q&a about the ScanSnap scanner

My brother, Kevin (our favorite tech genius), turned us on to this scanner several years ago and we’ve never looked back. Not only are we basically paperless at home now, but we also use this scanner at the office, and it has become a total no-brainer for us to recommend this scanner to scrapbookers as well! I mean . . . you can scan a whole stack of your child’s artwork or your grandma’s documents or your photos from any decade and it’s just way, way faster than using a flatbed scanner.

So yeah, I’m a fan. That’s why I’m happy to share this with you. In fact, this video is a quick demonstration of me showing you how I use the scanner.

The Fujitsu iX500 ScanSnap Document Scanner is a total work horse and because it’s a bit of an investment, here are some of your questions answered. And who better to answer them than Kevin himself! Oh, and be sure to make it to the bottom of this post because . . . oh YEAH . . . Fujitsu is totally going to hook up one of YOU with a free ScanSnap!


Can you scan directly onto a memory stick?

You can scan straight to a memory stick. Just open ScanSnap Manager, uncheck “Use Quick Menu”, make sure Profile and Application are set as “Scan to Folder”, and then under the Save tab, browse and choose “Removable Disk D:”! Hit “Apply”, then “Ok” and you’re good to go, scanning straight to USB stick! Of course you can also scan directly to a Mac, PC, iOS device, or Android.

Do you add the scanned images to a Project Life® page or do you just keep the images and throw out the originals?

This is completely a personal decision and I can easily see users going both directions. For me personally, I would scan the images at high-resolution, keep that image in a photo library or archive of some sort, use it in a Project Life layout, and keep both the original image and the PL layout. The advantage to keeping the original high-resolution version is that you can use it for much more than that one PL layout and who knows when or how you will want to use it 1, 5, or 10 years down the road. As far as I am concerned, it’s better to err on the side of being conservative (and storage is cheap).

Becky here. (Sorry to butt in, Kevin.) This question could have meant a couple different things, so I’ll just add that if you’re asking about whether or not you should keep the actual, physical, original item (ex. your child’s artwork), I am of the opinion that hanging on to a few of the most treasured pieces is great, but once everything is scanned (or photographed for those items that are too large or too bulky for a scanner), you can totally toss those originals. Watch this video where I walk you through how I do that myself. It’s liberating. Really.

Can you scan greeting cards and other bulky items?

Fujitsu advertises that it will scan up to the thickness of a postcard, but, both the iX500 and iX100 can scan cards as thick as a drivers license and credit cards! They’re heartier than you may think! With that in mind, you should be fine to scan a standard greeting card (without added bulk attached to it, of course) if you open the card flat.

Do you know of a 12×12 scanner? I want to scan all the pages I have made for safekeeping.

Flatbed scanners capable of scanning 12″ or larger can get pretty expensive. It’s not exactly 12″, but the ScanSnap SV600 (contactless scanner) will scan up to 17″ x 11.8″. With those specs, it may be possible to squeeze another 0.2″ out of it. The SV600 is also great for scanning/archiving bound books. Its software is designed to remove the curvature of the pages when scanned.

This is great, but can you show more about the settings on the computer? It’s not completely intuitive. Also, do you have this set up both on the computer and phone? I can’t seem to figure that out.

Great question and you’re on to something here. Rather than answer the first part of your question in this post (I could talk for an hour on that topic alone because there is so much to cover), maybe we should twist Becky’s arm into doing a Facebook Live video so we can SHOW you how it works! Hmmmm…

As for what devices to set this up on, this is personal preference. Some people connect it only to their computer via USB. Others connect it only to their iPhone over WiFi. The vast majority of people that I help use the iX500 have it set up on both but mainly use it to scan to their computer. The WiFi scanning feature is certainly great to have, but I find that I don’t use it very often. Again, that’s just me.

What I really wanted to see is what happens when they get to the computer. Are they true to size? Do you have to crop them like with a flatbed scanner? How are the files named? How are they organized?

When you scan an image or document using the iX500, you choose the format of the resulting file based on how it’s scanned. It could be PDF or JPG — it’s up to you. You can also choose the resolution. Remember, the higher the resolution, the sharper the image is going to be. The images are technically “true to size,” but remember that pixel count is not the same as print size. Organization is also a personal preference. For me, I treat every photo scanned as if I took the picture on my iPhone. I scan it and import it into Photos (on my Mac).

Does it scan negatives???

No. In order to scan negatives, you will need a negative scanner (like the Epson Perfection V600, which is my personal favorite flatbed scanner).

Will it scan small receipts as well?

YES!!!! I use mine all the time to scan receipts. Define “all the time?” Daily. The iX500 is so smart (thanks to its built-in GI microprocessor) that even if a receipt is scanned crookedly, it will automatically straighten it for you! The smallest receipt that I scan on a regular basis is about the size of a credit card (airport parking receipt). Here’s a fun tip for you — I have my iX500 positioned just above the trash can in my office so when it scans a receipt, the receipt then falls straight into the trash. Now that’s efficiency!

After scanning, can you save it anywhere on your computer or does it have to be saved and accessed through a specific application?

With the software that Fujitsu provides, you can either scan directly to a predefined folder on your computer (or to email, or to the printer, or to a network drive, or to. . . you get the idea) automatically, OR you can have it prompt you for the name and location after it scans but before it saves the document. You can also scan straight to a memory stick! Just open ScanSnap Manager, uncheck “Use Quick Menu”, make sure Profile and Application are set as “Scan to Folder”, and then under the Save tab, browse and choose “Removable Disk D:”! Hit “Apply”, then “Ok” and you’re good to go!

What is the resolution it scans to — like for pictures?

You can change the resolution to whatever you need, but the maximum resolution is 600×600. You will find that it’s not the highest resolution image available (many consumer-grade scanners feature 1200 dpi capabilities), but I find that 600 dpi is plenty for nearly all of my scans. If I need higher resolution, I break out my Epson Perfection V600.

Do you ever use this for photos or just documents?

If I were to analyze how I use my iX500, I use it 80% of the time for documents (receipts, invoices, etc.) and 20% for images. That’s not a reflection of the scanner’s quality or capabilities. That’s a reflection on how I personally use it. I just don’t find that I am scanning images that often.

Becky here — interrupting again. (Bad habit, I know.) I just wanted to chime in as a fellow scrapbooker because I also use the scanner just about daily for receipts and documents as well, but I’ve also been in the thick of catching up on my kids’ scrapbooks, so I’ve been using the ScanSnap a TON for my kids’ artwork, papers, certificates, etc., and it’s been absolutely awesome. In fact, I’m working on a very beefy and information-packed blog post all about this very topic, so watch for that.

When you scan a stack does it create separate jpg files?

Yes. If you have a stack of 4 photos you are scanning, for example, the result will be 4 separate files. If you are scanning PDF, however, those same 4 photos (most likely documents, if you are scanning to PDF) will result in a single, multi-page PDF document.

What is the max paper size?

Fujitsu’s official marketing material states that it supports the following paper sizes: A4, A5, A6, B5, B6, Business Card, Post Card, Letter, Legal, and Custom Size.

Do you ever run into issues with photos getting jammed?

I don’t necessarily try to break the scanner, but in the 2 years that I have used mine, it hasn’t jammed once. I find that I treat it with respect and don’t push the limits, it will treat me just as well. Computers have feelings, too, you know! ;-)

What about papers that aren’t completely uniform — can you scan those in a pile?

Absolutely!! I routinely scan small stacks of papers that have a variety of paper sizes and the scanner figures all that out for me and even straightens them up automatically if they’re sucked in crookedly!

What does the process look like next? Assuming they are all saved as separate files? Sent to your computer? App Device? How easy is the next step?

If you initiate the scan from your iOS or Android device over WiFi, the files are saved in the ScanSnap app on that device. From there, you can move it to where it needs to go. If you initiate the scan from your computer (or use the one-touch scan button on the scanner), the resulting files will be saved on your computer somewhere. That “somewhere” is determined by your personalized ScanSnap app settings.

One more thing to note…

ScanSnap has a relatively new feature – ScanSnap Cloud – you can now scan straight to repositories like GoogleDrive, GooglePhotos, Dropbox, Evernote, OneDrive, etc!

For more tips and tricks you can also visit the ScanSnap Community blog!


Okay. Me again. See why we turn to Kevin with most of our tech questions? He is a gold mine of knowledge and experience and we’re grateful for his willingness to share. Being my brother for 40 years, he really does “get” scrapbookers and he’s an awesome teacher.

Guess what? I mentioned a giveaway and I wasn’t kidding! We’ve been in touch with Fujitsu and they have offered to give away a ScanSnap iX500 to one of our lucky readers. How cool is that?!? Leave us a comment below and tell us what you would use the scanner for first. Also mention where you live!

  60. Janice says:

    My Grandmother recently passed away so I would use the scanner to archive all of her documents and photos that are precious to me and my family. The best part is that it allows for each member to have a copy. Not only that, but I have four kids and will definitely be using it for scanning their artwork to put into their project life books as they grow! Of course digitizing all kinds of documents too is an added benefit. I have been eyeing this scanner for a while. It would be a blessing to win. Thank you for the opportunity! :)

    I just told my husband that we need to save up for this scanner!

    First order of business is going paperless with our documents. Second is scanning all of our print photos. Third is our son’s artwork (he’s 16 now!) so I can get to work on the album I want to give him at graduation. Fourth is scanning my parents photos. They just digitized their slides and it is the greatest gift ever! I want to return the gift and do their physical photos too.

    Thank you for another great giveaway!

    I am from Mesa, AZ and I would use it to scan my kids’ art and school work to catch up on their books. Also I have a slew of old pictures that I would scan to share with my siblings.

  93. Heather Arave says:

    Oh my gosh! This would be the best thing ever. I have 6 kids and years of pictures and art that needs to be digitized! I am a busy business owner that this would save me tons and tons of time! I have been in love with the way Becky has done her kids memory books and I would love to do the same. I do not like clutter so to be able to scan all the papers I’ve saved for years to put in a book would be so amazing!
    I live in St. John’s AZ

  94. Michelle Higgins says:

    Hi from Syracuse, UT!
    I would love to start the artwork my two children seem to create on a daily basis!
    I have also saved all the greeting cards we have received from baby showers, birthdays, holidays, etc that I eventually want to scan so I can keep the memories, without the bulk!

  95. Malea says:

    I live in NM and I would use the scanner to catch up on scanning my daughter’s art work and archiving family photos!

  96. Valerie says:

    I have thousands of pictures of my four adult children when they were young. I’d love to use this scanner to get them all scanned in.

    Reno, NV

  97. Jeannie says:

    I would use it first for all the old family photos I have collected and then share them in Dropbox with the rest of the family. This would be awesome!

    Jeannie in Oklahoma

  98. Cherice says:

    Children’s artwork and school stuff. Home documents. Old photos.

    Peoria, AZ

  99. Jennifer says:

    This is too cool! I could really use it to get caught up on my kids albums. I’ve got one graduating next year – it would be so nice to be caught up before then.

  100. Janell chaffee says:

    I would love to put a stack of my girls’ school work in to be scanned and not have to only do one at a time! How awesome is that?! So, that’s what I’d do first. Scan all of the school papers I’ve kept…and the greeting cards (I have boxes of them all!). My family currently resides in Buckeye AZ.🌵

  101. Kim Warne says:

    Beaverton OR

    The first thing I would use the scanner for is to scan very old photos and memorabilia of my Dad who passed away several years ago. I’m working on a memory book for him using project life products.

  102. Monique Meese says:

    First of all – AWESOME POST KEVIN!!! Big virtual high five for all the great information. Second, I would love to have one for my kids’ artwork & to share heritage photos with my family. As the scrapbooker – I’m the designated keeper of the pictures! – Cheyenne, WY

  103. Bao V says:

    Great info! It is such a coincident that I saw this post. I just started to put my son’s (who is now 15 years old), stuff together today so I can catch up with his scrapbooks. My goal is to have it completed by the end of summer. I recently just got a hold of my parent’s albums too and wanted to preserve the memories for them.

  104. Nicole says:

    I would first use the scanner to scan all my son’s medical records so I could upload them to Dropbox and have easy access to them. Then I would go thru my whole file cabinet and get everything scanned and organized.

  105. Krystal Standlee says:

    I’ve had this scanner on my wishlist since you first posted about it! I would love to go paperless at home and for my children’s homeschool. I’m also working on my own project photo rescue, so it would definitely come in handy for that!! I’m in Colorado, thanks so much for the chance to win!

  106. Susan says:

    I live in Sudbury, MA and I would use the scanner to scan business related documents, school-related documents, health forms, as well as art work from both of my kids. Thank you!

  107. Christie Lau says:

    I have been wanting this scanner ever since seeing you use this a few years ago?? It’s been on my wishlist and I would use it to scan my grandparents’ photos they’ve kept for years and years, as well as all the artwork and papers of my daughter’s work! She just started Kindergarten and I love your method of memory keeping of her artwork! Thanks!!

  108. Denise Beatty says:

    I would use it to scan the boxes and boxes of photos I have. Can’t wait to scrap those old photos.

  109. Melissa says:

    I live in Rhinelander, Wisconsin and I would scan the bins of artwork and keepsakes from my daughter’s school years. She’s a sophomore and I have A LOT of catching up to do.

