Enter Comics Faster with our DX Laser Scanner's New Recommended Setup Sheet

We've just put in a revised version of our DX Laser Scanner's setup sheet to make scanning comics even faster. The new setup sheet forces that scanner to include the "supplemental" (the small digits at the right of the barcode which contain the issue number) even if it needs to look a little harder to see them.  This should make scanning standard comics much faster and reliable.

To use it, just print it out, scan the codes in the order from top to bottom, and you're ready to go!
