QR Codes

A QR code links people to a particular website or webpage. When a person scans a QR Code with their smartphone, their smartphone will be directed to a particular website (or webpage). 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.

We can supply QR codes for v business cards – they contain the information that would normally be on a business card.

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.

    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 cannot 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. Standard QR codes are made automatically and you will receive in 5 minutes. More complex QR codes such as v-business cards have to be made manually and take 1-12 hours.

    The QR code images will be emailed to you in 5 formats .tif, .bmp, .jpg, .pdf & .eps formats.

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).
