The Limited Edition ‘Kanazawa Leaf’ ScanSnap iX1600

To celebrate the last 20 years, we have created a limited edition ScanSnap iX1600*, with only 22 available in the world. The limited-edition ScanSnap is made with the historic foil processing of ‘Kanazawa leaf’. The ‘Kanazawa leaf’ technique is a traditional 450-year-old craft in Kanazawa, from the Ishikawa Prefecture in Japan, where our company was founded.

Our new ScanSnap iX1600 has been enhanced with the beautiful image of the four seasons echoing our Japanese heritage. The visual theme of the seasons reflects the growth and maturity of the ScanSnap brand over the past 20 years. Just like the seasons’ change, ScanSnap is always developing to meet new customer needs.

 To mark the occasion and to say a huge ‘thank you’ for helping us achieve this incredible milestone, we have some fantastic offers and competitions for you – with more to come. Here are just a few of the ways we’ll be celebrating this achievement.
