Tool to Generate QR Codes

You can use this tool to generate QR codes for all your needs. This tool can create the following types of QR codes:
  • URL: Create a QR Code that contains a web address. Such QR codes are useful for printing your website address and URLs or social media platforms.
  • Text: You can add any text and encode it in the form of a QR code. Such codes are general purpose, you can encode any text information. However, I would advise that you try to select the most appropriate type of code that suits the kind of information you have. For example, you can make a Text QR code of a URL as well -- but if you want to encode a URL, it is better to select URL type of QR code.
  • Phone Number: Encode your phone number in a QR code and let people easily get it by scanning your code! An easy and accurate way of distributing your phone number.
  • Contact Information: QR Codes can contain structured contact information also. You can encode your contact QR card with your name, address, phone number and email ID.
  • Email Message: It is possible to encode an email message in the form of a QR code. Just enter receiver's email, subject and message text -- and click the "Get QR Code" button to get you codified email message!
  • Geographical Coordinates: If you want to tell someone about an exact location --it's a great idea to send them latitude, longitude and altitude information in the form of a QR code. This leaves no chance of mistake by receiver in noting the information.
  • Wi-fi Configuration: If you are offering public wi-fi facility, just create a QR code of the connection information and display the code at a suitable place. People can easy scan your code and instantly connect with the wi-fi router.

What are QR Codes?

It's been a long time since these square barcode like codes became popular in advertisement industry. A few years ago, all of a sudden, these strange looking codes began to appear in ads, magazines, newspapers, banners, business cards, hoardings etc. Although, it's been quite some time that these codes are around us -- but still many of us don't know what they are, what is their significance or how to use them. People hardly know how to create a QR code, how to read a QR code or how to use one!

These square 2D barcodes are called QR Codes (abbreviation for Quick Response Code). These QR codes are machine-readable just like standard barcodes that we have been seeing on the backside of books and goods from superstore. QR codes originated in Japan.

These graphical codes are better than barcode because these can represent URL, text, coordinates and phone numbers etc. Another big advantage of these codes is that these can be read using a number of cell phones (including iPhone and Android based cell phones). The phone's camera can scan the code and a QR code reader software can interpret the information for you.

How to read a QR code

You need is a camera that can take a picture of QR code and a software (QR code reader) that can analyze the picture to extract the information hidden inside the code. Both of these things are easily available in most of the smartphones today.

How to use QR codes

QR codes can be printed on advertising, flyers, posters, invites, TV ads etc. containing information like:

  • Product details
  • Contact details
  • Offer details
  • Event details
  • Competition details
  • A coupon
  • Twitter, Facebook, MySpace IDs
  • A link to your YouTube video

Customers reading these advertisement will scan the QR code with their mobile phone and save the information without having to type it. This eliminates the chance of typing mistakes. If a customer have to type your company's URL in their mobile browser, and they make a mistake, your website will not open. Thus you may lose a potential deal! Giving out URLs in the form of QR Codes is a much easier, quicker and safer way.