  110. Monica says:

    I can’t decide what I would use it for first. To scan all important papers to have a more paperless and clutter free home or to scan some of my kids school papers. I have kept everything over the last 15 years of being a mom and would love to get it into scrapbooks and off of shelves.

    Terre Haute, IN

  111. Sandy Sh says:

    In August 2016, my 88 yr-old parents’ home flooded with 3 feet of dirty, nasty water. What photos we were able to save are in a box. They cannot be shared, looked at, or enjoyed because they are almost a biohazard.

    I’d use this scanner on these old black and white photos to make new, fresh copies that can be shared with the younger generations, so they will know about those that came before them.

  112. Danielle says:

    I would use it for all my kids’ artwork instead of snapping pics of everything! We live in Boulder in the beautiful state of Colorado!!!

  113. Jill says:

    Hi! I would LOVE LOVE to win this scanner. I have 3 kids 9, 7 and 3 and I work full time outside the home. I’ve dabbled a little in scrapbooking and have tubs and tubs of my kids art. I’ve been thinking how to incorporate that into my memory keeping for my kids and I think the scanner is just the item I need. Time is at a premium in my life and with a history of Memory loss in my family later in life I think preserving these should be a priority for my family! Thanks so much for your ideas and helpful information. And my location is smack dab in the middle of the country-Lincoln, NE!

  114. Julie B says:

    Hi,

    I love in So Ca and would use the scanner for kids work that I want to put in PL, receipts, and various other things for my classroom.

  115. Jill M says:

    My husband and I are empty nesters. I have been overwhelmed with memorabilia and papers for a very long time and would love to go paperless. My daughter is 22 and I still need to complete an album for her. I truly believe this scanner would help me get a handle on the “paper tiger” and finally get those memory books completed. Thanks!
    Fairborn, Ohio

  116. Lisa Conway says:

    I have so much that I need to scan. I’ve been working on a book for my parents of all their old memorabilia (newspaper clippings, pictures, certificates, cards, etc.) and this would be so useful. I would love to scan those things so that all of my sisters can also have a copy! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I’m in Connecticut!

  117. Kimberly Scott says:

    I would use the ScanSnap scanner to go COMPLETELY PAPERLESS, that means scanning photos, bills, receipts, etc. Going paperless has been my goal for a while now and I have just not been able to do it probably because of not having the right scanner. I live in Laurel, MARYLAND.

  118. Maria mast says:

    I would scan all of my kids artwork and school stuff. This scanner would be amazing!

  119. Oh my goodness I would LOOOOVE this scanner!!! I have three kiddos and tons of bins of artwork that desperately need scanned!! I would put this to use right away!! Thanks so much!! I love love love the inspiration you provide!! Jessica (in Marion, Iowa)

  120. Miriam Baier says:

    I would use it to make a dent in my family’s historical documents dating back to the late 1800s and finally get that part of my memory keeping well under way here in Huntsville, Ohio. Thank you

  121. Christine says:

    This scanner sounds fantastic! I’m dying to scan all of my old printed photos … Like everyone else, I have tons of them! I live in Alaska but I wish I lived somewhere warmer.

  122. Jeane Boast says:

    I would use it to scan all my boys art/papers to get them into albums (the last 17 yrs 😳). Would also scan receipts for work. Winter Garden, FL

  123. Sandy Sh says:

    Baker, Louisiana

  124. Joanna says:

    Mainly for my kiddos artwork (and my artwork from back in the day . . . ). From Atlanta, GA

  125. Mary Henson says:

    I would finally get rid of the bulky-stub my toes/knees/legs file cabinet and scan all that stuff! I’m in (currently sunny and not raining) Seattle, Washington!

  126. Elise f says:

    I would use it to scan all my son’s artwork. This is his first year at school and is bringing home a lot of art!!!
    I live in Victoria, Australia

  127. Lacie Lafferty says:

    Lacie Lafferty – Loma Linda, CA
    I would use the ScanSnap scanner for literally everything! I currently have a portable scanner that I love to death but the ScanSnap is like 100% better in what it scans… Mine can only do docs but not pictures etc. I love scanning things for scrapbooks but currently I don’t have a good method and this ScanSnap would be a dream to add to my system!

  128. AmyA says:

    I would start the process to moving paperless. Paper consumes to much time and energy. Also my kids artwork and school papers for PL.

  129. Melissa says:

    Please pick me!!!! My husband and I would fight over the first thing to scan. I would choose our Christmas Cards, or wedding photos, or photos from before our iPhones existed. My husband would scan receipts, legal documents and his paperwork for the US Navy Reserves. We have been drooling over this scanner from your instastories.

  130. Andrea West says:

    I want to scan all my non-digital photos from my kids’ childhoods – the 1980s and 1990s. Also I have lots of memorabilia, kids stuff, travel stuff, and more.

  131. Pamela Sanders says:

    Pam here in PA. I actually bought one of these recently, but would love to win one to raffle to benefit a local women’s group. I thought it would be fun to give chances to win it with a donation at our next crop! A group of us get together and scrapbook and hang out and just enjoy getting away for the weekend. Thanks for sharing this scanner. It’s a gem! Thank you for always sharing cool things to make our lives easier!

  132. Melissa says:

    I forgot…chapel Hill, NC

  133. AmyAndrews says:

    I would start the process to moving paperless. Paper consumes to much time and energy. Also my kids artwork and school papers for PL. I live near Minneapolis

  134. Heather Larson says:

    I would scan my family photos (that go back to my grandparents as kids) that I just finished organizing a few weeks ago with my mom’s help. There are so, so many and flatbed scanning seems incredibly daunting. My father passed away 12 years ago the 13th of this month and preserving his memories for my children has become vitally important recently as my oldest (age 6) is starting to ask about him. I know you didn’t ask what we would scan next, but next I would do my husband’s family photos once I finish organizing them as his mother also passed away on the 13th of this month when he was 16 and his dad had early onset dementia shortly after and passed away in 2009. So many cherished memories that need preserved for so many reasons <3

    • Heather Larson says:

      Forgot to add I’m from a small town in West Central IL about 30 minutes from Peoria.

  135. Lisa says:

    I have wanted this scanner for so long! I would use it to scan all the photos from my childhood to make photo books for my family. Also to scan my children’s artwork- I would love to make all the pictures of their artwork into a book instead of just stored away in a pile!
    Sandy, Utah

  136. Angela S. says:

    I am from Oconomowoc, WI

    I would use this to scan in our boxes and boxes ( did I mention boxes) of photos!

    My question is can you change the date when you scan them in on a MAC? I would prefer to have them at least scan to the correct year if that makes any sense 😀

  137. Abbey howe says:

    I would catch up on all our family pictures and kids art work!
    Thanks for putting this together
    I live in Virginia

  138. Heather Larson says:

  139. Wendy says:

    Oh this is awesome! Would love to win, fingers crossed!

  140. Tanya Whiteoak says:

    This sounds totally awesome. This would get a big workout at my place. I think I would start with some old photos without negatives and then is move onto the kiddo’s artwork. I would definately set it up like Kevin so that once scanned, any other paperwork like receipts would fall into the rubbish bin! Great idea – thanks for sharing xx. Tanya (Queensland, Australia)

  141. Katie Felts says:

    I will be helping my mom back up all her photos and “stuff” from our childhood. Once it’s backed up, I plan to get her involved in project life for an easy way to create the photo books for all four of her children! Florence, KY!

  142. Tricia Shelton says:

    I would definitely use it to scan my kid’s artwork and school stuff. I have a Sphomore and an 8th grader. All of their stuff is divided into years and stored in Manila envelopes with information written on the front like their school year, teacher name, significant events, etc. I have the organization down. Now I just need to get them scanned and into albums via PL app. Would love this. I am from Goreville, IL.

  143. Michelle says:

    First… I’d scan all the piles of papers that are all over my house. Invoices, recipes, receipts, schoolwork, Bible studies. The list goes on and on. Next, I’d scan photos that haven’t been scanned so we have digital copies.

    Mesa, Arizona

  144. Linda Utley says:

    I was so inspired watching Becky help Maria with her children’s memories! That’s exactly what I will use the scanner for if I win it! You think Maria had a lot of memories to sort through! I would be embarrassed if you saw how much I have saved! 😬

  145. Toni says:

    I would love to scan the pictures of my children growing up (they are married now) to make books for them for Christmas- this scanner would make that so much easier!

  146. Dorene says:

    I would use the scanner for photos, my son’s artwork and papers, recipes and misc paperwork. I live in California.

  147. Missy Browning says:

    I would use the scanner for my girls albums. My middle child will be a senior next year and you have inspired me to get to work on her albums before she graduates next year!!

  148. Laura says:

    I would love a scanner to get caught up on my kids’ artwork albums! And help my father-in-law scan and organize his hundreds and hundreds of old photographs! I live in California!

  149. Karen Schmidt says:

    I would use it for my back log of 4 kids school art.
    I live in Byron, MI

  150. Jenn says:

    I would love this scanner!! I would use it to scan the kids artwork as I tend to want to keep everything they make! 😉 And I would use it to scan my grandmothers old photos to put into books for all of my aunts/uncles and cousins so we can all have these treasured family memories! Thank you so much for the opportunity! Hoping your son’s cheek feels better soon! Have a great weekend!

  151. Janesse says:

    I have a serious issue letting go of paper. I have a flat scanner, but find that it’s very time consuming to scan one page at a time. I would use the scanner to create digital files, purge the paper and to create scrapbooks for my kids school years that I am 12 years behind on.

  152. Jenn says:

    Sorry, meant to also add I live in Missouri!! You were just here!!! 😊👍

  153. Amy says:

    Wow! Awesome give away! Thank you! I would scan documents and pictures dating back to the early 1900’s of my grandparents and parents, mine and my son’s school papers and art projects, and now my granddaughters works of the heart :-)
    Mansfield PA

  154. Carrie says:

    What a great tool for a variety of uses. I’m guessing I would use it about 50/50. Half being for documents and receipts and the other half for older family photos. I have sent away to have my pictures scanned by what was supposed to be a professional service and they came back at such a low dpi that I could not print photos larger than 4 x 6. Sounds like this scanner would resolve that issue. Thanks for offering the give away.

  155. Jagruti patel says:

    I would love it scan many things in one go instead of one at a time. For all the bits and bobs that i want to include in my books….like cards and art and all sorts of things! Thanks for the chance!

  156. Robin says:

    This would be perfect for school work and for the boxes of childhood photos I would love to get into an album. Kingman, AZ

  157. Tammy D says:

    I would scan my kids art work first and then photos that need digitized 😊

  158. Dana says:

    Wow! What an awesome giveaway! I would use this first to scan old pictures that need to be digitized and for my kids artwork. I have a lot of pictures from my grandparents that I would love to scan and be able to share with other family members.

  159. Dana says:

    Forgot to mention, I live in Kansas.

  160. Tammy D says:

    I would scan my kids artwork first then the many photos that need digitized 😊
    Idaho

  161. Tracy says:

    I would scan all of my old pictures so that I can have a digital backup and make more pages in the project life app. Right now I take pictures of them with my phone, but that doesn’t always work well depending on the photos finish and the lighting. Pennsylvania!

  162. Kelliann says:

    I would use it for my kids school stuff and to get all of our financial paperwork organized-a paperless home sounds like a dream!!

  163. Rachel says:

    I would love this scanner! I have a soon to be Sophmore in high school and 7th grader. All their papers I have saved are in an unorganized mess. I would particularly love to scan all my daughter’s journal pages from when she was in 1st grade. This scanner would be amazing for that and such a time saver! Thanks for the opportunity from a follower in Arkansas!!

  164. SarahN says:

    What a nice giveaway! I would love to win. If I won, I would use it to scan 30+ years of photos and family artwork, plus many more years of heritage photos. Currently, I do not have a working scanner. I had a really good one, but with the switch from XP to Win7 it no longer worked with my computer, and an upgraded one simply wasn’t in the budget. So I am very behind on projects that need scanned. This would be a very useful tool for me. Thanks again for this chance to win!

    Thank you for all the information. This scanner is on my “must have list”. It would be running full time scanning endless school papers and family history research! Live in Orange County, California

  168. Robin says:

    As a teacher for 16 years, I’ve saved tons of student artwork, sweet notes, and memories from my classroom. I like to scrapbook each year but space is limited. It would be so nice to scan these in and use the App to simplify my pages. I’m now a mother of two children who also generate lots of artwork. I would enjoy using the scanner to assist with their albums and memory keeping. Thank you for this post. I really learned a lot.

  169. Abby says:

    I would scan printed photos from my childhood.

  170. Sean Eyring says:

    I’d start with scanning all the scrapbook pages I made “back in the day” in order to get the photos stored digitally because, you know, I’m old, and those were all “developed” photos that pre-date digital copies. That way I’d have digital copies, and then could re-scrapbook them in my down time with the Project Life app.

  171. whitney says:

    I have been looking at this ever since you mentioned it and showed the video of you using it!!!! I would use this to scan my children’s art work, pictures of me and my family when growing up (my husbands also), my husbands mission, there are so many pictures! Crossing my fingers, and even my toes! ;)

    Lopez Island, WA
    One of the things I had hoped Becky would give us more insight into was how to work the scanner she has~this blog post was so enlightening! I would use the scanner to save my kids school & art work that I have in big boxes & have done nothing with (they are 29 & 26!) and then print them up for their childhood school books that I am so wanting to start!! I would also love to scan old family photos to preserve! I can see using it to scan paperwork from our daily lives too & how it would enable us to lessen the piles of paper, receipts & bills!

