Should I Yudu?

I am eyeing my next craft purchase: Provocraft's Yudu. It's basically a glorified and upgraded gocco machine. I have a gocco and really love it, but it's just so small!

The appeal of the Yudu to me mainly is that I can printer on a larger surface area and reuse bulbs and screens. I also wonder if I can use regular silkscreen inks as well. Also, goccos are no longer or not going to be made anymore, though I know there is still quite a stash in Japan.


I browsed around the web for some yudu creations and I really like this cute silhouette shirt that knitting lemonade made!

I tried it at the SF Makerfaire and it seemed relatively easy, though I did not see the screen itself get made. Anyone else try it yet?

    i think you should get one - the sooner the better so you can practice on all sorts of media! and colors! i'm sure someone will go split on the cost with you!
