Mark’s favorite picture of his father is trapped in an old photo album under deteriorated plastic that is sticky and brittle. He tried a high-quality 35mm camera, but it turned out yellowed and out of focus. Removing that picture and taking it somewhere else to scan is risky. Also risky is turning the album upside-down on a flatbed scanner and pressing the binding down could ruin many albums. Flip-Pal’s patented flip-and-scan technology allows him to gently place his Flip-Pal on the photo which was kept safely undisturbed in the album. His memory is now preserved forever.
Kathy creates a shadowbox with her father’s medal’s as a veteran. Then, she scans a gift bag and uses it as the surface of wall art for an unexpected idea. Do you have projects that deserves to be high quality, are meant to last a long time, and be something you can be proud of? When preserving your memories really matters, you need to retain the detail of small objects like medals, certificates, coins, and other memorabilia. That means high resolution and faithful color. Kathy can be confident sharing her dad’s medals with her family because her Flip-Pal provides accurate scans.
Gordon wanted to create a special DVD for his wife’s parents 50′th anniversary. Well, taking a conventional USB flatbed scanner with computer to their house several states away was quite an ordeal. You can imagine it yourself – setting it all up on the kitchen table with wires everywhere. Then there was the angst of taking pictures off the wall, photos off of shelves, and other memorabilia to the scanner. Instead, leave those pictures on the wall. With Flip-Pal’s mobility, you take the scanner to the picture rather than taking the picture to the scanner.
Mark’s daughter painted a picture when she was young, about 11×14 inches, that is now mounted and sits on a wall of his house. He would like to use it to create cards for a birthday announcement. He scans it in multiple sections and uses the included EasyStitch software to automatically reassemble them into their larger original. For quilts, fabrics, “refrigerator art”, fragile letters, historical and military records, and keepsakes of all sizes, his Flip-Pal’s versatility handles all these like no other scanner.
