        I don't think many of your will be able to find a local Gocco supplier. I bought mine on Etsy from feltcafe but there's a few sellers that have them. As well, every once in a while Papersource has them. I think that ordering from Etsy is cheaper for the machine - I paid $100 US for mine. I order ink from Papersource though since it's quicker then waiting for a shipment from Japan. Last I checked Papersource only does them online, not in stores.

              Gocco is sold at Pearl art shops in Pa for those interested. I love them and I am thankful for you sharing

                For those of you that are interested in Gocco's, another option is to rent one. In Vancouver we have an art's studio named Blim that rents them out - I've heard of a lot of cities having somewhere that rents them. If you're just planning on using it once for wedding stuff, then that's a great way to go.

                The other cool thing about gocco'ing is that you can emboss it (with embossing powder that you can buy anywhere that sells stamps/ink pads). It doesn't work great with fonts but with pictures it works perfect. I wish I had thought of it before I did all my invites - I would have embossed the blue leaves on the main card.

                      Wow- so I have never heard of the printer you used and I'm somewhat still confused, but that's not surprising.

                      I think your invites are great- I can't tell you did them hurriedly. I love the blue leaves and the sparkly pocket folds. Very pretty- great job.