  173. Hannah Murphy says:

    My moms old black and white photos from when she was a kid! And then my husbands mission pictures, because he served just before digital cameras came out. And then our wedding photos for the same reason!

  174. Michelle says:

    I inherited a box full of letters written by a relatable of my husband during WWII along with a few photographs and newspaper clippings. I’ve always wanted to scan at least some snippets to make photo books for his family members that would like to have them, but with two kids 2 & under, it’s just not a project that will happen anytime soon. I don’t trust the steer feeder on my current flatbed scanner!

  175. Shelley says:

    Pick me! Pick me! LOL!!!😜😜
    But seriously, I would love to win this scanner. I have stacks of pictures from my 35mm camera days. My camera was a Minolta XG-7, which I LOVED!! I purchased it with graduation money and tips from waitressing and finally had saved up enough after the summer of 1979! Loved that camera!
    This scanner would also be useful for photos at my mothers has and the photos she has from my grandmother. Sadly, grandma passed in 2005 and the details of who was in many of the photos was not recorded 😢 And Mom isn’t sure who some of the people are.
    It would also be used for scanning receipts and other documents.
    Thank you for your great products, Becky & team!!! Love the project life app!!!! ❤️❤️
    Wishing all a wonderful weekend!!

  176. Patti says:

    Gosh, that scanner sounds awesome. I envision myself using it to help declutter all the paperwork in my life — receipts, documents, etc. and also to digitize the boxes old old photos. I live in Honolulu.

    Help my 78 year old mom (who loves using your app on her iPhone and iPad during the hot summers of Quartzsite, Arizona- to scan her keepsakes from years past and to help my daughter (who does not scrapbook, I make them for her kids)-to scan their schoolwork/artwork before they get thrown away.

  178. Julie Warnick says:

    I would scan all of my kids school papers! Oh, to be free of all that paper clutter! Thanks for all the inspiration Becky! I’m so excited to take control of my memory keeping!

  179. I would use it for kiddo’s artwork and papers to save… then heritage photos. Did some a while ago with a flatbed, and it was very time consuming. I’m out in Ohio. Thanks!!

  180. Cathy Smith says:

    I would be so excited to win this scanner! I have 3 kids and lots of memories to document. I live in Orlando, FL.

  181. Carolyn says:

    Hello from Atlantic Canada! I’d love to use this to scan all of my daughter’s creative masterpieces and school papers to make an amazing photobook for her highlighting her school years.

  185. Karin Wickenhauser says:

    Oh my goodness! How ironic it this that you put this on your blog TODAY?? I literally JUST hit send on a question about this scanner an hour ago. I sent it through customer service on your site, as a matter of fact. I guess great minds think alike! So, my question was about weather you get a big multi-item file of jpegs when scanning a pile of photos and BINGO! – Kevin answered it above. Sweet! If I don’t win one, I’ll surely be adding it to my Christmas list. I have tons of old photos that I would love to convert to digital and upload to drop box. We had our house flood last year and it was a real wake-up call for me as far as back-ups go. In addition, I’ve had 2 family members who lost everything in house fires. Given that, I’m somewhat of a drop box hoarder now!

    Thanks for all the great information. Sending appreciation from Minnesota!

  186. Emily Clark says:

    I am sooo far behind on all my kids and family albums! This scanner would be a huge piece of the puzzle to get me started and get rid of all the “stuff.” Please pick me! Vernal, Utah

  187. Laina Hudson says:

    The first thing I would scan is the school projects/drawings and records that I have stashed in my filing cabinets. I can’t seem to get rid of them but they take up so much space.

  188. Lindsey says:

    Montreal, Canada.
    I have been DREAMING of affording one of these scanners. I have so many plans for it, but the first thing I would do is scan all my family photos for both sides of my family. I’m in the beginning stages of documenting our family history to share using the project life app and this would be a massive help in getting the thousands of photos where they need to be, safe in the cloud and shared with family.

  189. Kiera says:

    I would love to use the scanner for concert memorabilia (tickets, set lists, wristbands, etc) that I’ve collected over the years. I have a ton of it, and if anything happened to the box I keep it all in, I’d have a backup! I’d also use it to keep copies of photo booth strips, old family photos, things I’ve collected from any trips taken. SO many possibilities!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  190. Laurie in Texas says:

    Scanning just may be the thing that keeps me from going crazy!!! I have wondered (and frankly, stressed) what in the world to do with the 18 years plus of memorabilia and how to preserve the treasures in a meaningful way. Now I know! Looking forward to learning more about this and giving this a whirl!!!

  191. Kathy Sizemore says:

    I would use the scanner to scan the thousands of photographs I have from both mine and my husbands childhoods. Being that we’re both only children and our families are both deceased I have thousands of heritage photographs I have inherited from both our families. I have recently become involved with genealogy having connected with lost family in France where my great grandparents immigrated from. Needless to say its become very important to me to preserve our families newly found history for my children. Safe to say I’m going to be busy for awhile. PS-I live in Temecula, CA about an hour north of San Diego.

  195. Abi says:

    My family live all over the world (Canada, America, England, Scotland, Australia, and some travelling) and I have just borrowed all of my grandparents photo albums to scan the photographs so I can send out copies to all my family members.

    My husband is one of 12 children and I have also taken on the project of scanning all of their family memories. Again with family all over the world. It is a big project and I feel like I’m slightly insane taking on the responsibility.

    However, I also feel so strongly the importance of everyone having copies of family photographs that I am happy to put in the time and effort. I’m happy to do the work. Though scanning on a flat bed is making the process take a LOT longer.

    These projects would be my top priority. I live in England. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win. I would love to win and would definitely put it to good use!

Winning one would be so great! Thanks for the chance! 🤞 PS…we live in Oklahoma. 😁

  212. Paige says:

    First – Thank you so much for the opportunity. The question should be what would I not use the scanner for. I have been in a slump with how to get my kids projects interjected into their scrapbook without keeping boxes and boxes of stuff. What a dream it would be to win this! Your posts and the info you constantly share is very inspiring! Thank you.

That would be project number 2. And the possibilities from there are endless! Thanks for the chance for the great giveaway!!!

    In my parents photo albums, I have post-it notes on all of the pictures that I would love a copy of. The very first thing I would do is to scan all of those photos— for me, and I’m sure my parents would like to have those Post-it notes out of their family albums :-)

    A scanner would help tremendously. Thank you!

  240. Maggie says:

    I would help my Mom scan the numerous boxes of photos we found buried in my grandmother’s house- the whole family wants access to them, so she said she would scan them and save them for everyone to have. She’s fully overwhelmed by her promise right now- this would be such a huge help for her.

  312. Suzanne Trickel says:

    I would use it to scan documents from kids school years – to capture the memory in their scrapbooks and duplicate the memory in some of my ‘family’ scrapbooks. Also – to start a more organized approach of keeping receipts, rather than just a folder they get thrown into.

    Thanks!

  313. Celena says:

    I have bags of pictures from my late grandparents house I need to organize. Unfortunately when they passed away, no one wanted their old photo albums or bags of pictures except for my parents and I. There have been many things I have found including newspaper articles and even a Purple Heart award thrown in a bag. It’s been emotional and exciting all at the same time. I would definitely use the scanner for this.

  314. Maribel Carmona says:

    Oh the list of things that I need to scan; however I would start with the older photographs.

  315. Jana Kennedy says:

    I would first scan all my kids artwork and schoolwork!

  316. Belinda says:

    Wow! I have so many things I want to scan. My children’s baby photos and memorabilia. There school stuff – they are now 15 and 12. And I would love to delve into my own personal history. If I had this scanner it would be getting a huge workout. I live in Canberra, Australia.

  317. Jana Kennedy says:

    Oops email address typo in my comment above:)

  318. Melissa says:

    I would use it to scan my daughter’s artwork and my childhood photos to start.

    This scanner sounds amazing! I have so many pictures in boxes, this would be so helpful. Not to mention all the art work my grandkids generate! 😃

    Erie PA

  320. Megan Ditzler says:

    I would LOVE to scan the insane amount of photos I have sitting in boxes and plastic bins waiting to be let out and freed for everyone to see! Having the scanner would make all my scrapbook dreams come true and take away the guilt of those adorable and memorable photos hiding away and allow me to get them into layouts and printed into albums for my whole entire family to reminence!

  321. Kellie says:

    Would love to use this for my girls artwork and school work!!!
    I’m in Newfoundland Canada
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  322. SandraA says:

    I would use it to scan my older photos (1970’s), and pictures I inherited from my mom when she passed away. I would also use it for my kids school work I have saved up FOREVER.

    Tracy, CA

  323. Kirstin Kelemen says:

    I would do something similar to what you were working on for Maria’s photo rescue – I would scan items for an album for my son who is graduating. Your photo rescue for Maria really hit home for me. I would also sort and then scan my favorite photos from pre digital times. I’ve had this scanner in my “favorites” list on amazon since you first mentioned it!

    Olathe, KS

  324. Elisabeth says:

    Totally would use this scanner for children’s projects documentation into the app but also the document/ receipt route as well!!! Currently we reside in VA, miles outside of Washington, DC.

  325. Byrdie says:

    ❤ I have had my eye on this for some time and have been saving for it!! I think it will be a game changer!! My very first project would be to scan all my mom’s old photos! Then to go paperless!! Pick me from Glasgow MT!!

  326. Amber Cederberg says:

    Oh Becky!!! This would be a dream come true. Your videos and feeds have been such an inspiration to me. I would love to get this scanner and start catching up on my sweet kiddos scrapbooks. I am so behind. I do have all of their school work in folders, but I don’t want them to stay there. I have been discouraged because my hard drive died (10 years of everything!! And it was my only back up.) I need this boost to get me back going and to stop this procrastinating stage. Side note. I have been catching up on your videos and I am now backing up to multiple sites. Thank you for helping us in more ways than you know!

  327. Wendy hav says:

    I would LOVE one of these scanners at home! I have a lot of kids papers and cards that I would love to save electronically for archival and memory purposes! Hamilton, MI

  328. Lori Yenter says:

    I would love to use this to get all of my 7 and 9 year old daughters’ art scanned. I would also love to go my parent’s hose to scan all of their old photos. I need to do a better job of getting their story into our family story.

    Thanks for this awesome chance!

    Hi! I’m Laura from Northern California. I don’t have children, but my mom has suitcases (I know odd way to store documents) full of things my sister and I created, or awards we received, all our report cards, test results, etc. since pre-school. We are now 29 and 30! I would use this to scan all of those items and help her scrapbook them with the project life app and get them in albums! It would free up so much space and most importantly this way everything can actually be viewed and enjoyed.

  330. Shelly Howse says:

    Scan everything! Recipes, pictures, kids art work, magazine tear outs, work projects, the list is endless!!!

  332. Jennika Sheldon says:

    I would to scan the hundreds of printed picture I already have in boxes so i not only have the ability to organize this photos, but create pages in the app and consider those memories preserved! I would also love to scan my kiddos millions of art projects and school work so I don’t end up work boxes and tubes 5 years down the road!

    I am in Utah!

  333. Brittney Wanlass says:

    I have been dying to help my mom with her own project life photo rescue. It’s on my to do list but if I’m being honest, even I am overwhelmed with the task at hand. It would be nice to get our hands on this scanner so that it can help with our project. And I think it would help us gain a desire to tackle our family history after my mom’s photo rescue!

  334. Deborah Devereaux says:

    I live in Pleasant Grove, Utah and I would love a scanner to capture my kid’s artwork and also for all those photos that I have that were taken before the digital era!

  335. Carol says:

    I’m dying to get my hands on one of these babies! As the designated family historian (family of 8) I have all the family photos and documents going back 100 years. Don’t even get me started on the memorabilia from my own 5 children.
    Murrieta, CA

  336. Vanessa says:

    Since I saw this on your video series getting your kids books together I have wanted one of these!! I will use it initially for the kids school work and papers and I also really want to put my physical PL into digital form just by scanning each card and photo! I would also love to go more paperless! The clutter drives me crazy! I’m in Chestertown, MD!

  337. Tammy Espino says:

    I am 17 years behind (I know you don’t like that phrase! …But it’s true!!). We are moving to s new state at the end of May. I would LOVE to get things scanned before we move so I don’t have to lug them with us! I am in So Cal moving to Meridian, ID.

  338. Donna DiMercurio says:

    I would love this!! I have two adult children, and tons of schoolwork, art work, travel, and sports stuff etc….we will be downsizing and moving to our new home in September. I would love to be able to scan all their stuff to simplify all the memorabilia we have! Plus of course it works great with Project Life which I love! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!!

  339. Jillian Smith says:

    I would use the scanner to finally start putting my son’s scrapbook together! Also, I would start my new baby’s scrapbook so I don’t get behind like I did with his brother. And we live on Idaho!

  340. Charlotte says:

    I would scan old family photos and share them with my siblings. I’m in Lubbock, TX.

  341. Jen S says:

    I would definitely use this to scan all of my girl’s baby stuff first! I have all sorts of things that I don’t want to lose and need to make copies of.

