How to Choose a QR Code Generator

As graphic designer and marketing person I am always looking for new ways to help my clients advertise their goods and services. I have had my own QR code for a couple of years now, but have not really utilized it until now and am beginning to incorporate the codes into my client campaigns. As the technology becomes better so does the ability to really start utilizing the codes for business and marketing applications. I came across this description on beqrious.com site and wanted to share some of their information. See below for a copy of their article.

A QR code generator is a software or online application that allows you to create QR codes. QR codes are probably the most popular and flexible two-dimensional barcode that is used by most businesses and individuals for anything from their marketing campaigns, education and even in ordinary lives and lets not forget just for fun!

As QR codes gain popularity, more and more Web sites are offering free QR code generator services. With all the choices, and because they are all similarly free, most people just use the first QR code generator they find. But how do you distinguish one service from the other? How can you be sure that you are using the best QR code generator there is? Here are five tips:

1. A QR code generator should be flexible. The best thing about QR codes is that it can contain a lot of different types of information behind it. So your QR code generator should be able to handle all these various types of information, but still be very convenient to use.

2. Your QR code generator should be easy to use. On the other side of the spectrum, there are generators that try to incorporate as many types of information possible, but the resulting interface is too confusing to use to be of any help at all. On top of being able to let you easily input your desired information, you should be able to find your way through your QR code generator easily. A tabbed and properly indexed QR code generator can work wonders if you are working with different types of URLs, data, social media platforms, and graphics.

3. Choose a QR code generator that allows you to download your codes in different file formats. While most services that allow you to create QR code allow you to download the generated codes in graphic format, it certainly helps to have the code in vector format such as a PDF file that doesn’t lose its resolution when enlarging. This would be very helpful if you need to print large versions of your QR code for printed materials.
