Scanbox has only 2 sides so it can make as much use of the natural light as possible.
Scanbox+ comes with a light diffusing back flap and a set of LED Lights with wires* designed to optimize lighting conditions inside the box and give you an even higher quality end scan.

Please add the postage to your pledge as indicated in that reward. Eg. Your pledge will be more than the reward unless it states postage is included for that reward in your region. A typical scenario is layed out below. Scanbox+ sent to a USA address is as follows: Pledge - $28 Choose - $25 reward of a Scanbox+ This equates to $28 for a Scanbox+ sent to a USA address. Just use the amount of the reward you would like for the region you are in as stated in the pledge section. We have also recently been able to ship from USA and Australia for $3 on the single Scanbox options. So if you're in Australia just pledge $3 extra to cover postage.Last updated:

Scanbox is optimized to work with smartphones, especially the iPhone 4S and 4. But it works just as well with any device that has a camera.
Most smartphones will work perfectly however Andy emailed us and said that his HTC Desire HD does not capture the full A4 document when it is 310mm above the document. (it needs to be raised another 50mm to get a full A4 document in frame). The best way to confirm you will get the full document in your image is to hold you phone 310mm above the document and you'll be able to see what it will capture. (This is the same height as the actual Scanbox.) Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this and we'll be able to guide you through the process.Last updated:

Apple devices have a great function called "AirPrint", which allows you to wirelessly print to any AirPrint-enabled printer. There are many available from HP, Epson, and Canon. Just visit the Apple Online Store or view a list of AirPrint-enabled printers and find one that’s right for you.
There is also an application for the Mac called Printopia which turns most printers connected to a Mac into an AirPrint enabled printer.