    -Eden Prairie, MN

  342. Lesley says:

    I would love to take on Becky’s recent project on catching up on the endless pile of my son’s school and art work. I am finally realizing I can’t keep everything! I am in CT.

  343. Amy Versprille says:

    I would start with my daughters preschool art and would quickly move to scanning all of my Grandmother’s handwritten recipe cards then I would move to my mom’s acid photo books from us as kids. Thus Scansnap would be well loved.

  344. Allie says:

    I would start with my sweet little toddler’s artwork. It’d be great to start digitizing his artwork. And I know I’d move on to the photographs of me as a child that aren’t digital. I’d love to preserve those digitally (and then in the PL app).
    Allie in Livermore, CA

  345. JENNIFER K says:

    My grandma recently passed away and we’ve been trying to figure out what to do with all her photos and memorabilia, everyone wants them. We could scan everything then everyone would be able to have them.

  346. Amy says:

    I too have lots of kids’ school memorabilia that I want to scan.

  347. Regina says:

    I would love 1 of these to scan all my kids’ stuff & old family photos. I’m in Colorado!

  348. Joyce says:

    Now that my boys are 16,19,20 I am going back and scanning EVERYTHING for memorabilia books. I also have tons of old photographs that my mom gave me because she knows I will scan them and make cds for my four siblings. 😊 Currently my scanner only does one photo at a time. I don’t work during the summer so catching up is my job/project this summer and this scanner would make the project so much easier. Looking forward to summer in Syracuse, NY. ☀️

  349. Brenda Davis says:

    I would be using this to primarily scan all of my print photos from high school and all the photos my parents have sitting in a box at their house. Then distributing those digital photos to my siblings on CD along with documents for family history work.
    Brenda Davis – Magna, Utah

  350. Dominika Buttigieg says:

    Still feeling overwhelmed at the amount to archive….and the digital file process…but we all gotta start somewhere.

  351. Kimberly says:

    I would love to use it for scanning the boxes and boxes of photos and memorabilia from before the digital age. We didn’t get a digital camera until 2004, so our three son’s baby photos through Kindergarten are all in printed form. We live in Frisco in the great state of Texas!

  352. Katrina Zack says:

    After my parents list there house in a fire – I have been on photo recovery mode- so any time I get images from family or friends I have to stand in a local store and scan them to a disk. So now with this scanner I could do this quickly and efficiently from my home!

    Whitecourt, Alberta, Canada

  353. Sylvia B says:

    First I would start with scanning my three girls artwork so I can get their school albums caught up. Then I would scan my old photos and my husbands so I could make a PL album about us and our childhood years for each of my girls. And of course working towards going paperless. Thank you Becky & team, including Kevin, for your constant inspiration! I live in Rockville, Md.

  354. Nichole says:

    Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
    I have boxes of stuff to catch up on and this scanner would be amazing!!!! Thanks for the great post and the chance to win!

  355. Jennifer says:

    My first project would be to scan in ALL of my Grandma’s pictures and copies of documents that she’s uncovered in her genealogy research! It amazes me as to how far back her documentation goes… And terrifies me that decades of her hard work could be lost in a moment. During the digitizing process, I would love to get all the originals into Project Life albums too! Thank you so much for all your inspiration!!!! I’m from Alberta, Canada.

  356. Naomi says:

    I would use this for absolutely everything.
    I’m a teacher so I have a lot of things I need to scan and keep on record. I usually do this at work but it would be so handy to be able to do this at home. I’m just getting into backing things up digitally so would love to scan all old photos as well as scrapbook pages. Yeah…. I would use it for everything :)

  357. I love to work on Family History projects and I would scan photos of my ancestors and share with family members. I am also planning on starting my sons elementary years…….lots of art projects and writing assignments. It would be so helpful and useful!!

    West Jordan, Utah

  358. Terry Annis says:

    I had the opportunity to use this same scanner at work and it is unbelievably dependable, easy to use, and I would be ecstatic to win one. My first DSLR was a film Nikon. Being the mother of an only child, I have years of pictures that I still haven’t scrapbooked yet without a digital copy of the pictures. Additionally, for several years I was able to print pictures in 5×7 for the same price as 4×6-(before I knew what scrapbooking was) that size takes up a lot of scrapbook space. Would love to archive those. Thanks for the giveaway!

  359. lisa elder says:

    Wowzers! Thank you for the opportunity to win this great scanner. If I win it, I would use it to scan all of the family heritage photos, my 20 years of scrapbook pages (65 12×12 albums)… and my childhood photos (from the 60s, 70s, 80s)…

  363. Kari says:

    I would scan a ton of file folders full of memories, papers I want to keep and photos! Plus I’m just starting with preschool stuff and this would be a great way to keep it up through all the years and future kids!

  373. Monica Melchor says:

    I have a shelf filled with old family albums that I have it high on my bucket list to scan. I also have old notebooks and projects to tackle as part of my #projectdigitize.

    Monroe, NC

  377. Glynis Evans says:

    Wow! I would scan the HUNDREDS of family photos I have, many from around 1900. Not only would that give me a digital copy of the precious one-off photos, but then I’d be able to share them with family AND scrap them in the PL app!!!

    Thank you for the chance!

  381. Chelsea says:

    Ohhh, going paperless at home sounds really appealing. I would use it for that or to scan everything from my 4 kids that still needs to go in their scrapbooks!

  382. Becca Zacharewicz says:

    Oh my gosh! This scanner is awesome! I have stuff I have been holding on to for 20 years because my kids made it. The scanner is so much faster and more efficient than my standard printer/scanner where you scan one thing at a time…..takes forever with my photos. Thank you for the opportunity to win this awesome scanner!

    I am from Winter Haven, Florida!

  383. Connie Childress says:

    I would use this scanner for everything! It would be so nice to try to go paperless with bills and receipts, but in addition to that I have many heritage photos, kids artwork and a few years worth of photos of my daughter BEFORE digital cameras! Thanks Kevin and Beckie for such good information. I’m from Tennessee.

  384. Jenn L says:

    I would love this scanner to get set up with a system for organizing my kids art work. My son is only in his second year of preschool (and my daughter starts next year) and I can see how quickly I will be drowning and overwhelmed if I don’t start this and get a system down NOW. My fingers are crossed!! This would be a huge Godsend.

  385. Susan M says:

    My kids are 19 and 23. I have bins and boxes of all their paper “stuff”. I would love to scan it all (or some of it) and get rid of the paper.

  391. Maggie Hurder says:

    OH MY! I would love this scanner! I have thousands of photos from my childhood, early adult years, and the first 3 years of my oldest child’s life that I would scan. I would do my parents photos too!

    Oops forgot to say I’m from Vancouver, WA just across the river from Portland, OR :)

  393. Kristin says:

    Hello from the great Mitten State of Michigan! I think the first things I’d scan would be pictures of me. It’s time to work on telling my story so it’s accessible for my kids & future family.

  394. Corinna Chung says:

    I have over 14 years (4 kids!) pictures to catch up on and I am feeling overwhelmed. My house is a paper magnet and managing the paper tornado is a huge chanllenge. Help!

  395. Kristine says:

    Tax time is such a chore! I’d love to scan all my receipts.
    Ann Arbor, MI

  397. Amber r says:

    Oops I’m from nj

  398. Kim says:

    I would love this to scan a bunch of photos that I have in boxes, and to help scan family photos. After my older sister got evacuated last year from a huge forest fire, I would love to make everyone’s childhood photos safe and digital incase something like that were to ever happen again and we weren’t able to save anything.
    I’m in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

  399. Sarah Innerst-Peterson says:

    Well, first of all, I would NOT use my scanner as something to balance on when I try to reach high shelves, nor would I keep my glass of iced tea on it. I would NEVER call it names or abuse it in any way. I would love it like one of my children and sing to it and feed it important documents and heirloom photos and kids’ artwork and my pictures from the days before cell phones (we call those days “yore”). I would dust it regularly and keep in a place of honor in my home office, atop a velvet cushion with its name embroidered on it. Please, my Fujitsu friends, find me worthy.

    Pomona, CA

  400. Tracy says:

    Totally would use it for my kids art! And old photos

  401. Katrina says:

    I think the first things I would scan are pre-digital photos so I could easily share them with my siblings – maybe even start a family instagram account similar to the one you have with your heritage photos. Thanks for the chance to win!
    Sandy, UT

  402. Liz Brown says:

    If I won this scanner I would use it to scan in the stacks of photos I have gotten from my parents of their childhoods and mine- absolute treasures!

    I’m from Ridgefield, CT.
    THANKS!!

  403. Stacey says:

    I would use this scanner to help create and complete my 3 kids Project Life Albums. I’ve been watching Becky’s YouTube videos in the morning while I’m working out and I’ve been so inspired to pick my scrap booking back up. I even organized all my kids schools papers and artworks into bins so that I can complete albums using the same system that Becky has been using because I LOVE her process. I’m so excited and talking about it so much even my kids are getting into it! We would also use it as a family because my husband has a side business and has a lot of shipping receipts that clutter my computer desk. They would be scanned regularly!

    Henderson, KY

  404. Rachel Stephens says:

    I would love to have this scanner! I would love to use it for pictures and artwork, but would love a way to document/save my loved ones handwriting. It sounds silly but I love my few cards I saved from years ago with grandparents handwriting. I enjoy those precious connections and want to make them last.

    Fort Wayne, Indiana

  405. Tanya P. says:

  406. Rachel says:

    Hi, Like most people I would be scanning photos and children’s artwork but for me personally, I lost one of my son’s (Jackson) in a car accident 6 & 1/2 years ago and would so love to get his photos and artwork, school work, everything in paper form of his digitized because I’m scared of losing it. This would mean so much to me and my family to be able to do this. We haven’t found anything of quality as this scanner seems to be. Thankyou for the opportunity to be able to do this. Rachel and Family.

  407. Heather Gunn says:

    I am working on albums for my daughter that is graduating this spring. I realized there were a lot of photos that I don’t have multiples of and want to have copies of them before sending the originals off with her. This would be an awesome way to quickly scan a large amount of photos from my pre-digital years.

    Hi from Vero Beach, FL! I love how you turn your recipes into Project Life so my first use would be to scan in my Grandma’s handwritten recipes and create an album with them!

  410. Rachel says:

    Sorry. Im from Qld Australia. The sunshine State.

  411. Kristie Marcotte says:

    I would use it to scan in the kids school work. What a time saver that would be!
    Kristie M. from Puyallup, WA

  412. Gloria says:

    I have made six Project Life albums for my children, grandchildren, sister, and nieces. I have done NOTHING for myself with all my old photos over many years. I would love to win the scanner to be able to scan my photos, plus paperwork that holds so many memories for me. This would be an album that I would leave to my family of all my memories growing up, and when I had my family. I would hope it would be cherished when I am no longer around!!!
    Thank you for the chance. What a great giveaway!!
    I am from Roseville, CA.

    Madison, WI

  415. Donna Harris says:

    I would use the scanner for BOXES of old family photos from the past 80+ years, which I would then use with my Project Life app to create memory albums for my children, nieces and nephews! Thanks for the information! I live in Covington, Georgia!

  416. Jenn Richards says:

    I would use the ScanSnap scanner to go completely paperless throughout my entire home. Scanning photos, children’s artwork, old scrapbooks, documents, bills, receipts..etc… I’ve been looking for a scanner for awhile that would work for all my needs and this scanner seems to be the “all-in-one” scanner! I live in Utah.

  417. Jamie Reber says:

    I’d use it to scan all my photos from before we had digital cameras – both mine as a kid, and when my own kids were babies. I’m in Bellevue, NE!

  418. Pam says:

    I would use it to scan kids papers, papers in 4file cabinets (so I could get rid of them) go paperless and stay paperless.

  419. Traci Smith says:

    I would scan my pre-digital photos for scrapbooking on your app, but I would also use it daily for our two small businesses as well as our personal business.

    Side note: Thanks to Becky for how she runs her business. Quality people you have around you, Becky, and you’re all fun to watch.

    Traci

  420. Erin says:

    I have been dreaming of a scanner like this! :) As so many others have said, I would work on scanning in the family history to better preserve it. I find myself the holder of all the family photos going back several generations, or at least the one doing the bulk of the scanning. This would certainly speed up the process! Thank you from Troutdale, OR.

  421. I live in Wilmington, Delaware and I am currently on a mission to declutter my home. The scanner would make archiving our important documents and family memorabilia quick and easy.

  422. Jennifer Lavender says:

    I’m in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    As much as I would love to jump right in on the scrapbook scanning, there is a pile of EOB’s and other insurance paperwork waiting to be scanned.

  423. Deidre Donovan says:

    I’d use it to scan documents thay we interact with daily so I could throw things away, definitely for kids artwork. I also want to get one for my mom so we can scan in all her old photos she has THOUSANDS and I know it would be faster with a scanner like this. I’d also love to be able to scan all the sheet music I have so I can throw it away (I’m a performer). I have a flat scanner and would have to do it page by page and that is not realistic. Definitely interested. I live in New York city!!!! Which means I have a tiny apartment, I could throw away so much if I had this scanner:-)

  424. Shannon Criado says:

    I have containers upon containers of STUFF that I’ve saved from each of my three kids. My greatest and biggest wish is to get those things organized and preserved. And I want to be liberated from the originals!! When I look at all that I have saved- I am totally overwhelmed! Save me with the scanner, please!

