Follow up on Gocco

As you can see, freshlyblended has a new look to it. Most things are in place but there are still some things missing as you can see on my side bars. I'm still doing a bit of reorganizing and tweeking so you will be seeing some more changes for about another week or so.

Anywho, I have been trying to get around to posting a revised Gocco resources list for a while now and as the email inquiries keep funneling in, i've been constantly reminded to make a follow up post about it. In a recent article from the New York Times, entitled The Cult of Gocco, Jill Bliss was interviewed about her site savegocco.com and how this little machine has become a favorite tool for craftsters and designers alike. So in this, I do want to highlight that savegocco.com will probubly be your best bet for finding resources for the Print Gocco. I however, can only give you a direction from what I have bought and where the deals are.
Since hunting for the cheapest prices on inventory for myself, I found that Welsh Products has the best prices for supplies thus far. As the gocco becomes more popular, it's also becoming more expensive to acquire the inventory to run the machttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifhine so don't jump on the first price you see, shop around.
As for purchasing the actual machine, I think ebay will be your best bet although and Northwood Studios have the B5 for under $200.00. One other tip is to be careful about buying the inks in chunks from certain places, you could see a great price on say a 7 ink bundle but the shop offering them is located in japan so your paying more to ship them then what you bought them for. So definitely do your research before you jump the gun and buy, i made that mistake in the beginning and had to learn the hard way. All in all, it should be a fun buying experience so don't feel overwhelmed to just get it because you feel like they'll all be gone if you don't, find a good price first cause they haven't all disappeard yet.
