QR Code Generation

So what about the QR code generation?
The potential issues of online QR code generators
If using an online QR code generator, ensure it gives you a vector version (eg .svg file). Many generators only export RGB pixel based QR codes, which run the risk of not printing correctly.
Also, don’t fall for the QR codes with a symbiol; / emblem / logo in the middle. All you are doing is advertising these third party services and making your business logo ’cheap’.

So how do you know if you are getting a correct generated QR code?
Simple! We supply for fee! We generate vector QR codes based on your confirmed URL. This ensures the best, sharp print quality 😊