  425. Natalie says:

    Hi, I’m Natalie from Birmingham, AL. I would LOVE to win the Fujitsu scanner! Currently I am working on my high school years scrapbook. I was a memory keeper and future scrapbooker back then, even if I didn’t know it:) I have athletic programs, certificates and all kinds of memorabilia I would love to scan and put into my album without the bulk of including the actual items. Thanks Becky and Kevin for telling us all about the ScanSnap!

  426. Rachel Broederlow says:

    I would use this to scan photos, memorabilia, and everyday stuff such as receipts and any other paperwork that needs to be stored for future reference.

  427. What would I use it for? Why of course anything I’m using in my Project Life albums. I’m trying to get a handle on 5 kids albums from ages 18-31. I’m determined to record at least they’re first 18 years.

  428. Also I should add I live in Connecticut.

  429. Lisa Hernandez says:

    I would use this for scanning my parents’ paperwork. One day in the future, one or both of them will need some help keeping track of ordinary bills and medical records. I have owned a Scansnap since 2008, and together with Hazel software, it changed my filing life completely. I’m in Putnam Valley, NY.

  430. Julie S. says:

    School stuff for sure! I have an elementary school album to catch up on!!

  431. Carolina says:

    I’ve got boxes of my parents pictures that need to get preserved and documented! Would love scanning & putting together PL albums! From NYC!

  432. Carrie Kelleher says:

    I would love, love, love this! I have so many old pics from my family, my mother’s childhood, my husband’s family, etc. But first, I’d use the scanner to scan pics to use in my making my daughter’s 8th grade video for her graduation breakfast! Please! Thank you!

  433. Amy Wimer says:

    I would use the scanner to archive my physical photos and kids “stuff.” But, I would also use it to get the paper monster under control at my house. I am a registered nurse, so I am routinely given educational paperwork and CEU documents. I would love the ability to scan those work related papers to have them readily available on my laptop. And, I have binder after binder of nursing school notes that I reference from time to time. I’d love to have those archived as well. Not to mention what it could do for bills and financial documents. How amazing it would be to be free of physical copies of receipts. I can only imagine!!!!!

  434. Susan Thornton says:

    I have 2 file boxes each of school work and mementos of my four kids. I would love to scan some of these and put them in a Project Life album.
    Arnold, MD

  435. Karen Averill says:

    I would scan 29 years worth of things saved that my 3 kids did, medical receipts and old photos. Thank you for this chance!! 💕

  436. Julie G says:

    I would break out old photo albums to make sure I have everything with a digital copy!
    From Indio, CA

  437. Vicmarie says:

    Since I am the first memory keeper in the family I would love to scan all old photos and start creating Project Life pages in the app to document as many stories as I can. I live in Puerto Rico and scrapbooking is not very popular here. So I’m very proud of being documenting my stories through Project Life. I would use the scanner to make that process easier with the old photos. Thank you!

  438. Lise Malette says:

    I would LOVE this scanner. The question is what wouldn’t I scan. The possibilities are endless!!! My children’s art work, my grandparents and family photos that are not digital and all the “stuff” sitting in a pile ready to be scrapbooked!

    Thanks fir all the Q’s and A’s and for the chance to win. I am from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

  439. Jennifer says:

    I would use this on all household items: receipts, warranties, medical, etc. but what I would be most excited about is scanning all of my kids art work and school papers. Also scanning photos and very old photos from my grandparents.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  440. LeAnna Rau says:

    I have inherited multiple family photos after losing my Mom and grandmother that I would like to scan and return the original picture to the family member. It is daunting having such a large amount of photos to sort and catalog. Maybe a scan snap would make this easier. Thank you for this opportunity and the shared information.

  441. Amber Swift says:

    I have a ton of photos that I want to digitize from my childhood up through my wedding. So those would all start a line on through. Interspersed I would work on miniaturizing my kiddos artwork so I don’t have to keep so much stuff!!

  442. Amanda Houston says:

    I am from Park Hill, Oklahoma and I have wanted one of these scanners since I started following Becky Higgins. I would use it to scan all of my daughter’s pictures and artwork from birth through her high school graduation last year. I am also trying to go paperless in my business so it would be beneficial there too. My birthday is Saturday, April 22 so maybe I’ll get lucky and win this! Thank you for creating Project Life and the app…I absolutely love it!

  443. Laura B. says:

    I would love an easy way to scan all my old family photos and scrap them digitally. I live in Glendora, CA.

  444. Lindsay says:

    I will use it mostly to scan artwork for my daughter’s scrapbook. I’ve been inspired to catch up since you did Porter’s scrapbook!

  445. Shana says:

    First things first…kids art & school papers, I’m about 3 yrs behind. In fact, I purchased a new black poster-board tonight in hopes of catching up this weekend. Hmmmmm, maybe I’lll wait until Monday. 😉

  446. Shana says:

    Oops…forgot..San Diego, CA

  447. Ann Marie says:

    First, THANK YOU for all the follow-up on this topic! When you touched on this the first time I was desperate for more info and you’ve given us additional information at least twice. It’s like you’re reading my mind! I’d use it in the same way you did when showing us how you were getting caught up on Porter’s albums. I now have 2 grown children and I’ve been a scrabooker since 1995 but WAY behind because I’m overwhelmed by the memorabilia and school projects I’ve collected over the years. I’m convinced this will also become a critical component of our home office. I live in both Phoenix and in a small town in Nebraska. Thanks again!

  448. Alex Fahey says:

    Oh man! I would start with all my old photos- both from my family history and my childhood! I live in Marietta, GA.

  449. Kelli B says:

    I have been following along with your Project Photo Rescues and have felt like you were speaking to me. I have numerous totes filled with 6 children’s “mementos” and dream of the day that I can claim to be caught up! I am getting more familiar and comfortable with the Project Life app and having digital scans means I can continue to work toward my goal no matter where I am. Also my mother just informed me that she has boxes and boxes of photos from my grandmother that she would like to share with relatives and on Family Search. A speedy and reliable scanner would be such a blessing in making that happen for her. The possibilities are endless with this scanner!
    Thanks for the continued inspiration and encouragement!

  450. Ina says:

    I would love one of those scanners! I would use it for the tons of old photos I have from my childhood (my dad took tons of photos on film), our memorabilia, and for my own kids artwork.

    From Claremont, CA :)

  451. Monica says:

    Girl….I have so many Rubbermaid bins filled to the rim from back in the day 😂 I’d start there.
    Are you working on a “Tech Rescue with Kevin” giveaway? 😜

  452. Cristy S. says:

    I have followed Becky’s school scanning “catch-up” Project for her own children’s scrapbooks knowing that I too have kept memories stacked and stacked and stacked for years and hoping to scrapbook my kids early Year stories one day.

    I have now watched Becky’s Project Rescue this week with Maria and I am motivated even more to start my own Recue from my own piles and stacks of memories!! The scanner would be a good motivator to start, well, as soon as I win it!! :)

  453. Michelle says:

    Wow! This scanner is a game changer. I would definitely start by scanning boxes full of old family photos that I’ve been lagging on digitizing. I would love to be able to use them in the project life app and to be able to have a backup of those photos. Thanks for all the tips Becky and Kevin! I live in San Jose, CA.

  454. Christine Veldman Miller says:

    This is amazing! I would scan my husband’s grandmothers photo album from her early days that I have been promising to get back to my sister in law for years!

  455. Lara Read says:

    I’d scan old photos for family history. And kids projects that really need purging.

  456. Christine Veldman Miller says:

    Oh, and I live in Sacramento , Ca!

  457. Jami Harwood says:

    I would use this to help me catch up on my daughter’s scrapbooks and now my grandchildren as well. Way behind. Since my friends convinced me to take up quilting about 4 yrs ago, my scrapbooking has kinda been in the back burner. And I’ve also inherited all my parents photos since my mom passed away 6 yrs ago. I need a LOT of help!

  458. Teresa K says:

    This scanner sounds amazing! We currently do not own a scanner, but I have been secretly wanting one since we’ve moved 10 years ago and flat bed one is gone. It would be super convenient for scanning receipts so that there’d be way less clutter in my desk drawer. Also I would use to scan greeting cards that I feel that are too pretty to get rid of! (From Edmonton, Canada)

  459. Erin Eichelberger says:

    I live in Peoria, AZ! I would use this scanner for PL stuff for sure! Kids artwork and school work, and old pictures.

  460. Nancy says:

    Thank you for covering this topic. I have been interested in this scanner for awhile. I have many crates of kids’ papers that need to be dealt with, and I believe the scanner will be the answer. I have a room completely filled with photos and memorabilia that my husband and I have inherited from parents, grandparents, and other family members who are no longer with us which is very overwhelming, but I think this scanner could be a step in right direction toward addressing. I also would like to use the scanner to archive financial paperwork as well. I live in Cypress, TX.

  461. Carolyn K says:

    I would scan my children’s art work and school work for scrapbooking the Becky Higgins way!

  462. Britney says:

    I would love to use this to catch up on my daughters school art and papers. I also would love to use this for my genealogy work. I have pictures of my great grandparents and their parents that I would love to scan in to ancestry and family search. I live in Utah. We love doing genealogy work. :)

  463. Sara says:

    I would start with my sons medical records (hospital has them in digital form but I only get a paper copy), then my grandma’s family history sheets from way back when. I would love to scan all my kids school stuff and photos from my childhood that there are only one copy of (and several people who want it.) This machine looks like such a time saver!
    Sandy, UT

  464. Ruth says:

    I would love to win this scanner! My dad has a bunch of photos from Vietnam that I would love to get scanned and preserve!

  465. Juanita says:

    Oh I have been itching to get my hands on this scanner!!! Years ago, I organized the 5 kids in my family’s loose photos from all the stacks of printed photos in boxes. Now I would love to use this amazing little Jem to digitize them all for ease of sharing in our own fancy history. I now have 2 daughters of my own that I need to scan so many amazing little pieces of their lives!!! I’m in Utah.
    With Love, Juanita

  466. Alexis says:

    I love in Wimborne, Dorset in England

  469. Debbie Lee says:

    I would first use it to scan school papers as I attempt to make headway on my kids’ books, but I love the idea of scanning banking statements and such. I would also love to scan some photos.

  470. Maureen Moulder Lindenau says:

    Our daughter is graduating soon and we have boxes full of schoolstuff from her and her brother. I would like to make photobooks for her (and her brother too) with pictures and schoolart per schoolyear.

    Greetings from Zwaag, The Netherlands

  472. I would use it to scan all of my children’s artwork that are presently in boxes, and also scan all of my old photos from back in the day when we used film/negatives! It would be a dream come true! !

  474. Angela E says:

    I honestly don’t know what I’d scan first. I have a massive pile of kids artwork waiting to be preserved in digital form. But I’ve also been toying with going paperless with my file system. What a great giveaway!

  475. Shaton wheeler says:

    I would use it to scan family photos from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. We are a military family currently living in Japan and I would love to scan photos when we go home next. Eventually I’d love to make a family tree book to pass on to my children.
    I would also use it to scan my kiddos artwork and my husbands awards.

  476. Holly F says:

    I NEED this to get a handle on all my kids school stuff and artwork. Also trying to reduce all the documents and receipts we’ve been holding on to.

  477. Angela Pratt says:

    I would use this scanner to START my kids school albums! My 34 and 26 and yes 16. Yes I’m a lot behind. Also need to get motivated to get scanning to get some grands albums started too! And all of our family heirloom photos I have and have sat on for four years that need to be scanned and shared with by sibs! This might be the awesome kick I need to get going! And reading my post I need to get busy 😂

    Memphis, TN

  478. Lisa says:

    Wow – I would love to win this scanner 😀 I am in Perth, Australia – is the competition open internationally? I am drowning in photos, memorabilia and paper. I am an English teacher so I am forever ripping things out of newspapers and magazines to use with my classes and then I am never able to find them again – so I would use the scanner to help organise my life and free up some time to be creative and focus on my PL albums 😀

  479. Kristen Berns says:

    I have 50 years and 7 kids (ages 26 -8) worth of boxes of photos and memorabilia to scan in. I started making each kid their own memory books plus a family book for my husband and I to keep and I am greatly behind. I would love to try to go digital so I could make 1 per year and just make 8 copies to keep the family linked especially now that we are adding grandkids. It would be great for all the kids to have this link to each other. I am also working on getting my parents memories recorded before we lose those. This would be awesome in accomplishing these monumental tasks! Dubuque, IA

  480. Cathy Trent says:

    I have my child hood that is kept in various households and I would love to be able to put all of that into one place so my daughter will know a little more about me in pictures. I would also love to “file” my years of financial records that I keep, because I am crazy like that. 🙃

  481. Michele says:

    Thank you for this giveaway.. I would use it scan all of my kids’ artworks of past two years.. I am slowly working on kids’ school album. then next i would scan older photos and memorabilia that my mom have currently to start a heritage album.

    Looking forward to using the scanner to get all those school projects scanned in and in albums!

  486. Tina Burg says:

    I have truly been inspired about all of the videos and posts on getting caught up on your child’s scrapbooks. I have a daughter who is a junior in high school and really want to get her books caught up before next year. I have been wanting to start a specific school album documenting just school activities from preschool to graduation. I have everything organized and saved but just need to go through the process of scanning it and weeding it down. This scanner would be a huge help with all of that. I also have been working on digitizing photos for some projects so being able to scan photos quickly would be awesome! Thanks for all of your inspiration!

