ScanNCut Is More Than Just A Cutting Machine

Brother Sews Blogger

One of our favorite things about the Brother™ ScanNCut machine is its scanning ability. A crafting industry-first feature, the ScanNCut machine’s 300 DPI built-in scanner allows you to scan not only photos, magazine clippings and hand-drawn art, but also important documents and receipts that you accumulate over time. In minutes, you can have a variety of documents scanned through the ScanNCut machine and saved straight to your machine and/or memory stick for future use (memory stick not included).


Today, we decided to share with our fans some of our own tips when scanning items through your ScanNCut machine.

  • Use the Low Tack Adhesive Mat (CAMATP12) or Photo Scanning Mat (CAMATS12)
If you are scanning in receipts, paper documents and magazine clippings, the low tack adhesive mat is the perfect option. If you are scanning in delicate materials such as photos and precious documents, however, it is recommended that you use the photo scanning mat, which has no tack and clear protector shield.  
  • Organize your documents in categories before you begin scanning
This is a great way to keep your items organized. Don’t forget to keep track of the naming convention of your documents once they are saved to the ScanNCut machine (numerical file name given), so that you will have a list to work from if you ever need to organize or rename your files. What other household uses could you use ScanNCut’s 300 DPI built in scanner for? Perhaps scanning in important documents to email or maybe archiving your children’s artwork? Having ScanNCut readily available in your craft room makes it both quick and easy to keep track of important items!
