What is a QR Code?
A QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that is readable by smartphone cameras. Your QR Code will direct users to your Tech Card® URL, where they can view and save your contact info.
QR vs NFC
QR codes are two-dimensional barcodes that deliver information when scanned with a mobile device camera. NFC is a radio-frequency technology that allows the transmission of data between an NFC tag and NFC-enabled device (Check out our NFC products). Both options are great for sharing your Tech Card(s). Which share method do you prefer? Learn which tag type is best for you and your next project.
A physical link to a digital world
Think of a QR code as a square URL. It gives customers access to your Tech Card® from wherever they happen to see the code. It could be a poster or a sticker posted somewhere in the physical world, or you meeting someone face to face, it instantly takes them to your Tech Card®.
Customers simply scan the QR Code with their ever-present phones and they’re immediately taken to your Tech Card. It’s the internet-of-things come to life.
The world has caught up to QR codes
QR codes are a normal part of life now. (People even get them as tattoos.) They’re almost as ubiquitous as bar codes and virtually every phone has a built-in QR code reader now (Camera). People have the ability to easily scan them and that means they have the ability to gain easy access to your Tech Card®, no matter where they are and no matter what information you want to give them.