  487. Teri says:

    I would scan my predigital pics of my kids so I could use the PL app to scrap them and scan school stuff. I’d like to finish the school albums before they graduate from college and I am running out of time!

    I would use this to scan all our pictures and memorabilia from past (and future!) Disney trips.

  490. Shawna Zervos says:

    Wow! I am inspired to catch hip on my daughters’ scrapbooks and make school albums for my girls age 14 and 8. Pertinate at the moment though, I think this is exactly what I need to finish my National Board teaching certification. So many items which need to be scanned for submission. Thank you so much for your time, knowledge, and inspiration.
    I’m from beautiful West Virginia.

  491. Michella Thompson says:

  494. Peggy Neiman says:

    I am from Auburn, Nebraska.
    I would use the scanner to scan my kids art projects I have saved from years ago and those photos I still have prints on before everything went digital. Also would use to scan photos from childhood and family history photos from my family and my husband’s family.

    Love your Project Life everything!

    I am a high school science teacher moving from textbooks to iPads. I would love to be able to take old files, diagrams, student work, etc. and very quickly be able to digitize. I would also digitize receipts, old photographs, tax papers, and so much more to be able to have less paper clutter in my life. Been fascinated with this scanner ever since I saw it in a photograph that Becky took of her office. I love desk organization pictures and I noticed the odd shaped device. You were asked by many people and then you shared it was your scanner. I have read and watched all your posts about the scanner.

  510. Betcei says:

    Just helped my siblings clean my mother’s house to sell, I would use this scanner to scan all of our historical photos and papers to make copies for everyone in the family. I would stay with a handwritten cookbook by out grandparents! These recipes bring back all kind of memories!

    I would love to have this Fujitsu scanner!!! It sounds awesome and would save so much time! I would use it to scan old family photos (have several big tubs from my childhood that I would love to have digital copies of for my parents, my siblings and myself, and then help my mom finally put them into albums) and I would use it to scan my kids’ artwork and school papers. I think it would also be great for scanning keepsakes from our vacations. Thanks, Becky & Kevin for this very helpful post!!!

  520. Janet says:

    I have inherited literally 1000’s of my Dads , negatives. ( some never printed) , old photos, slides from before 1950 and onwards to early 2000 , many of them of me as a child I am 63 yrs . Dad was an avid phototorapher and now has Alzheimer’s and we lost Mum 4 years ago so as the family historian it lies on my shoulders to fpdo something with these shots There are baby shots, family shots holidays etc etc . I have them all catalogued as much as I can but to have them scanned to make discs for my family members would be awesome. As I am not getting any younger I need to get into this as quickly as possible and it sounds like this scanner would be a really great way of doing just that. It sounds like an amazing tool to help me .! I would love to hear I was a winner as it would take a load off my mind to be able to record our family’s history before something happens to me and they are lost in boxes ! ❤️

  521. Bev says:

    I’ve been looking for a scanner for a while now. I need help managing the paper monster and to help with scrapbooking.

  522. Jennifer Garbett says:

    We are moving and I’m DYING to go paperless!! But it’s so overwhelming to me. Thank you for this post! If I win I want to work on paperless filing and I want to get rid of the several BINS of photos I haven’t opened for years and years but I keep moving and storing because I can’t get rid of them. I want to work through your project photo rescue ideas to get control of these things.

  523. You are an answer to prayers! I am overwhelmed with all I need to do preserve memories for my family and to get rid of the paper monster that has taken over my house. After seeing your son’s book with the different protective sleeve options and how you have scanned old art projects and papers for it, I feel like the solution has been given to me. This is because of you! Thank you! ….. I so need to get one of these scanners to get me started!
    (I live in Utah.)

  524. Paula says:

    After 29 years of marriage and family plus 8 moves, I could probably keep this scanner going for a year nonstop to work through all the filing cabinet drawers, file boxes, and boxes that papers got shoved into over the years. Not to mention my “receipt drawer ” and boxes of old pre-digital photos. Thanks for all the advice & details!

    With seven kids (college-aged through kindergarten), I have a lot of artwork and awards to scan. I’ll do it eventually…but the ScanSnap would make it FUN and FAST. Getting rid of all the years of paper clutter wouldn’t be bad either! Thanks for the informative post.

  528. Rebecca Cox says:

    My mom and I have had our eye on this scanner for awhile. I kept telling her about it at your recommendation. My mom is in the process of a move and every time I think there can’t be anymore pictures, we find another box. I would use it to get through all of our boxes of photos.

  529. Kassie says:

    I have boxes of school/church papers from each of my 9 kids that I’ve been storing for years, with the intention to someday put books together for them. Becky’s latest videos on how she has done her kids books is just the inspiration I needed to know how to do that. Having a speedy scanner would sure help in that process!

  530. Felicia says:

    This is so awesome! My husband and I have a small business and this will be just perfect! Thanks for the chance to win!

  531. Regina Maginnis says:

    I would use this to catch up on all my scrapbooks – for pictures, artwork, theatre stuff, etc. It’s been years since I’ve been able to work on scrapbooks! getting all that stuff scanned and the lots of paper gone would be amazing!

  532. Rachel Resler says:

    I have 19 years of kid/family memorabilia I would scan first. Then I would start getting our files digitized so we would be paperless. It’s unimaginable that it could happen, but you never know!
    Thanks for all the great information in this post, Kevin and Becky! I live and scrap in the ‘burbs of Minneapolis, MN.

  533. Jennifer Grimsley says:

    Hello from Gig Harbor, Washington! I currently have a flatbed scanner that is wonderful with color correction and slide scanning; however, flatbed is tediuous…lift lid, align object, lower lid, scan, repeat. This would be a WONDERFUL tool to have for the boxes of photos and artwork of four kids and eighteen years of marriage. Not to mention, I have been wanting to sit down with my grandfather and scan in their family photos and create a legacy book, and this would make it so much faster!!!

  534. Nancy C says:

    My pre-digital photos are neatly organized, but they are still waiting to be digitalized! Gotta get going on that project! Thanks for all the great information.

  535. Krista E. says:

    I would scan all my kids’ artwork that I’ve saved over the years.. Thanks for being so generous with all of your knowledge.

  536. JNBarros says:

    Los Angeles, CA scrapbooker here. I would use this to scan all my old photos, my son’s school artwork, receipts and just about anything that scans.

    I would love to collect old photos from the family and create a book with them. Then everyone can have a copy if all the old family photos!

  537. Kimberly O. says:

    I bought a ScanSnap several years ago for the office I was working at. Amazing! I was able to scan in at least 40 banker’s boxes worth of documents. My boss was one of those “can’t throw anything away” kind of people. Well, she was also one of those folks who, while she did use an external drive, didn’t make backups of anything. She just saved stuff to that drive. And, of course, she knocked it over one day and *poof*. I sure miss that ScanSnap, but not the job. :)

  538. Heidi C says:

    It would be a game changer for me when it comes to PL and getting caught up! i would be using to get my son’s school/art work scanned and thrown away! :) I am from Florida

  539. Sierra Heath says:

    The first thing I would scan is my childhood photos and artwork so I could make an album. It has been a daunting task to do this album.

    After my mom passed away and three months later my 20- year old daughter passed away -I inherited all my family’s photos and memorabilia plus I have 20 years of school and life memories from my daughter that are now more precious than gold. The scanner would be a game-changer for the monumental …and emotional job ahead of me.

  545. Amy N says:

    I would love a great scanner like this! I would use it to scan stacks of old printed photos so I could scrapbook them in the PL app.

  546. Amy says:

    I would use it to scan art projects and papers from school. Go through old albums and scan them. Just about anything I can find that needs to be scanned I would scan. I have been wanting one of these for a long time.

  547. Laura Wright says:

    I would first use it to move towards a paperless filing system. Paperwork is taking over my desk and the clutter is stressful! I would then begin working on my daughter’s school album. She is in Kindergarten this year. It would be such a blessing.

    Laura from Atlanta, GA

  548. Kathleen Nelson says:

    I would use it for my kids’ artwork first, then to try to go paperless. I’ve had my eye on this since I first “heard” you talk about it. I’d love to have one!

  556. Janet Potsch says:

    I have inherited literally 1000’s of my Dads , negatives. ( some never printed) , old photos, slides from before 1950 and onwards to early 2000 , many of them of me as a child I am 63 yrs . Dad was an avid phototorapher and now has Alzheimer’s and we lost Mum 4 years ago so as the family historian it lies on my shoulders to fpdo something with these shots There are baby shots, family shots holidays etc etc . I have them all catalogued as much as I can but to have them scanned to make discs for my family members would be awesome. As I am not getting any younger I need to get into this as quickly as possible and it sounds like this scanner would be a really great way of doing just that. It sounds like an amazing tool to help me .! I would love to hear I was a winner as it would take a load off my mind to be able to record our family’s history before something happens to me and they are lost in boxes ! ❤️

  557. Sadika O'Quinn says:

    Wow! What a decision! I would scan all the old photos of my parents when they were kids and the photos of their parents (some stemming from the early 1900s) because I want to start researching our family history.
    Aiken, SC

  558. Michelle Mauk says:

    I’ve recently decided to switch from physical to digital scrapping with the Project Life app after being a PL hoarder and not getting anything actually done! I have almost 20 years of kid “stuff” (photos from before digital, drawings, certificates, etc) that would make this transition a dream!! This scanner is otherwise waay put of my budget.

    I live in Akron, Ohio and met you at a scrapbook event when you lived in Cleveland.

    Thanks!
    Michelle

  559. Sharon Brooks says:

  560. Beth Hudak says:

    Hello from NE Ohio!
    Having a scanner would be a blessing to be given. I would use it to scan our older family members photos and then take it over to my siblings and cousins homes. Getting everyone to get these family memories preserved gets more important as I get older. Seeing how fast photos can be scanned makes this so doable. Blessings to all.

  561. Lida M says:

    I live in beautiful Boise, ID! 😊

  565. Susan kopp says:

    I have 2 large rubbermaid tubs of heritage photos that both sides of my family have gifted me with. While I love the treasure trove of photos I would love to have scanned all of them but I am embarrassed to say that in the 10 years I have had them the task seemed to daunting. This would be so awesome. Scanning grandkids art works would be a gift I could give to their moms as I could turn all of it into hardbound books, much easier to store!!

  566. Heather V says:

    I have an heirloom album of photos from my grandmother that I need to scan. That would be the first project I would tackle!

  570. Lindsay says:

    My son lives in another state during the school year and I have been looking into scanners for him recently– he’s 7 and he tries to show me his school work on Skype, but I can’t make sense of it, but I very much want to see what he’s been up to!

  573. ErinL says:

    I am currently organizing my moms & grandmas vast picture and memorabilia collection. I am hoping to start scanning everything to turn it into digital copies and eventually Project Life pages through the app. I have had my eyes on the Fujitsu scanner for quite a while but wanted to get everything organized before I purchase and start scanning. After hearing Kari’s story about her pictures I now feel a sense of urgency to just get it all done -organized or not! Thanks for the motivation!!

    Edgewood, WA.

  574. Jill M says:

    Would TOTALLY use it for my 2 kids massive piles of art/paperwork. I have all the PL stuff but I am stuck on starting the scanning vs taking a photo process, so everything sits in boxes! Would also love to tackle mine and hubs childhood photos (both from divorced & remarried families) where all the pics are scattered between multiple family members.
    ❤️ from Newcastle, WA

  575. Teresa Stout says:

    I would totally use this to catch up on my three kids’ albums (my 7 yr old haven’t even been born in scrapbook years!) and to tame the paperwork that seems to pile up!!
    – buried in paper & so behind in Oklahoma!

I am looking at all the boxes of memorabilia I have saved through the years on all the kids and would love to scan all the “keepers”. I am overwhelmed with all of this, and a scanner sure would help. I would also scan in all of the momentos from my late father who was a Vietnam veteran. He died 8 years ago of a sudden brain aneurysm. I would love for all of our children to have a copy of a book about him with all of his military/life stuff scanned and made into a book with photos!

  587. Kathy Weiland says:

    This scanner sounds great & would simplify my life! I would first use it on my photos of my kids & then start using it on documents too. Woodstock, IL

  588. Brianna H says:

    I would use it to scan photos and return the originals back to family. Once they are scanned I would be able to start creating scrapbooks of my childhood. I use the PL app because it is so easy and I feel like all thumbs when I try to paper scrap. Being able to have all of my pictures digitally would be amazing. Bourbonnais, IL

  589. Diane Bassette says:

    Definitely would start with all my important documents followed by precious pictures… Agawam, MA

  592. Michelle Clark says:

    Hi Becky and Kevin!
    I would love to use this scanner to be able to scan all of our printed photos that did not come from a digital source. I have many boxes of prints that I would feel so much better about if there were a backup digital copy. About fifteen years ago, my computer hard drive died, and we had not properly backed it up, and we lost TWO YEARS of photos. I’m still devastated over this. Now, I have multiple copies of all things digital, but am still behind in copying the printed pictures because the flatbed scanner is so time consuming!
    I live in Windham Maine.

