A QR code is a two-dimensional bar code consisting of a black and white pixel pattern, which allows up to a few hundred characters to be encoded.The content embedded in the code can be decoded and displayed using a smartphone or tablet. "QR" stands for "Quick Response" and refers to an exceptionally fast scanning process.
Due to the widespread use of smartphones, today QR codes are mostly used for mobile marketing purposes. This allows print media such as flyers, posters, catalogues or business cards to be complemented by digital content such as websites, videos, PDFs, image galleries or contact details. The possibilities are practically endless.
QR codes are created with the help of a QR code Generator. Firstly, choose the function the code generated should perform. Secondly enter the content to be encoded and customise it with your own individual colours and logos. Once this is done, the code can be download and printed out.
Yes. Thanks to a high error tolerance level, it is possible to modify the code to a certain degree without impacting the legibility of the code structure. For example, you can choose new fore- and background colours, embed a logo or change the design of the three distinctive corner points. However, do remember to test the code’s legibility once you have modified it.
You can change features and content of dynamic QR codes after their creation without changing the printed code itself. In addition, dynamic QR code scan statistics can capture the number of accesses, as well as thei. time and location. For this purpose, a forwarding URL which links to the encoded content directly is used. This URL is not present in static codes.
The measurement or "tracking" of scans is possible with dynamic QR codes. A forwarding URL which is connected to the server of the
For printing, we recommend the use of high-resolution printing formats. Besides JPG and PNG files, vector formats such as EPS and SVQ are also suitable. The latter two are especially suited for prints on large surfaces, as they can be enlarged without any loss in quality. Before publishing a code, we recommend that you perform a live test with different smartphones and apps.
Apart from the relevant file format, further aspects have to be considered. In general, the print size should be determined in relation to the number of characters encoded. If a lot of content is to be encoded, more space is required. In addition, the code should be user-friendly and easy to scan. In reality, a size of approx. 2 x 2 cm is sufficient. It should also be printed on an even surface. Wrinkles on leaflets and flyers might also negatively impact legibility.
A mobile phone and with a QR code scanner installed on it are required for the scanning process. These are available to download for free in the relevant app stores. To scan the code, launch the app and hold thecamera over the QR code. The scanning itself only takes seconds. As a benchmark for the quality of the app, you may refer to the average review rating in the app store.
Put yourself in the shoes of the target audience and ask yourself whether you would scan the printed code. Are you interested in what the code might reveal? Does it add value? Users have to go through a number of steps to interact with the advertisement — therefore, you should try to offer them something of value in return. The usage of a mobile website with interesting content that has been adapted for mobile displays has proven successful In addition, a code with a unique design; e.g. a logo, guarantees more scans. A note which states "Scan this code to find out more" also enhances this positive effect.
As early as 1994 people took advantage of the QR Code’s practical features: Denso Wave, a Japanese subsidary of the Toyota supplier Denso, developed them for marking components in order to accellerate logistic processes for their automobile production. In their country of origin the use of QR Codes is so well established that even the Japanese Immigration Office put them on their residence permits. In the meantime, QR Codes found their way to Europe over the past couple of years and are internationally standardized now. What makes QR Codes particularly advantageous is that up to 30 percent of their surface may be damaged, dirty or altered in other ways without effecting their legibility and functionality at all.
The conceivable applications are almost infinite. Especially when encoding URLs many different contents are possible. These include homepages, product sites, videos, picture galleries, coupon codes, competitions, contact forms or any other types of online forms, social media sites and so on. Many other contents do not even require an active internet connection of the used phone. Those are e.g. calendar events, WiFi connections or vCards that contain personal contact information which then can easily be added to the address book. QR Codes may be placed on web pages, print ads, products or any other flat surfaces.
