Multilingual Christmas Cards

I just posted these Christmas cards in the Chunky Pineapple Etsy shop over the weekend.  I created the image of a Christmas tree with different languages and different fonts.  How many of the languages can you identify?

Did you use the gocco for this one? I've noticed you use your gocco machine for most of your items and I find yours come out so amazing. My images never transfer perfect. I use a copy machine, what do you use?

Hi Kat: All of the cards that I have listed on my site are made on my Gocco. It's a work in progress. I print my images on a laser printer, sometimes in gray rather than black. Then after I burn the screen, I use some lighter fluid to take out any carbon bits that might be clogging the mesh. The first few prints I had came out less than perfect in different ways. Over time, you learn from your mistakes. Also, I've found that the runnier inks bleed more or smudge which makes less clean prints.

I agree, mistakes are what help me figure out my gocco more. Do you recommend a brand or type of laser printer? I've been meaning to get one for a while now but I'm not sure what type.

I think any laser printer will work. I have a brother 5250, I think, but it's at least 4 years old.
