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.

QR Code (or other 2D Barcode)
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 to be 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. V business cards can only be made as static.
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.
Quantity Price per image 1 R 160
2 – 4 R 140 each
5 – 9 R 110 each
10 – 19 R 80 each
20 + R 40 each
We have TWO types of QR codes available here for website URLs – Static and Dynamic (via URL hosting service)
STATIC QR Codes
– these encode YOUR URL directly in the QR code
– these are permanent – they will work as long as your website URL doesn’t change
– they can’t be changed, as the URL is encoded directly in the QR Code
– unlimited scans
(these can also be used for things other than URLs, eg encoding text, v business cards, sending an email or SMS message)
DYNAMIC QR Codes
These use our Dynamic QR Code service, which enables the target URL to be changed repeatedly in the future if required.
Unlimited scans: Scans of the Dynamic QR Code are UNLIMITED so long as you don’t abuse the QR code with millions of scans that cause technical problems such as crashed servers.
Functions for life: The Dynamic QR Code, with its redirection capability, will function FREE for two years and will continue to function after that for as long as you pay an annual fee of $10.
Unlimited redirection of the target URL: On initial purchase, you specify a target URL. You can ask us to REDIRECT target URL as often as you wish, at a fee of $10 for each redirection.
Custom Tracking Reports: You can pay us for TRACKING REPORTS with prices depending on frequency, the complexity of reports, and how many QR Codes are being tracked – please enquire for 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.
When making your order, please let us know what URL address (or other data) you want to be encoded into your QR Code.
We can supply QR codes for v business cards – they contain the information that would normally be on a business card.
We will email your QR Code to you in 5 different formats (jpeg, eps, bmp, pdf & tiff).
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).
We also offer QR code Customization for an additional cost
