The ScanNCut is the first digital scanner, printer, and cutter all in one machine! There are no cartridges to mess with or complicated software to figure out. This means that crafters can have the ability to scan almost anything and place it in the machine to make cut outs in 300 DPI.

The powerful scanner makes creating digital stencils with the built in cutter easy for quilting, scrapbooks, and many other craft projects. The built-in scanner makes the ScanNCut machine the only home and hobby cutting machine that can take any image from a photo to a hand drawn sketch, scan it, and allow the user to precisely cut the shapes or outlines you want.
