Brother launches first-to-market ScanNCut machine

Unparallel precision cutting and high-resolution scanning technology take design projects to the next level

DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX (QC) — November 25, 2013 — Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd., a leader in small business technology, today announced the launch of its innovative ScanNCut machine. The first of its kind in the crafting market, the revolutionary ScanNCut features a built-in 300DPI scanner that effortlessly scans and cuts the most intricate designs onto almost any material such as paper, vinyl, fabric, tissue paper, wood veneer, leather, canvas, plastic or cellophane. The ScanNCut, which features 600 built-in designs and a 1MB memory capacity, can store custom-created designs, unleashing creativity by giving crafters the technology to create intricate quilts, embroidery appliqués, scrapbooks or cards limited only by their imagination.

“Brother is thrilled to put ScanNCut’s cutting-edge technology in the hands of quilters and embroiderers alike, so they can take their creativity to the next level,” says Dwayne Filipchuk, Director of Product Planning at Brother Canada. “The easy-to-use on-screen guide combined with rich functionality allows the crafter to scan and cut the most complex shapes quickly and accurately, giving them the freedom to create truly personalized designs.”

The lightweight and portable ScanNCut, with an 11.75” x 11.75”work area, scans any design from a photograph to a child’s drawing. All designs, scanned in full colour from 100 to 300 DPI, can be saved to the ScanNCut or onto a USB flash drive as a JPEG file, for editing or use on future projects. No need for expensive cartridges, software or computers to get elaborate designs.

Expert embroiderers, quilters and scrapbookers who have previewed the ScanNCut machine have praised its precision, speed and flexibility. Katharina Doyle, co-founder of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, says: “The ScanNCut is a revolutionary tool that will be perfect for the scrapbooking and paper crafting community because it’s user-friendly and extremely versatile.”

Brother’s ScanNCut is available now at authorized Brother dealers nationwide for a MSPR of $549.
