Any tips for using a QR Code generator for email?
Make sure the information is accurate
We cannot stress this enough. Make sure that the recipient’s email address is valid and avoid any typos. Printing QR Codes with invalid information will result in a very expensive reprinting cost. The Email QR Code is a form of Static Code, which means the information inside cannot be edited once it’s generated. If there’s a mistake in the email address, the QR Code can still be scanned, however, you’ll risk not receiving the email because of the typo.
Pay attention to the character limit
Even though you can write a lengthy email inside an Email QR Code, it doesn’t mean that you should. Not only is it unnecessary, but your QR Code will load slower if it contains that much data. For comparison, take a look at the image below between a short Email QR Code and a long one.
Minimum size for QR Code to be scannable
We recommend a minimum size of 2 x 2 cm (0.8 x 0.8 in) for any QR Codes. This ensures that your QR Codes remain scannable, especially when you’re about to print a large batch for your product packaging for example. Visit our guide before you print for more tips.
Add your own logo
If you own a company, include a logo on your QR Code to increase brand awareness. Whenever a QR Code with your logo appears anywhere, your audience or customers will not hesitate to scan it as it makes them feel secure about the legitimacy of the QR Code.
Get noticed with a splash of color
QR Codes are the perfect place to splash some colors that match your personality or brand. They don’t have to be black and white anymore, so you can experiment with complementing colors. One important thing to note: Always use a darker color for the foreground (the black and square pixels itself) and a lighter color for the background. Visit our QR Code design guide for more tips.
Four different printing formats
Our QR Code generator for email makes sure that your QR Codes stay in high resolution no matter what. You have the option to choose between JPG, PNG, EPS, or even SVG file formats. It’s easy to integrate the QR Code to your print material design using any photo editing tool.
Can I see some Email QR Code use cases?
For fitness studios
Gym-goers are sometimes too shy to approach a member of staff or personal trainers at the gym. Why not bridge the gap by implementing an Email QR Code on promotional materials? This makes it easy to get them to request a free personal training session with just a scan.
Easily get feedback from your customers while they dine at your restaurant. How? By adding Email QR Codes on table tents, of course. Customers will feel that their input is valuable, and you’ll get direct and honest feedback to improve your food or service. It’s a win-win situation!
For consumer electronics manufacturers
Nothing is more annoying than having technical difficulty or faulty products after purchasing them. It’s even more annoying when manufacturers make it hard for consumers to contact them in case something like this occurs. An easy solution is to add an Email QR Code to the packaging, manual or even directly on the product itself so consumers can send emails with a scan.
For tourism agencies
How do you easily get people to book a travel package from an advertisement? Do you tell them to visit your website, where they then have to fill out a form to get more info about a travel package? Or do you simply print an Email QR Code on the ad to get them to contact you directly, thus leading to an immediate sale? Your choice.
