How to share a URL, an email address or a line of text with a QR Code

1. Enter the website URL you want your QR code to point to, an email address to share or a short block of text.

 

When someone scans your code with their phone, they will automatically see what you want to share with them.

 

The URL should not be very extremely long or the code will not work. As a guide, if you can see the whole URL on your browser's window it will work fine when converted to a QR code.

 

If you want to share an email address simply enter it in the field.

 

You can also share a short line of text.  For example, you can share your contact info and a short description of your project.

 

The QR code displayed on the screen is dynamic and changes as you type. You can confirm that the QR code works by scanning it on the screen with your phone. Most newer phones can read QR codes directly with their cameras or may require a QR code scanning app.

 

2. Enter your name and email address. A printable version of the QR code will automatically be send to that email address.

 

3. Read and agree to the terms and conditions.

 

4. Click on the "Send me the QR code" button to receive a printable code graphic by email.

 

5. Once you receive our email simply drag the QR code image to your desktop to download it. You can add it to your poster as a picture. Make it between 3 and 6 inches for maximum ease of scanning.
