QR codes are scanned by smartphones and have a variety of different functions, the most common being to automatically link the smartphone to the encoded URL when scanned. They can also be used to automatically create calendar events, add contact information, make a phone call, and send a text as well as various other functions. We can encode any information you like into a QR Code. Please let us know what you would like encoded in the ‘additional information’ section when filling out your details.
To ensure your physical QR code has a longer life span, we recommend programming your QR code with a QR redirect. This allows you to redirect your QR code to different links in the future, multiple times, without changing the physical QR code. It also allows you to monitor traffic from the QR code. Watch the video here that explains this in more detail.
Note – if you are encoding a lot of information into your QR Code then you may require a larger code. 3 or 4 CM squared can encode a URL or a couple of lines of text easily (without affecting the scannability), however, if you are encoding a VCard or VCal event, then a larger code will be necessary. If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
These QR codes are created automatically (as long as they aren’t too complicated) and emailed to you within a few minutes.
If the QR code is complicated, or somehow fools our automation system, we will manually create the QR Code and email it to you. This will normally take 2-24 hours, depending on the time of day/week that you make the order.
