Did you know that your ScanSnap iX1600 and iX1400 can scan ID and credit cards?

Are you the type of person who has a copy of your state-issued identification card? Maybe you even make copies of your credit cards, when you take a trip “just in case.” But paper copies aren’t secure, and you might not have access to them when or where you need them. Even though IDs and credit cards are often different than paper-based documents—thicker, harder, and smaller than invoices or documents—you can easily use your ScanSnap iX1600 or ScanSnap iX1400 to scan these items.


That’s right: these models are not just for business cards, receipts, photos, and documents. They are also great for small businesses. Do you need to capture identification documents for compliance? No problem, these models can handle plastic documents in the document feeder, so you don’t have to walk over to the copy machine and battle with the right combination of buttons to use the flatbed.


Scanning credit cards and ID documents is easy. Just place them in the document feeder with the embossed side face down. Feel free to add other documents to the batch. Once they’ve been loaded, just press the scan button on the iX1400 or one of the scan profiles on the touch screen display of the iX1600. One button and that’s it. The cards and documents quickly scanned. They can now be quickly and securely accessed whenever and wherever you need them. And speaking of security, you can add a PDF password to any ScanSnap profile, so your scanned documents are protected at scan time.
