We had three machines between seven of us, so inevitably the process was slow. We all had a chance to print onto paper and fabric.
First, Nola did a brief demonstration of the process. Print Gocco is a simplified screen printing method. The screens are prepared by imprinting a carbon-based master onto the screens using flash bulbs. The same machine can be used for printing, replacing a squeegee in normal screen printing, or the inked screen can be mounted onto a hand stamper. The screens we printed were B6, so using the hand stamper is more useful for larger sheets of paper or fabric, and the machine is better for small products, like cards.
The whole process is incredibly easy to do. New flash bulbs are inserted in the flash unit.
