About DYMO

(Not compatible with Win 64 bit computers. Not compatible with Mac)

From the trusted company that's been creating innovative contact management solutions for over 14 years, CardScan Personal is the most affordable system. The Personal scanner is designed to take on the road, so it's ideal for scanning in your hotel room, on the plane, train or at a tradeshow.

Scanning business cards is only half the story. You're likely getting as many contacts in email these days. CardScan makes quick work of that, too.

Simply highlight the contact information in an email signature, web page or other text file and drag it over to the CardScan software. It's instantly placed into the correct fields. It can't be much easier than that!

If you're sync'ing to Outlook, you now have your contact data there too, all with one click of the mouse. CardScan is also the only leading business card reader with online back-up, web access and an updating service. CardScan keeps your data safe so you can access it anytime.

How's it different from other CardScan products? CardScan Personal is the most affordable system. It's designed for an individualto use. It includes the same software as CardScan Executive without the ability to sync with ACT!, Lotus Notes and GoldMine. The scanner is monochrome only unlike the Executive which is color or monochrome and faster.

CaqrdScan Business Card Scanner

Great little business card scanner. However, the unit is now out-of-date as it can't be used with 64 bit computers, and it is no longer being made. I had to use my husband's laptop as the software would not work on both my desktop and his desktop. Then when I went to look for technical support I found that it didn't work with 64 bit machines, and the software was last updated in 2009. Too bad, as it's a great little unit.

Card scanner

When I first started using the scanner, it worked great. However, now the software is not transferring the contacts to Outlook although none of the Sync information should have changed. The failure to transfer properly to Outlook makes this scanner almost worthless.

Good scanners


from Grand Rapids, MI  -  Tech Savvy

These are easy to use. We purchased several of them for scanning insurance cards. They could have a little bit larger scan size but overall they are good.


Bought it for Win 7 64-bit


from Carol Stream, IL  -  Tech Savvy

We used the older CardScan 7.05 scanners that worked with our Win XP machines. We use the scanner in an office environment to have a central location for all our contacts that can be accessed by multiple people at the same time. It does the job for us and seems to work on our newer Windows 7 64-bit machines, which was why we purchased it.


Great product more than I expected.


from Fenton, Mi  -  Tech Savvy

Plugged in downloaded supplied software started scanning.


Yes it does work on 64 bit


from Las Vegas, NV  -  Tech Savvy

Contrary to an earlier customer review, it does work on Windows 7 64 bit. It installed easily and is pretty darn smart. If the OCR places any info in the wrong spot, it is easy to fix. I like it well enough, I have ordered a 2nd one for my Son to use at his office.


Love it!


from Atlanta, GA  -  Tech Savvy

I've had my Admins always enter my cards. This thing does it faster and better. I get an image stored of the actual card for future reference. Also, the OCR is amazing! It gets most fields perfectly correct for easy transmission to my Outlook Contacts.

from Houston TX  -  Tech Savvy

I could have saved a lot of time and money if this product would have been properly advertised as not working with 64 bit operating systems. Typical American product, so I don't know why I should have expected it to work in the first place. I guess I should take the blame for expecting anything in America to work as advertised.


cardscan personal card scanner v8


from san juan capistrano  -  Tech Savvy

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Jeff S  Will it work with apple os 10 .8?
JON F  Hardware should work but the contact software says PC only. It recommends the Executive model (and quite a lot more money) for cross platform. I would call Dymo, they might have a software patch or upgrade path. I've used mine quite a bit and it works perfectly.
Shopper  can I use with a MAC and do I need software?
KENT B  Don't think so. Mine is still in the box.
Jerry R  Will this scanner also scan receipts or just business cards?
ASHOK M  This product only works for Business cards.
