So I got a Gocco...

...and boy am I excited! For those of you out there who are Gocco virgins, here is how save gocco! describes the Japanese machine:
"Cleverly combining the basic priciples of screenprinting and rubber-stamping, "print gocco" is a clean, easy, and fully self-contained compact system that exposes and prints all in one unit. Using flash bulbs similar to those found in old cameras, an original image is thermally imprinted on a master screen. Next, colorful prints are made by pressing the ink-applied master screen against a sheet of paper placed on a sponge pad."
[Above] This was my first run where I slowly began to learn the capabilities of my PG-11 model. I was so excited that I decided to print thank you cards right away! Below is my first real print. Oh the possibilities to come...
