HISTORY - Print Gocco is a Japanese colour screen printing system developed in 1977 by Noboru Hayama. Resembling a toy, the compact and self-contained printer is clean, quick and easy to use. At one time, nearly 1/3 of all Japanese households owned a Gocco. In the ’90’s, Print Gocco slowly started to develop a following in the indie-craft movement, gaining notoriety as a cost-effective and efficient method of printing multiples. In 2005 Riso (the parent company of Print Gocco) decided that it was no longer viable to produce the Gocco for many different reasons. A sad day.

MODERN HISTORY - In December of 2008, Riso shipped their last stock of supplies to loyal vendors and closed its doors on Gocco. In early 2011 Riso Released the GOCCOPRO a new screen printing system that takes the GOCCO personality adding a modern twist and like the phoenix rising from the fire the GOCCO lives on.

TODAY - Now in 2013 Riso have introduced a modern version of the GOCCO and in a modern age we again can play with the very unique fun handmade printing system that beautifully merges old and new.

FACT - Today we love the digital age we are living I can tell this because Apple has sold 89 million iphones alone. A staggering number.

FACT - In every city and town in the UK there are small craft fairs every weekend with thousands and thousands of creative people producing and selling their own hand made products. Labels and products need printing and what better way than screen printing.

MODERN FACT - Screen printing can be environmentally friendly, quick, efficient, clean, money making, creative and FUN!!
