Business Card Monday: QR Codes??

27 Sep

Howdy and HAPPY MONDAY!!! AHHHHHH :-)
So, this AM, I wanted to smack ya with some awesome Business Cards with those crazy QR Codes…have you heard of them? I know you’ve seen them! They are little square barcodes you can have link to a website, phone number, text, etc. Pretty sweet, especially for business cards. I just created a few for myself. Also…the last card below doesn’t have the QR Code but it’s another example of how to design a card with several social media links…it’s modeled after the Moleskin Notebooks.

    Thanks for including my business card. It never made it to print as QR codes weren’t really in the main stream when I designed it. Though now with the abundance of smartphones it seems like a great way to keep the business card relevant.
    For anyone who is interested in doing this I suggest creating a QR code that links to a web page designed for mobile viewing. Keep in mind that QR codes come in a number of formats that change how a reader handles them. For instance you can create a URL link that will open a web page, or a phone number that will activate dialer. You can also cause a QR code to create a SMS message, which could be very powerful.

      Thanks for commenting, Drew. Yeah, I love how diverse the QR Codes can be and how simple it is to get one :)

      It’s very easy. Google provides an API that outputs QR codes on the fly: http://code.google.com/apis/chart/docs/gallery/qr_codes.html

      You simple put the google url in a <img source and out pops a QR code!
