QR Codes

QR codes are a quick and easy way for your audience to access online resources without having to type in an address.  Simply scan and go!

To create a QR code:

  1. Go to QR Code Generator
  2. Copy and paste the URL of your resources into the box
  3. Click "Create QR Code"
  4. Your unique QR code will appear on the right of screen
  5. Click "Download jpg"
  6. Insert the downloaded QR code image into your flyer


To read a QR code:

There are many free apps and online services which are able to scan a QR code and re-direct the user to a chosen resource e.g. QR Scanner, QR Code Reader and more.

Devices using iOS 11 automatically read QR codes through the camera (no separate app required) - a pop-up appears asking if you want to open the linked content.  Similar functionality is also available on some Android devices.
