QR codes are most popular for encoding a website URL – so that when a person scans that QR Code with their smartphone, their smartphone will be directed to a particular website page.
QR Codes are a popular way to advertise a new product or service. QR Codes can often be seen in magazines or on business cards, posters, billboards etc.
[QR Codes can also be used to encode other information, such as V-business cards.or they can be used to prompt the user to send a SMS or email to a specified address. We can provide any of these different QR Codes if required]

This service is automated so you will receive your QR code images in minutes. To be able to do this, we need the URL or other information you wish encoded into the QR code. If you don’t supply this the automation can
not make the QR code.
Decide how many QR codes you need, add that quantity to cart. Then at the checkout page enter the data or URL you want encoded into the “additional information” box on the checkout page, with separate URLs on separate lines. Standard QR codes (Static and Dynamic) are made automatically and will be emailed to you within minutes. More complex QR codes such as v-business cards have to be made manually and take 2-20 hours.
The QR code images will be sent to you in 5 formats .tif, .bmp, .jpg, .pdf & .eps formats.
NOTE: If purchasing multiple QR Codes at the same time, our discounted pricing structure requires that they all be made at the same time.
We have TWO types of QR codes available here for website URLs – Static and Dynamic (via URL hosting service)

When making your order, please let us know what URL address (or other data) you want to be encoded into your QR Code.
To ensure your Statc 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 require a different type of 2D barcode (instead of a QR code), please specify this when making your order. We can supply the following alternative types of 2D matrix barcodes:
– Data Matrix
– Aztec Code
How to use your QR Code
If a QR Code is printed onto a business card, it can be fairly small (e.g. 3 or 4 cm). However, if a QR Code is going to go on a billboard or poster – and people are going to scan it from a distance – then it will need to be much bigger (e.g. 1 metre wide). Let us know how big your QR Code needs to be when making your order.
If you have a long website address, your QR Code will need to be a bit larger (to scan well). Alternatively, you can use a URL shortener (e.g. goo.gl).
After you receive your QR Code, please test it to make sure it works well (and let us know if you’re having any problems).
