It always amazes me how quickly summer flies by and back-to-school season arrives, but I have to admit, I can’t help but get excited when I see all the fun new school supplies start to arrive in the stores! From crayons and notebooks to laptop computers, all kinds of products are hitting the shelves! This year, Epson Canada has some fabulous items to help keep life organized when heading back to school.

For most students, cleaning and organization is not a priority! The Epson LabelWorks™ LW-300 is the perfect tool for anyone hoping to keep some semblance of order.

Scanning class notes, textbook pages or assignments has never been easier with the Epson WorkForce DS-30 scanner. This lightweight portable scanner is perfect for the busy student. The WorkForce DS-30 scanner delivers full-function flexibility, scanning textbook receipts, documents up to 8.5-inches x 14-inches, and more right into an e-mail, or searchable PDF.

With its sleek, space-saving design, the new Epson Expression Home XP-410 is perfect for students living in tight quarters. This small and budget-friendly printer features a 2.5-inch LCD touch panel and built-in card slots, making it easy to print photos, notepaper, timetables and more without using a PC.

Epson sent me the WorkForce DS-30 Portable Colour Document Scanner and I was so excited to test it out. This product is small enough to fit in a backpack or large purse easily, which makes it an especially great choice for an on-the-go high school or college student. The scanner works with both PC and Mac computers and comes with cleaning clothes and a sleek black pouch to make transportation easy. The device is USB powered and can scan sheets of up to 8.5” by 14”.

This handy device had a few features that made it especially appealing to me. One was the ability to scan business and ID cards. When I go to a press event or a conference, I inevitably end up with a purse filled with business cards. Some of those cards are more important than others and I love the idea of being able to quickly scan the cards of people I need to connect with in the future as soon as I get back to my room in the evening.

Another feature that I appreciated was the ability to scan a document directly to the cloud using Document Capture Pro. Having my laptop and scanner linked together so that documents I scan will automatically be available on my computer is such a huge benefit for any busy mom. In fact, I’m planning on keeping the scanner by the front door when I’m at home so that I can catalogue all the paperwork my boys bring home from school. Lost permission slips and newsletters will soon be a thing of the past!

    I love the Optical Sensor: 600 dpi colour CIS with 10,368 pixels but really – it can go anywhere. I didn’t even know that existed. :)

  2. my favorite feature is that it is USB powered, and there’s no external power supply required. That is GREAT
