Have a Gocco Christmas

I had all sorts of wild plans to handwrite and stamp this years Christmas cards but I failed miserably so I had to come up with something different. That’s when I thought about my Gocco screen printer and checked to see if there were baubles left – only two, just enough!

I forgot how much fun it is to use a Gocco as it has been ages since I’ve last used it.

It’s so simple and I can recommend to read in to owning a Gocco as it will make life so much more fun owning one. As from now on I’ll start to use mine over and over again.

How funny that I’ve yet made a double Dutch error as the card is in English only the en between Boris and Yvonne should be an and and not a Dutch en. Ah well it’s printed now and I love it!

        Het wordt niet meer gemaakt, zie ik. Vroeg me daarom af wie welke site je dat hebt gekocht.

    The cards are lovely Yvonne, but I’ve actually been admiring the “Make” poster in the background. Did you make that as well? It’s really awesome.

    Very cool! I want a Gocco too. And about the error, that is how it is in a bilingual world… I find it charming. πŸ˜€

    Bij ooit baby nr 2 maak ik dan zelf de kaartjes.
    En kijk uit naar het Y en B xmas kaartje in de brievenbus als ik thuis kom.

    O, M, G!!! Growing up in Japan in the late 70s and 80s, the majority of the New Year’s cards exchanged among my friends was done by Print Gocco. I can’t believe they still exist. I checked out their web site only to find out that they will discontinue the production in a few weeks. Thanks for sharing your project. I love your design and your color choice.

    I didnt notice the en until you mentioned it πŸ™‚
    I do the same thing the other way around when I am typing in Dutch, I type and instead of en. It just comes automatically. The cards are lovely.

    So beautiful! I used to have a Gocco PG-10… made some lovely prints from them, but it sadly it had to go as parts became too costly for me to purchase and I needed the money mainly for my studies *sniff*… but we made beautiful good times πŸ˜€
    Thanks for sharing and keep up your pretty blog!

    Super leuk gevonden! Ik vind ook dat je design van het kaartje supertof is.. Ik ben daar een leek in maar mag ik vragen hoe dat je de design zelf gemaakt hebt? Programma ( en hoe dan) of met de hand?
    Groetjes!
