What is a QR Code


A Quick Response code is a 2D barcode that can store more than 4,000 alphanumeric characters in a very limited space. When you compare that to a traditional linear single dimensional barcode, it’s not difficult to see the advantage – more information in less space.

These barcodes were originally developed for use in the auto manufacturing industry, but QR codes have gained in popularity and have been heavility used in advertising, marketing and networking.

QR codes can be used to link directly to a such as a custom landing page, or your social media pages, and can also store text information like mailing addresses. QR codes are a great way to bridge the gap between the traditional world of offline marketing, and the online world, where you can captivate your viewers with dynamic, engaging content.

QR codes can be read by anyone with a smart phone and a barcode scanner app, or a 2D barcode scanner.
What do you need a QR Code for?

You can find QR codes being used to send audiences to a website for browsing, to bookmark a webpage, to initiate phone calls, send short messages, send emails, produce links to web URL’s, start chats with blackberry users, connect to WI-FI networks, access information, get coupons, view videos, purchase items, process orders, advertise products, etc.   Whatever your need I can create the code to do the job.

How to read a QR Code

Assuming most people don’t walk around with a barcode scanner in their pocket, you will need a QR-code app and a smartphone or tablet equipped with a camera. iOS users should check out RedLaser. Android users can try either RedLaser or QR Droid, and BlackBerry users will like QR Code Scanner Pro. All of these apps are free to download, and each one should handle any standard QR code without issue.
