I just received my Print Gocco Today and have been looking through the manual. I am a bit confused about the whole filter/carbon etc. thing. It isn't clear about Ink Jet prints(do you use the blue filter with them or not.). Do those of you who have a Gocco use your Ink Jet prints..or make carbon copies? What methods work best for you..types of copies...with or without the filter etc?

Thanks in advance.

hey amy,
depending on your printer, you most likely cannot use ink jet prints.  if you have certain types of HP printers, it will work.  i have never needed the blue filter.  the few times i tried it, it messed up my exposure.
i'd recommend using the enclosed pens for your first effort.  other than that, i use straight photocopies or laser prints.
good luck!

if you're not sure of your printer but don't have photo copy abilities at hand, you can also carefully go over the lines with the riso/gocco pen...you just need to make sure you do the whole image and that you let it dry before making your print.  obviously, as this is a little tedious, it's better for simple images, but i know how irritating it is to want to do something and not have a photocopier around!
