Album Art That Lasts Forever

Recently, the music world gathered in Los Angeles to honor the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the past year. Like most, you probably were one of the 25.6 million^ people who tuned in to watched from the comforts of your own home. Dancing, acceptance speeches, tributes. People love music. They always have and they always will.

Over the years, what has changed is the way we consume music. Today, you can listen to anything you want instantly thanks to music streaming services. But remember the days (pre-2000’s) when obtaining music was an experience of its own? You would hop in the car, head down to the local music store, find the album you had been waiting months to release, buy it, take it home, rip off the plastic and the moment occurs – you open it. You couldn’t just pop it into the CD player or cassette player you HAD to spend minutes ogling over the bold cover art. You HAD to read through the compactable pull-out liner, some even included a section for taking notes. Gone are those days.


Do you still have a box or boxes full of your favorite CDs or cassettes? At some point did you back them up to a hard drive, but still can’t bare to part with history? Do you have them hidden because if your spouse finds the box, the trash will be its next destination? If you answered yes to one of those, we have a solution for you.

1. Open the box or boxes
2. Collect all of your favorite album liners
3. Place them into your trusty ScanSnap iX500 and iX100
4. Press the blue button
5. Sit back and relax


Even better, if you previously installed ScanSnap Cloud, those prized scans will go straight to your cloud service of choice, including Google Drive, Dropbox, Box and Evernote.

That’s it. It’s as simple as that. Now if you decide to discard those boxes and the contents within them you can rest easy. Your beloved album liners have been officially preserved, and those happy memories can be accessed at any time in the future thanks to ScanSnap.
