This is a gift for a friend. I spent the last forever fighting with Vicki's scanner, and this is still so awful, BUT it is less awful than some of the previous scans. Anyone recommend a good cheap scanner? One day when I am not living hand to mouth, I will kick this one to the curb.

Also this is tiny, like smaller than a business card and going in a fancy tiny black frame.


  1. This piece is so cool.

    I know the "hand to mouth-living" as well:D

    my constant and trusty companion is the "Epson Stylus DX 4250" scanner and printer.
    I like him! He does good scans!
    (But I hate scanning handmade illustrations. What about reproducing them via cam?

  2. I usually champion Epson as well... but I actually went and bought an HP Scanjet 4370 off craigslist for like 50 bucks! The only reason I got that specific scanner is because they have them at work and it's a great scanner.

  3. I don't know if you are still needing a scanner... Anyway, I use an All-in-one, a Cannon MP260. I thought all-in-one scanners would be horrible, but, surprise: that's the best scanner I ever had! o_O

    Oh, and you don't need to fight with it. Very simple to use.
