QR Codes (and other 2D Barcodes)
Quick Response codes are available here. Smartphones scan these generally to link the user to a chosen URL and automatically add contact or event information into the cell phones records. Please let us know what information you would like encoded when proceeding with your order. Alternatively, if you have questions about the information that can be encoded, please contact us.
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.
You can use our Dynamic QR codes to enable a redirect, OR you can make this redirect yourself – watch the video here that explains this DIY option in more detail (note you need access to change your own website, create redirects etc. – so it requires some technical knowledge)
Note – the size of the QR code should relate to the amount of information encoded. While QR Codes can encode a considerable amount of information more than other barcodes, if lots of information is encoded, the QR Code will need to be bigger to ensure easy scanning.
Other Types of 2D Codes
QR Codes are the most common type of 2D Code we sell. However, we can produce many other types of 2D Code at your request. If you require a different type of 2D barcode (instead of a QR code), specify this when making your order. We can supply the following alternative types of 2D matrix barcodes:
– PDF417- Data Matrix- MaxiCode- Aztec Code [/expand]
We print rolls of 500 or 1000 QR code labels.
