What is a Patch Code?

A Patchcode is a sheet of paper for separation during scanning. Most scanners that support patch codes (Canon range for sure) will provide PDF files of the Patchcodes that you can print out and slip between the files to separate. This then enables batch scanning.

Our top tip is to get some really bright sheets of paper and print the Patchcodes on these so you can recycle them.
