The Flip Pal Mobile Scanner will be a popular item this Christmas. How many times have you wished you could scan something, but either didn't have a scanner at home, or you were away from home? Our family was visiting my husband's cousin, and she brought out a photo album of my husband's extended family. There were photos of his grandparents, great grandparents, extended cousins, and friends from his childhood. His cousin didn't have a scanner. I did take some photos of the pictures, just for memory sake, but they aren't great quality. The Flip Pal Mobile Scanner would have been perfect for the occasion!
The Flip Pal Mobile Scanner is lightweight, has no cables, and runs on batteries. You can scan photos, important documents, records of your family history, even detailed coins, jewelry, medals, hand-drawn art, and other precious keepsakes. My favorite use is for business cards. I always come home with so many cards when I attend conferences. I grabbed a few to show you how easy it is to scan.
The process of scanning is so easy. You simply place your item on the scanner, and hit the green button on the side.
Item too large? You can even take the lid off the scanner and turn the whole thing upside down on top of the object! Scan each area, then use the EasyStitch software to piece the item back together. If you meet with clients on a regular basis, you could even scan signed documents on the spot so they could be waiting for your client when they get back to their office!
You see that the item has scanned when it shows up in the display window.
Once you see that the item has scanned, you pop out the memory card. The scanner comes with a flash drive that has a slot for the memory card, so you just upload it to your computer.
How cool is that? I also have boxes of photos that I want to scan. This makes it so easy! I can scan while I work!
The next time we are visiting family, we will definitely be taking the Flip Pal with us! In fact, we were with other family over Thanksgiving, and one of my husband's cousins brought out a book they had made of my husband's aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. I was kicking myself that I didn't grab the scanner to take with me, but I raved so much about it they have probably bought one by now!
You can pick up a Flip Pal Mobile Scanner at the their website. You'll find a lot of helpful information there, too, like videos about how to use the Flip Pal in scrapbooking and other crafts. Even though October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Flip-Pal’s sponsorship continues through the end of the year with a special offer--receive a $20 discount on the Pink Bundle, which includes the Flip-Pal scanner, commemorative scanner lid and pink carrying case. Once the pink bundle is placed in the shopping cart, just enter the coupon code pink6 to enjoy the discount. The offer is good through Dec. 31. As a second-year sponsor, Flip-Pal donates 10% of the purchase price to the foundation in support of early detection programs. That's lots of awesomeness in my book!
I'll be giving away a Flip Pal Mobile Scanner soon in the Home for the Holidays giveaway event! Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss it!
