ALG prints QR (Quick Response) 2D codes across all of our printing processes that provide many ways for companies to deliver detailed and variable messaging. QR codes can be used to link users to websites, manuals, safety information and other on-line resources as anyone with a smartphone can scan the code and access the information.
One main benefit to consider in using a QR code, is that it can contain much more information than a similar size 1D barcode.
The need to get more and more information to the consumer in a digital format has made the QR Code a method worth embracing. Where 1D barcodes are long in size and restricted in terms of data content, the QR Code can provide the most data for the smallest amount of space on your label or decal.
In the past, reproducing QR Codes below 1.2 inches was the barrier. At ALG, we have a process in place that allows 100% scanning ability for a .30" x.30" size, giving our customers the ability to benefit in using a QR Code, when space is limited.
WHY USE A QR CODE?
QR CODE DESIGN
QR CODE PRODUCT APPLICATIONS
QR Codes provide a powerful tool companies can use to make it simple for consumers to connect with their brand.
Examples of this type of engagement are:
Outdoor Durable decals with printed QR codes provide extended life to encoded content for products that must be used in extreme environments. Unlike 1D codes that must have the complete barcode in a linear line for it to be read, QR Codes can still function with partial tears or obscured areas due to debris or stains. This make QR Codes a great choice to perform in these outdoor durable environments.
OUTDOOR DURABLE DECALS
QR Codes can deliver on-line content for consumer instructional and/or informational manuals that can be updated in real-time by the manufacturer, while always accessible by the consumer.
SAFETY & WARNING DECALS
The use of QR Codes provide manufactures options for extended messaging concerning safety warning, contact treatment and best practices to avoid any danger to consumers using their products.
QR Codes, as shown in the above picture of an Aluminum Nameplate, can provide variable data that is encoded telling a variety of information about the product such as:
