Product Description

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner is the world’s original photo and document flatbed scanner that does not require a computer to operate.

The Problem
Vintage photos and other priceless keepsakes scattered in boxes and drawers that are disorganized, aging, and unprotected from loss from water or fire. Photos that are difficult to remove from their picture frame, scrapbook or album. Family history records that are fragile and one-of-a-kind. Stories by elders that go unrecorded.

The Solution
The Flip-Pal mobile scanner is:

  • Versatile,
  • Quick and simple to operate,
  • Accurate,
  • Keeps your originals safe, and
  • Mobile
When it really matters, like children’s early years, preparing for natural disaster, creating a high quality scrapbook, or collecting one-of-a-kind fragile documents for your family history, the trusted Flip-Pal mobile scanner has the accuracy needed.

StoryScans talking images

Flip-Pal is the only scanner that lets you do more than just scan your old photos and other memorabilia with their names and dates. With its exclusive StoryScans capability, you can preserve and share life’s stories as talking images. Use the included Flip-Pal Toolbox software (OS-X or Windows) or ScanTools app (iOS and Android) to record voice and combine it with the scan into a small High Definition (HD 1080P) mp4 video file that tells the story. The sight and sound are never separated and a special player is not required.

Imagine how your family and friends will feel when you send them the picture of your uncle, with him describing the coincidences of how he was inducted into the Navy. Papa enjoying the antipasto – a bit early. Your mom’s 10th birthday, with her mom and grandma. Grandma’s recipe card showing the fine details of her handwriting, tattered edges, smudges, the decorative picture, with her voice telling you about it. And, every grandparent would cherish seeing a scan of your daughter’s drawing she created today in art class, with her voice telling about it. You’ll be inspired with endless possibilities for your stories that will enrich your life and of those around you.

Key benefits

The amazing EasyStitch software automatically stitches together multiple scans of large photos, documents, artwork, quilts, maps and more. Like a jigsaw puzzle.

This is very important! Imagine your disappointment if you were to travel to a library, genealogy site, or to a family gathering, for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture a vintage document or photo, and then return home and was unable to stitch it. The Flip-Pal engineering team took a wide variety of sample images and optimized EasyStitch to handle even the most complex and large on computers with regular amounts of computer memory. As a result, you can depend on the Flip-Pal Easystitch software.

Have you ever tried taking a picture using a digital camera of small objects such as jewelry, coins, badges, and other collectibles with high detail? It takes an expert to get a decent picture that way.  It's easy with Flip-Pal mobile scanner. Take the lid off, put the object(s) on the glass, and drape a dark-colored tight-weave cloth over the objects. The dark color will add emphasis and clarity. Great for showing off, trading, and selling your collectibles. Also great for insurance documentation.

Quick and simple to operate:
Just seven seconds to scan at 300 dpi. You’ll save hours and hours of time not having to remove pictures, taking them to the scanner, and then returning them to their place. Not only is it quick in operation, but it is quick in getting started. The package is easy to open – no scissors required. Just turn on the power, optionally set the time and date, and press the big green scan button. Easy. There is no software to install, no cables to connect. Do your first scan in minutes after opening the box.

Scans a high-quality digital image, far better than what can be captured with a camera or smart phone. 600 and 300 dpi resolution settings. Uniform illumination. Colors and dimensions that are true to the original. No interpolation. Uses a state-of-the-art low noise sensor.

Keeps your originals safe:
Scan photos without removing them from the album, scrapbook, or frame. They are kept safely in place with the flip-and-scan technology that the Flip-Pal team invented and patented.
· Take the lid off
· Flip the scanner over
· Position it by looking through the clear back.

It will scan through the plastic covering the photo, or the glass of the frame, without reflection.

The flatbed’s glass is gentle on old and fragile photos and documents. There is no harmful contact by a sheetfeed’s rollers or a wands' edge. Ragged edges and tears are no problem.

Low light intensity makes it suitable for fragile genealogy records.

Take advantage of the patented flip-and-scan technology to scan photos while still in the album or frame, treating fragile personal records gently.
