Gocco Supplies Wanted

This is a call out to all Gocco owners. Do you have Gocco supplies you no longer need and would like them to go to a good home (and make some money)?The Riso Print Gocco is a fantastic machine but due to the rising cost of supplies and Riso discontinuing production many people have been left with machines and small amounts of supplies that they can no longer use.

I am in need of B6 screens and bulbs for upcoming Gocco prints and would like to buy surplus Gocco supplies, preferably from the UK.

Dot is still a work in progress but with some elements falling into place we thought it was worth a sneaky peak… Dot The Jewellers
