Here it is, my official Change of Address card, gocco’d by yours truly. Gocco, the mysterious and wonderful miniature screen-printer, is really as fun as everyones says it is. For more info check out this site, and this one.

On the C.O.A. is an illustration of our last home in California, a floating state CA, an illustration of the new place and a floating NY. In the center, a handwritten message, “we’ve moved,” and the new address. Just for fun I decided to print on a few napkins too. Not wanting to waste a whole screen just for the small design, I left part of the original screen covered up so the ink on the small design wouldn’t be pressed through it. Then, I did the reverse, covering up all but the small design. Make sense? It’s hard to explain unless you’re familiar with Gocco, but believe me, it was super easy and wonderfully satisfying. Well, the one trick was keeping the ink consistent. I was happy with the organic, stamp-like image and I didn’t concern myself too much with consistency and unbroken lines, but kudos to those gocco printers that do whole wedding suites and get solid, unbroken perfection over and over (like this person).