    Hi, this would be the answer to my prayers! The first thing I would scan would be photos from my son’s early childhood, and schoolwork/mementos. He’s graduating high school next month, and I’m using the project life app to try to document his school years.
    I’m from Madison, AL. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  595. Kari says:

    Wow, what a great giveaway! While I SHOULD prioritize and first use this to get organized as a small business owner….I’d be very tempted to just dive in and scan boxes of kids’ school papers, pictures and artwork. It’s a daunting task that’s been put on hold for far too long as I don’t know where to start. Your last photo rescue project gives me a glimmer of hope though!

  596. Allie Campbell says:

    Hi, from Lewes, Delaware!
    My husband and I have been blessed with two amazing children who have, in recent years, made us official empty-nesters. In my spare time now, you can find me in my craft room working to preserve all their childhood photos/memorabilia I’ve been collecting for 28 years! Project Life has streamlined this process for me in a huge way, and this amazing scanner would be a huge help for all their school memorabilia… just to start! :-)

  597. MaryAnn Perry says:

    I am from Gilbert, AZ. I would use it to scan all of my girls artwork and papers from school. They are in third and second grade and I have kept all of their art work and important papers since they started preschool 8 years ago! I want to get current with their school and child scrapbooks. I would also use it for my history scrapbook. I’ve been working on a project with my third grader that traces our ancestors back to when the immigrated to America shortly after the civil war. Using the scanner is something easy that we could do together as a family project! Having this scanner would be an incredible addition to our memory keeping process!

  598. Diane says:

    I would love to have this scanner, my only child is 25 and I have LOTS of things to scan and to get organized! And she is getting married soon! I need a big push to get started/continue on from my semi attempt years ago. I have tons of project life physical stuff but need a push in the organized direction!!!

  599. Kerri Michels says:

    Hello from Grand Rapids, MI! What a great giveaway! I would LOVE to be able to preserve my children’s artwork, family history and memorabilia. My father was in the war and would love to take the time to scan in all of his old photos from when he served.

Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  600. Penny says:

    My father just gave me hundreds of family history photos, documents and newspaper clippings. Enough to fill my SUV with barely enough room for my child to squeeze into the car. I would love to get them all scanned and preserved quickly. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Clay, NY

  601. Debbie Smith says:

    This is awesome. I have so many old photos of my family that I want to scrap but not the originals. All of my family is gone now on both sides and I seem to be the designated person. I am 61 now and having this would make it so much easier on me. I’m not the that techs but this I could handle.

  602. Dianne says:

    I have inherited all the family photos, all of our history, and have been overwhelmed by how to manage it! This looks like the answer, thanks for all the info! I live in St Petersburg, Florida

  603. Martha Hernandez says:

    I’ve been wanting to scan old photos of my parents to create a scrapbook for my daughter an nieces.

Need to purchase a scanner and this one is beyond my budget for this project. Sending much appreciation from Brainerd, MN

  604. Corinna says:

    I have so many photos that I rescued from my grandparents and my parents that I would love to be able to share with other family members. It is so overwhelming; I would be so grateful for anything that could make it easier. I live in Colorado.

  605. Marsha says:

    I need to scan artwork, memorabilia, photos …. I’ve got 20 years of memory keeping in baskets, bins and boxes… this would be a lifesaver. Oh, and I’d LOVE to use it for the seemingly daily LIFE stuff:
    School district residency proof – send scanned documents;
    Park district swim team registration – send scanned documents;
    Overnight camp – send scanned documents;
    It seems I’m forever needing to scan documents and I have no convenient way to do this now!

    Thank you for this fantastic recommendation and the awesome giveaway opportunity!

  606. Melissa DL says:

    For daily stuff, will scan my receipts. For projects, definitely my kids’ school projects that come every day and can be overwhelming! Thank you for the opportunity to win this cool tool!

  607. Stephanie Olsen says:

    I have PILES of pictures and MANY albums (pre digital camera) and would LOVE to be able to scan them in quickly to make them digital and then create photobooks easily. I would also scan kids school items to include in their albums. This sounds like an amazing scanner! Thanks for the chance to win it! Stephanie Olsen-Manhattan, KS

  608. Sue says:

    My parents moved from their 40 year home in Maryland to Utah. I currently live in northeast PA – a little town where my parents met and marrried. She left me with “the boxes”…the family history boxes – full of photos and memorabilia from my ancestors on both sides. I am now the keeper of the boxes…24 in all. The photos need to be scanned and posted on familysearch or in Chatbooks or in emails to family. This scanning tool would certainly help me accomplish this daunting task!
    Thanks for all you do to encourage us to cultivate a good life and record it!

  611. Laurie M. says:

    I would use this scanner to go through and scan/organize/archive/PL the boxes of photos my mom inherited from her parents. How wonderful it would be to share them all with family. I would also use it to scan and save the abundance of school work and artwork that my 4, 7 and 9 year olds bring home from school.

    I’m in Ontario, Canada.

  612. Breon Randon says:

    Hmm I honestly would probably use it for work first. I have too many times where I need to work on expenses and my flatbed is tough to navigate :) thanks for the chance.

  613. BettyLou says:

    I’d scan the several hundred typed document I just found in my mother-in-laws attic. It’s a local history written by a neighbor in the 1970s with stories and photos from 1908. The feeder on my flatbed scanner won’t take the thin typewriter paper.

  614. Rachel C says:

    I would use it to scan all my paperwork and make my home office area paper free.
    Rachel
    Iowa

  615. Antonia K says:

    This is the first I’ve heard of this scanner and I appreciate the detailed explaination of it’s uses. I’m in the market for a scanner to replace a flatbed and am happy to learn this particular scanner would address pretty much all my needs —scanning memorabilia and old photos for scrapbooking, organizing and reducing household paperwork, and organizing all the paperwork for my freelance design work. The ability to correct crooked scans along with the iOS functionality and the ability to upload directly to Dropbox are particularly intriguing to me. Thank you for this informational post and for hosting such a great giveaway!

  616. Debbie K says:

    I would use the scanner to catch up on my kids albums. My youngest will be graduating from high school in June and I would love to finish her albums before she goes off to college. Thanks for this offer and a chance to win!
    Debbie

  617. Hally Nguyen says:

    I would use it to scan all of my old, pre-digital family pictures. I have attempted to do this with my phone and an app that straightens photos. It has been a very discouraging process, since it is so time-consuming. I’ve only been able to get through a small chunk of it. This machine would let me do it all in an hour! Moreover, I would use it to scan receipts and documents because I love to keep back ups of anything important. Of course, I would love to share it with my friend who has been needing a machine like this, too!

    I’m located in Phoenix, AZ.

  618. BKS says:

    I would be using the scanner to scan all my kids school papers so I could use them in PL!

  620. Kristin Spearman says:

    Hello from Highlands Ranch, Colorado!
    I have been attempting to order this scanner at a price I can afford for a month now. I have ordered 4 different times and each time the order has been cancelled.:( I am so inspired by everything you do in scrapbooking and have been a fan since your early days with Creating Keepsakes magazine. I am a 2nd grade teacher that has countless ways to use this scannner. I also have twin boys that I have albums to catch up on in the next 2 years (before graduation). I am envisioning a summer of scanning and getting caught up! Thank you so much for your consideration.

  621. Kaneka says:

    Oh my, this scanner sounds amazing. I would love to scan old family photos.

  622. Kristen Clark says:

    First I would scan in my wedding pictures (before the days of digital cameras!) and then start on our old family history photos…scan kids artwork & school papers…..my moms shoeboxes of photos….I’ll give the scanner quite a workout!!
    Thank you for the chance to win! :-)

  623. Kim says:

    This sounds absolutely A. Ma. Zing!!! My husband and I currently use a scanner, but it it one piece of paper at a time. This multi page, document feeder, allowing multiple sizes… WHAT??!! would be a game changer! We would scan home business documents, receipts, invoices, and all the kid’s stuff. I have a 17 year-old senior, who’s scrapbook is caught up to when he was 18 months! I have a 14 year-old daughter, who’s scrapbook has her ultrasound picture, and an 8 year-old, that I haven’t scrapped anything! Now, I have lots of STUFF, I just haven’t scrapped it! #FAIL! This would be AWESOME! Thanks for all the info, Kevin, and interrupting Becky! :) I live in Lehi, UT

  627. Susanne Staal says:

    I am a hybrid scrapper, and after the latest cyclone that we had here in queensland australia i saw so much destruction and damage, i would love to be able to scan all my scrapbook and project life pages and save them on a harddrive, in the event that something should happened to my albums, at least i would still have a copy of them.

  628. Ashleyh says:

    Would be a great took to help with the stacks of kids “treasures”!

  629. Bernadette says:

  630. Mandy Koch says:

    This would be an awesome item to win! I would definitely use it to scan the many years worth of greeting cards that I’ve been saving. Then the kids artwork/school stuff. Then I’d share with my best friend who is my Project Life buddy. 😊 I’m from Mesa, Arizona 🌵☉🌺

    I would love to use this to scan photos and artwork my 16 month old has created since starting preschool. After scanning, they’d be great to add to his project life baby book. It would also be awesome to use to scan photos of my sister growing up for her upcoming wedding :) I live in Knoxville, Tennessee!

  635. Karen S says:

    I am at the same place you are – staring down a rising 9th grader and wondering where time went! I have a few short years to catch up on her album. That scanner would be such a help in reducing the bins and piles of stuff I have collected through the years.

    Charlotte, NC

  636. Emily says:

    I would use the scanner to scan all artwork, school work from my kids to get caught up in their albums! Thanks for all that you do!!

  637. Ashleyh says:

    Would be great to help with the stacks of kids “treasures”! Trophy Club, Texas

  638. Samantha says:

    Starting my own business helping others organize their photos! This would help in so many ways! St. Marys, WV

  639. Pamela says:

    I love this scansnap and would love one to scan the oodles and oodles of family photots.
    i am from montreal, quebec, canada. :)

  640. My oldest son (age 22) was born waaaaay before digital cameras! I am currently in the process of scanning all his old baby pictures for an online backup, but it is taking fooooorrrreeeevvvveeeerrrr! I have a flatbed scanner, and it was set-up to send the photos to my husband’s computer (before I got my own). So, I have to share screen time with him – which is hard because he works from home. I need one of these nifty little things for myself! :) I live in Colorado Springs, CO.
    Thanks!

  641. Michelle L says:

    This sounds fantastic. I have boxes filled with pictures that need to be scanned. Not to mention kids’ artwork. My mom also has so many photos that I’d love to scan, but she won’t let them leave her house (sometimes my brothers and I sneak them out 😊). This scanner would be a game changer!

  642. Renee says:

    I really want to get caught up on old pictures so I can use them in the app!!

  643. Michelle L says:

    Oops! I’m from Chicago.

  644. Clisty Borzoni says:

    First thing I’d scan would have to be something silly. Like a candy bar wrapper to send to my nutrition doctor. After that, I’d swoop up my kids and take them to my parents so we could scan their pictures, eat and listen to them. They’d love me forever for that :)

  645. Lisa Nesbitt says:

    I would love a new scanner to catch up on all of my kids school papers.
    Spring Valley, MN

  646. Kari says:

    I would love to be able to use it for my own “Photo Rescue” and catching up! It seems so overwhelming but this scanner would definitely ease the process!!

  647. Callie says:

    I live in Providence Utah and I would love this scanner to scan in all of my Grandmother’s pictures and documents. Our family ended up with a huge pile of them when she passed away and I’ve been trying to digitize everything so it’s easy to share with the rest of the family!

  648. Nicole Condict says:

    Hello from Northern Indiana! I’ve got kiddo art and school stuff to sort through and this would be so helpful. Also, I’d work on family history things.

  649. Libby says:

    I live in Minneapolis and I make t-shirts for my daughter’s class using individual self-portraits which I scan and turn into a “Brady Bunch” type shirt design. With a flatbed scanner, it takes forever to scan in 32 self-portraits (I have also started helping some other classes and am now scanning in over 200!). The scansnap would make this process a breeze! But that’s just what I would do first….

  650. jodi manzanares says:

    A couple years back my darling destructive 4 year old dropped my hard drive and I lost 13 years of memories…i sent it to multiple companies to try save my photos but the damage was too extensive….it was a hard loss…since then I have been trying to recreate my children’s childhood and our memories from the photos others have taken….it has been a long and exhaustive process!!! The scanner would be great to make quick copies and be able to have them on my computer in a breeze instead of the complicated way i have been doing it!! Needless to say I have two hard drives now 😁 that these scanned images will be saved to!

  651. I live in Baker City, Oregon where the closest shopping of any good things is over an hour away. So if I went to look to buy this, odds are, I would never be able to, so winning one would be extra sweet! Thanks for a chance to win! (If I am not too late in entering!)

  652. Clisty Borzoni says:

    Edit: I can’t follow directions. I’m in Utah.

  654. Yvette says:

    We have EIGHT kids living at home – I love anything that makes my life quicker and more importantly easier. I would start with my 18 yo pics which are nicely stored but as we do graduation stuff I realize how far we have come since he was born.

    Dunkirk ind

  656. Mirien says:

    So many possibilities! I’d love to scan years of artwork and memorabilia–I have 6 kids, ages 8-23, and I am so overwhelmed with boxes of stuff. And then boring stuff, like receipts for tax purposes, etc. Thanks for all the great information you are giving us. One of these days I will dive in!

