QR Codes are a growing force in marketing
works on all your signs, vans, posters etc
QR Codes ("Quick Response" Codes) are described as "multi-dimensional bar codes" which can be displayed on signs, boards, window displays, posters, vehicles, and stickers. They can be photographed and scanned by a suitably equipped mobile phone and automatically decoded to reveal a text message or, more commonly, a web link. As a marketing tool, they are proving to be an amazing innovation and what's more implementing them into your graphics is FREE!
Generating the Code
First you need to generate the code. There are countless websites that offer this service, many of which are free. You simply type your message, website address, or phone number and the website will then generate the code. The result is a weird black and white graphic which you can send to us to include in your sign or graphic product. If you get the option, generate the largest version the website will allow for best reproduction quality.
There are so many generators around that you'll have little trouble finding one that suits you. Start by Googling "QR Code Generator" and you're off. One that we like is http://qrcode.kaywa.com/.
Will people actually use the code?
Yes! The growth of QR Codes is steadily increasing, and more and more modern smart phones are perfectly capable of scanning and decoding them.
