spend all the money and then not be able to get supplies. Are there similar systems out there?
