What are QR codes

QR code

QR codes are a type of matrix (2D) barcodes. The big difference with the older linear (1D) barcode is that it can contain hundreds of characters. Perfect for storing links or other digital data.

The QR code technology is freely licensed by DENSO WAVE and in the beginning designed for the Japanese automotive industry. Thanks to the fast readability and easy to recognize design we can nowadays find QR codes everywhere.

What we do

We offer a platform that generates an QR code connected to a given URL. After the creation of your QR code you can export it in various formats. This includes an easy to print PDF document.
