QR Code Generation
Take your marketing to the next level with a QR code.
QR codes have become more and more popular over recent years. We can generate QR codes for many applications. Unlike many sites that only give you bitmaps to use we supply fully scalable and editable vectors.
QR or Quick Response
While they may look simple, QR codes are capable of storing lots of data. But no matter how much they contain, when scanned, the QR code should allow the user to access information instantly – hence why it's called a Quick Response code.
What are QR Codes?
A QR code is a type of barcode that can be read easily by a digital device and which stores information as a series of pixels in a square-shaped grid. QR codes are frequently used to track information about products in a supply chain and – because many smartphones have built-in QR readers – they are often used in marketing and advertising campaigns. More recently, they have played a key role in helping to trace coronavirus exposure and slow the spread of the virus.
Scanning a QR Code Using Your Device
Most smartphones have built-in QR scanners, which are sometimes built in the camera. A QR scanner is simply a way to scan QR codes. Some tablets, such as the Apple iPad, have QR readers built into their cameras. Some older devices may require a particular app to read QR codes – these apps are readily available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
1 Open the QR reader application or the camera on your smartphone.
2 Point it at the QR code – you should be able to point your camera from any angle and still receive the necessary information.
3 The data will be instantly shown on screen – for instance, if the QR code contains contact details, your phone should instantly download these.
