QR Codes on Badges and other materials: Best Practice
QR codes are a universal tool for presenting your brand and business. But you can make even a minor mistake in the design, and all your efforts will be in vain. Don't repeat mistakes! Pursue our tips on using QR codes in promotional materials and make them more expressive and potent.
Add a brief description to your QR code
Why would anyone even scan your QR code? You lose if you have no answer to this question. A QR code without instructions does not carry any value or information to the user. So be sure to print out the QR code with instructions on what your client or partner will learn from the scan.
Use informative frames for the QR code
The users are almost ready to scan the QR code. Just help them! Frames tell your audience about your QR code. Does your QR code lead to your store's Instagram? Add a “Follow Me” call-to-action box.
Add your logo to your QR code
You must do it. A company logo on a QR code helps users recognize and trust you. The L2QR builder automatically determines the optimal size for your logos, ensuring the scanning of QR codes.
Remember the contrast
However, the QR code should always be visible on a light or dark background. Consistent contrast is the key to fast reading. Use a white box or frame for guaranteed QR code scanning.
Integrate the QR code into your design
Isn't it enough to just add QR codes on badges? Sorry, but no. When a QR code looks like a random element, it gives every reason to believe that you are not being responsible enough with your presentation. Therefore, create promotional materials where the QR code is an organic part of their design.
Save and recreate your signature design
L2QR ensures that all QR codes you create are available as templates at any time. You can use them for any promotional materials or events.
Check the QR code scan before printing
You need to make sure that your QR code scans perfectly. Test it thoroughly on different devices and apps. Make sure every user can scan your QR code and that it's functional.
