- Flash bulbs are single use. You throw them out afterwards. I know I'm not the most eco conscious person but enough to not be too keen on the idea of chucking the bulbs after 1 use.
- Screens are essentially single use. I know that there is a method of saving and reusing the screen but because the frame is made of cardboard; the screens are really not meant to be washed and reused like the traditional screens with wooden frames.
- Screens being single use only, I would have to do all my prints in 1 go. Knowing my ability to stray from my projects mid way. It cannot be a good thing.
- It's expensive. Unfortunately there are no European suppliers which means I have to buy it and any supplies from the internet. Most sellers are in Japan and the price of the unit and shipping is a bit much.
There is also a tutorial for making your own screens at Instructables.
I'll use the money intended for a Print Gocco kit to make myself a UV light box for exposing the screens.
I also found this tutorial for making your own "Print Faux-co."