  657. Kelley H. says:

    I have a pile of heritage photos and papers that I’ve been meaning to duplicate for my brother. However, life and money have prevented this from happening. I would love to be able to get this going!
    Thanks for the information as always!

  658. Amanda Powell says:

    I would use it to tackle the piles of paper around the house! I’ve been pretty good about snapping photos of the kids artwork for the last few years, but this would definitely help get completely caught up!! Thanks for the chance to win! -Amanda
    Mapleton,IL

  659. Krista Faulkner says:

    This is great! Thanks for all the info! I have do many stacks of paper! I would love to use this to go paperless as well! First up, kids stuff, I have quite a few bins of art and school work. Then, all the other less fun stuff (mostly medical papers for J).

    Fargo ND

    My wife NEEDS this! Trying to keep up with kid’s projects as well as trying to record as much of family history and photos as she can. Not to mention being an awesome wife and mom!

  661. Arlene says:

    Southern CA

    I would first use to scan my boys artwork… I’ve got enough but not too much. They’re in Jr High now. I scrap almost everyday since I found your app last year. I’m sure my husband would find things to scan too. He’s an organization dynamo! 😉

  662. Robyn Schlichter says:

    I would use it to scan my daughter’s artwork. I’m trying to catch-up on the first 5 yesterday before she starts kindergarten.

    The first thing I would do is scan the heirloom family photos and documents that we have and be able to share a quality copy of them with our family.
    Minot, ND

  664. Melody Williamson says:

    I’m from queen creek, AZ but I’m currently vacationing in California (skipping those triple digits as long as possible!)

    I’ve been wanting to scan my childhood photos and my parents old photos for a while now but it’s kind of pricey!!!! I’d love to be able to do it myself!!!

  665. Patty says:

    I would use the scanner to post all of my seven year old son’s beautiful and priceless artwork.
    I live in Tehachapi, California.

  666. Kathy Strin says:

    I would love to begin scanning the boxes of artwork from when my children (twins) went to daycare. They are now 10. Being able to scan will allow me to let go of a lot and create some much needed space in our small home. Thank you for the opportunity!!

  667. Jess Aldrich says:

    We live in Dracut, Massachusetts and my mother has 40 years worth of memories just sitting in her hope chest begging to be scrapbooked. I’ve been eyeing the ScanSnap for a while because it’s ideal to scan all those memories onto my computer and phone.

  668. Susan Smith says:

    I would use it to scan all the artwork, school documents etc that I have stored in boxes for a few decades. Plus, all the old photos that I have inherited. I am in the metro Vancouver area.

  669. Shirley K says:

    I would love to catch up on scanning a stack of old family photos. It’s been slow going with a flatbed scanner!

  670. Marci says:

    What would I use this scanner for first? I would have to have a scanner party with girlfriends, right!? Any excuse for a girls night! But really, I would get all my grandparents photos scanned in so we could use them for their upcoming surprise joint 83rd birthday party! After that the possibilities are endless… kids school and artwork albums, clear a paper clutter at the house, famil history and so much more!!

    I’m in Fort Worth, TX!

  671. Laura Davis says:

    OH MY GOSH… could so use this, I have saved my sons school work, they are now 36 & 25 YIKES, this way I could print photos to save those precious papers

    Laura Davis
    Grants Pass OR

  672. Megan Davis says:

    Oh my goodness, this looks like a GREAT option. I would use it to scan my 3 GIANT boxes of my parent’s pictures, as well as my grandparents pictures. Currently (as in…. 3 years ago?) I was using our flatbed scanner. I got so frustrated with how much time it took, that I became overwhelmed and just stopped. This would be amazing!

  673. Shana Bowen says:

    I have been trying to back up old photos as well as my mom’s old photos. The current process is slow and tedious. This sounds like it would be much easier and comes recommended by a friend.

    Whoops…. I’m from Kaysville Utah :)

  675. Wendy Congiardo says:

  676. Rhonda Moore says:

    I would like to archive the stacks and stacks of newspaper articles that I’ve collected over the years throughout my sons baseball team. Saving them, and then using them in PL layout would be a great gift for him and his best coach .. his dad!

  677. Tiffany says:

    This is now on my wishlist! We are moving soon and have tons and tons of medical records and court documents that I would love to not have to pack and move. I’ve also always wanted to make copies of all of my mom’s pictures so we each have copies of them. Then of course there is scrapbooking and our kids art projects! Oh and we are in arizona!

  678. Theresa says:

    I would use it to scan all of the old family pictured at my parent’s house so I can start a book for a Christmas gift for my parents. And then I would get on my kid’s school papers and projects! Thank you for this opportunity!

    Alexandria, MN

  679. Amy Lewis says:

    This scanner sounds amazing! The first thing I would want to scan is church talks my dad wrote. He passed away a year and ago half ago and there are binders full of the talks he gave. He saved them all! I would love to put them all in a book for my brothers and sisters. I think it would be a great keepsake for all of us! And I need to get started on my 5 kids scrapbooks so this scanner would definitely help with all the artwork and papers we’ve saved! I’m from Cedar Park Texas

  681. Suzanne Daniels says:

    Oh what I would give to win this :) I currently live in Georgia. Myself and two of my children are travelling home (Ireland) in June. It is a part graduation present to my son who graduates High School in May and also part family business. My mom just got diagnosed with Alzheimers, early stages thankfully. My daughter has been watching Who do You Think You Are and is wanting to do a family tree. I told her that there are tons of pictures at my mom’s and we need to organise them when we are over there and probably bring them back to the States with us when we return. This way we can send all my family members copies of all the pictures. I remember the albums and all the glorious old black and white pictures but really have no idea as to who is who. Time has really caught up with us on doing this and now it time is really of the essence, while my mom still remembers :(

  682. Jen says:

    I would love to scan my kids art work and papers into one place. Anthem, Arizona :)

  683. Jessica G says:

    The first items I would scan would be our wedding photos, which were taken before everything was digital! Next I’d start scanning artwork, schoolwork, etc. for my children’s albums.

    I have so many family photos to scan. With both my mom and mother in law dying young I inherited so many family photo albums. They need to be stored properly. All of the photos from my grandparents, my dad’s Vietnam photos. Years of memories. I also need to get caught up on the kids school papers. My oldest is graduating high school, I’m so behind. I’d also love to be able to scan the tons of paper I accumulate having a special needs son. It’s neverending. Getting some space back in the home would be amazing!

  708. Wendie Sanders says:

    My mom has been busy working on scanning (on a flatbed scanner) all of our pictures from our childhood before they fade into nothingness. She has resorted to taking pictures of the photos with her phone because it’s easier, but the quality is just not great. I would love to win this for her and get her working on the scanning again, with ease and much better quality. She is excited about capturing our memories for her grandchildren and ensuring that memories of grandpa are preserved. Thanks for doing this! Fujitsu is very generous to help :)

  723. Elizabeth says:

    My grandmother who passed recently was a record keeper. In her things we found letters she wrote to many different GIs in 1940’s … along with pictures. I want to scan all the letters / pictures she received back and give the families of the men who served. How wonderful to receive letters that your grandfather wrote in his time of service. Also there is letters about TCU about policy changes to allow enrollment of the GI and house arrangement. I want to share it with them as well.

    I’m in Missouri. My family is in CA so I’m in charge of record keeping andnit would be much easier to send a

  740. Linda Dixon says:

    I would love to win the scanner. After reading this blog post I’ve decided to do photo books for my daughter, nieces, and nephew from old pictures in order for them to have a little family history. My pictures go back to great-great grandparents which some of them know nothing about. I pulled out one box of photos this weekend and it’s truly overwhelming to get these scanned into the computer but I’m going to stick with it!

    Thanks for all of your posts. If you ever decided to have classes I would certainly be the first to purchase! I also just received the Seiki clippers for myself & daughter. Amazing!

    I am from Taylorsville, Utah and it is my DREAM to be paper free in my home. I have binders full of papers that need to be digitized but the task seems daunting. I also have photos from my childhood and my husbands childhood that I would love to have scanned as well. When my husband’s mother passed away five years ago, she left us with two large wardrobe size moving moving boxes full of photos. We need to get them scanned. Currently, his brother has them and I WANT IT DONE before something happens to them. Sharing them with family would be a gift mom would have loved! Having the Fujitsu ix500ScanSnap Document Scanner would make my dreams come true. Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity!

  745. Lynn Finkelstein says:

    I would be so excited to win this! I am in the middle of settling my mother’s estate and in cleaning out her house found years and years of photos and documents, including her years in the music industry and publicity photos and news paper articles etc. etc. Also in her home were many documents from my grnadmother and great aunt’s homes – inclueing letters written when my grandmother’s brother first came to the united states. Never mind all the school/work/photo paraphernalia I have for my own family. This would be a lifesaver and help me preserve the only thing I have left of mom – the memories, for future generations!! Thank you so much for the chance to win. I’d love to give this fabulous new “toy” a home with me in Paramus, NJ

  751. Stacy says:

    My babies are now 15 & 16, unfortunately digital cameras were not great those first couple of years so all their photos were taken on film. I’d love to be able to digitize their 1st couple of years! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I’m in Kennewick, Wa.

  761. Lindsay Heaton says:

    I’m a new mom attempting to put together my daughter’s first scrapbook. In addition to organizing all of her photos, I’ve also taken on the task of organizing boxes and boxes of my own photos from my childhoods. It’s a mess!
    I’d also love to have a scanner for when she brings home all of her artwork and schoolwork in a few years.

  765. Amy M says:

    Hi, Becky

    Oh, how I’d LOVE to win this scanner! I have been longing to buy this for a couple years now — the first time you mentioned it, I was sure this is exactly what I need. Unfortunately, it’s pretty expensive and not something I have the extra funds for.

    I, too, am trying to catch up on my kids’ scrapbooks. My daughter is graduating in May, and I’m still
    stuck back on her 5th grade pictures. I’m getting there, though! Winning this scanner would certainly help me catch up quicker.

    I’d also really like to scan the baby pictures of myself and my sister. She is not a scrapbooker, so it has been my dream to make a family history book for her. It sounds like this scanner would be the perfect tool to get all of the old photos scanned in a hurry so I can put together a Project Life book for her.

  766. Sarah says:

    This answered so many questions. Thank you!

    My mom loves family history and has finally found the time (her 8 kids are out of the home and her sweetheart passed on) to work on it. She has struggled with scanning and organizing all her ancestors photos and this scanner seems like just what she could use to make the process more efficient. I’d love to surprise her with something like this for Mother’s Day, or just any day…and maybe I’d use it every so often ;)

  767. Juel says:

    My mother passed away a number of years ago and I was given all the very old family photos from the 30’s to 40’s. I would love to be able to get them scanned faster than with my flat bed scanner! Then present my siblings with away for them to enjoy them also.

  768. Stepganie says:

    This would be so amazing for my kids scrapbooks! My oldest is only 7 but with baby number 4 on the way the easier I can make saving and organizing school papers and scrapbooks the better. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  769. Heather says:

    I’m from Atlanta, GA. the first thing I would scan was my children’s artwork!

  770. Heather S. says:

  771. Tina Lundin says:

    I have been looking for a scanner for my home business and my scrapbooking. This would be perfect. You always have the best products and recommendations, thank you! –Tina L. from Corvallis, OR

  772. Michele W says:

I would also love to be able to scan all of my own children’s schoolwork and artwork into files that could be saved for years to come. Thanks for the opportunity at the giveaway.

  773. Mona Scarbrough says:

    My name is Mona Scarbrough, from Hailey Idaho. I would use it to make books for all of my (many people!) family of all the old photos that were found when my great-uncle died. He’d hoarded every picture taken of family members. My mom now has them and with this amazing machine, we could show everyone what our ancestors looked like.

  774. Heather D says:

    Hi! I’m from Queen Creek, AZ. I would love to win this scanner! My mom gave me all of our old family photos a couple years ago. I’ve gone through them and organized them, but now want to scan them all and give digital copies to everyone. And of course make a PL book!

  775. Terry Glass says:

    This scanner looks awesome! My daughter and I are in the middle of researching our family history and I have boxes of photos my mother in law left to us that we really want to get scanned and digitalized. This scanner would make our process so much easier. Once we have a digital copy we we can then make a photo book for my daughter and one for my son.

  776. Kristeen Roessig says:

    So many choices on where to start! I would start with my hundreds of genealogy pictures. They are all sizes from small 2×2″ to larger 11×14″ and it’s frustrating scanning them in on a flatbed scanner. This scanner sounds perfect for the job! Then it would be on to children’s artwork – I have such a hard time getting rid of any of it! Thank you for the giveaway from Ohio!!!

  777. Rebecca says:

    I have been eyeing this for a long time! I’m doing a huge catch up–14 years–of family and kid albums. I would use it for batch scanning old photos and catching up kids albums using Becky’s method.

    Thanks for all the great tips and videos!

  781. Misty Ritz says:

  782. Rayna says:

    The first thing I would do is scan our old family photos. Thanks for the opportunity from Utah

  783. Kimberlee says:

    Ohh! This would be awesome! My Grandma was wonderful at documenting and taking pictures. She saved everything and we have boxes and boxes of old photos that I need to scan in and add to family search. She also wrote in her journal EVERY SINGLE DAY of her 96 years! I wou
