#108: i think i know what i need to do.



the PG6 large is now offered at papersource. but for $395. not incl tax (though shipping is free). ouch right?

so then i asked 'the scoop' for help JUST IN CASE australians also happened to be fans of gocco (http://www.orangebeautiful.com/blog/post.php?post_id=246#comment). found a retailer in sydney, which is where i'll be traipsing around in august.

Hello: Do you have the PG-5 printer in your shop?

Yes we do have a Print gocco PG-5 in our store. The Kit is $299.95 and we are happy to open it and explain its functions and the various parts that come in the kit.
Kind Regards

with some handy dandy exchange calculations:
299.95 AUD=263.826 USD
hmmmm!

and then i thought...hey, why don't i get it straight from the distributor and get it shipped to our friends who we're visiting and reside in sydney.


Sub Total: $199.00
Delivery: $6.40
GST: $19.90
TOTAL: $225.30
225.30 AUD=198.079 USD
exactly. now all i need to figure out is if i should also order additional supplies. like bulbs and mesh screens and ink.

I've just discovered this blog...such a perfect idea! I'm in the $10,000 range as well. And I tell you what, you just stole my idea for DIY gocco invites.

Don't forget to look on Craigslist! I found a garage sale post on Craigslist LA that was selling a brand new never used Gocco for $100. I bought in hopes to use it for my DIY wedding invites for the wedding that I'll have when...haha...I get engaged.
