FREE STUFF: QR Code Generator

  • Sumo

According to Wikipedia, QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. A QR code uses four standardized encoding modes (numeric, alphanumeric, byte / binary, and kanji) to efficiently store data; extensions may also be used.

QR Codes are GREAT for business cards, flyers, brochures and a host of other marketing materials.


There are several different sites that have free QR Code Generators, however I’ve found to be the best free site (if you scan the code above it will take you to their site).

I prefer this site because they break the QR Code down into data types such as …

  • website url;
  • YouTube video;
  • Google Maps location;
  • Twitter;
  • Facebook;
  • LinkedIn;
  • Instagram;
  • FourSquare;
  • Telephone Number;
  • Event (VCALENDAR);
  • Paypal Buy Now Link;
  • and so much more

I used for the QR Code on the business card I designed below

I used Vistaprint to create the above card from scratch.
