    Here's a comparison between my scanner, which just may not be the best scanner for cards vs. the the cam scanner app.

    HP Envy 7640 Scanner (again, probably not the best):

    For what I want to do, I'll still with the Cam Scanner App from here on out and won't invest money into another scanner.

    cam scanner app has worked great. It certainly has it's uses. I do prefer kirbyaddicts desktop scanner pic though.

    fwiw I've redone all my 01, 09 and sweet sigs using the app. they turned out great I think.. but again I'm a stickler for lighting and that has been a frustration for myself.

    I bought an Epson V600 scanner just for scanning cards and for the life of me I cannot get it scan the entire image area on the scanner bed. So the bottom or top of the card keeps getting cut off. I just spent 2 hours searching for a solution online but found nothing that worked.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    on my Canon scanner, I had to turn off a setting that tried to detect borders of the object being scanned, and let it scan full platen then crop manually.

    I've tried changing every setting that I could, but the scanner just will not scan the full image area. It does a great job of scanning slabs, which is the main reason I got it, but only being able to scan 3 cards at a time is a huge pain in the a$$.

    what kind of scanner is it. does it offer a customized scan setting that you can set it to full platen.

    It's an Epson V600. On the actual scanner there's a "document max" arrow where the images get cut off. I'm guessing this is the way it was designed, Which I think is really, really stupid. My cheap all in one scanner the full area so I can put up to 8 cards on at once without them being cut off. The "high quality" scanner only fits 3 cards. Asinine.

    I've had two Epson scanners in the past, one I really liked and one I hated. What made the difference between the two for me was the software that they came with.

    I use the CanoScan 9000f Mark 2. It's expensive, but the quality is usually fantastic:
