The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

How To Create Your Customized QR Code Images

I've seen many posts about QR codes, here's one on how to Customize yours and make it different than others.

The QR Code was just one of the hot topics at NAR in New Orleans this year.  Out of the hundreds of cards we received for the iPad drawing, there were only 3 business cards that had the QR Code (bar-code) on them.  To be honest, I don't like the way they look but they do work well and the technology is impressive.

This weekend, I added my QR code to my Facebook page and had a couple friends call me to confirm it actually worked.  They just pointed their phone and QR reader at the screen and I was instantly added to their contacts in their phone.  I also added it to my sidebar on ActiveRain to see how it looked and a few members "point and shot" it adding me to their contacts on their phones too.

Here's the quickest and easiest way to create a QR code of your own, and add a little custom color and splash to make it unique and stand out from all the others.  I'll walk you through it step-by-step. 

Step 1:  You'll need to create a QR Code.  QR codes can be created to either link back to a desired website, Blog, or Internet page, or they can be used like a business card, much like the one I've created here on my AR sidebar.

There are many QR code generators out there, some of them work right from your phone. I use the iPhone so Optiscan (scanner and generator) and i-nigma-4  (just a reader) are my two favs.   If you want to create a code using your computer and have it link to a specific URL instead of your Business/Personal contact info, I recommend goo.gl which also provides some tracking and analytics tools.

Step 2: Next, you need to capture the QR code image as a graphic.  On a PC, you'll need to get a screen shot of it "Shift+Print Scr" and then use a cropping tool to capture just the QR code image.  On a MAC, just hold down the "shift+command+4" to select area with mouse and capture it as an image.  Use any screen capture tool or application you like to do this.

Here's 50 million FREE Screen Capture Apps and Sites according to Google.

Step 3: Since many of you might not have a graphics editing software like Photoshop or Paintshop Pro, we'll use Picnik.com, a free online graphics editing tool that's easy and free to use.

Step 4: Upload your saved QR Code image to Picnik.com

Step 5: Add a white border to the image.

Step 6: Optional - Add a drop shadow to lift your image off the page.

Step 7: Create your desired colored text and font, resize it, then add to the white border areas of your image.
            (you can also add small images and other graphics to the border in this step)

Step 8: Save your image back to your desktop as a .jpg file.

Step 9: Test your Final QR code image design to make sure it's working properly.


(Before)                                            (After)

Step 10: Now Add your NEW Customized QR code to everything you can imagine.

Examples: Business cards, websites, blogs, social media sites, signs, flyer's, coffee cups, marketing supplies, the promo magnet on your car door, your company polo shirt on the chest or sleeves, heck... go out and get a hand stamp made, then go around the world patting everyone on the back so your QR code shows up everywhere. lol~ Well, maybe not to that extent, but you get the point.

These little buggahs will either stick as the newest and greatest thing, or they will die hard like the pet rock. Until then, I'd say take advantage of the technology and use it to the best of your ability.  Hopefully this post will make it easier for you to make YOUR QR Code stand out a little more than your competitors. Have fun with it and be sure to point your QR reader at mine above, I'd be pretty embarrassed if it didn't work!  :-O

Here's a video tutorial I put together for those who'd rather have these steps visually.

Oh, and if you have your QR Code(s) already, feel free to add it with your comment below.

Brad, I don't have a problem generating url QR codes, but am not sure how to generate one like yours to add to contacts.  That one makes a lot of sense to me for putting on the websites (sigs etc).  Not like some are doing adding a QR code to their web url's...  online.

Another Newly FEATURED Post in ActiveRain Group QR Codes!

Posted by Mike Jaquish, 919-880-2769 Cary, NC, Real Estate (Realty Arts) almost 10 years ago

Lee and Pamela - I used the Optiscan app on my iPhone for that one, it lets you select your contact info or anyone else's contact info in your phone and then creates the QR code in a single touch.  It also allows you to create one for URL's but what I really like is that it allows you to create a simple note or message like a post-it.  The QR code now becomes a letter or scrambled message until someone scans it. 

Here's a note I wrote to you:

Posted by Petra Norris, Realtor, Lakeland FL Homes for Sale (Lakeland Real Estate Group, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

Hi Brad ~ Finally a blog post that gives me an incentive to try this QR code thing. I don't have loads of listings so haven't really seen the point up to now of adding yet another learning session to my already long list of things to do. I also haven't seen why I would need one of those not so pretty black boxes on my website or blog. Your post actually gives me a reason to put it on there. Not only that, you've also prettied it up, so it's not quite the eyesore it was AND acts as a QR Code for dummies (like me) who hadn't really thought of scanning contact info directly from the computer screen. Nice one. It all makes sense now!

Brad,

QR codes are on my "do before year end" list and you've just saved my bacon!  Thanks.

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) almost 10 years ago

Customizing them is a great idea. BTW I tried to scan your side one with the contact info and it didn't work with my reader. Is it a different download or a different reader for the contact instead of the website viewer. The website one worked. Thanks for the ease of tutorial.

If the blackberry QR code experience doesn't get better, "pet rock" comes to mind. Fortunately for QR codes to have a chance to survive there are plenty of iPhones and androids out there where it probably works a whole lot better! I crashed my BB twice (can you say battery pull) this morning trying to read your codes. I like the idea of having your contact info in a code that you could scan easily into your address book. That would be cool! I also just wrote about QR codes and using goo.gl to create SMALL codes. I really like what you did in Picnik. The video was very nice. Thanks for your post!

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 10 years ago

Hi Brad - With Barcode Scanner I can read all of the codes on your page except the one in comment #6. Is that a code for 'Proxy Error?' Should there be any minimum spacing between the code and any customizing?

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) almost 10 years ago

Hi Dawn - you can use goo.gl to create a code to any URL or web address.  I'm sure there are others being developed that will take us way beyond the URL linking capabilities.  I know paypal now uses this technology to receipt and bill people wanting to make online purchases. 

The Optiscan version I have on my iPhone allows you to create a contact, URL, or even a note QR code.  I'm sure this will be available via computer apps and sites soon if it's not already.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 10 years ago

Petra - the image needs to be saved and stored out on the web on a server somewhere.  Here's a secret: Create a "draft" AR Blog post with the image uploaded to that blog post. Save the "draft" and now right click on the image to "Copy Link URL" and this allows you to add the image to your sidebar.  The trick is to use the HTML coding below in the Blog Description Box on your settings page.  It will look like this.

Damon - I think there will be some readers and QR generators that will have to work out some technical kinks.  In time, they will all be universal and probably all work on any QR codes.  I just tried them both with my iPhone and they both worked ok. Sorry about that. :-)

Craig - sorry for the crackberry crash, I know it's not funny but reading your comment somehow added a fraction of humor and I caught myself chuckling.  They'll get it right, I'm almost certain.

Brad - after morning of testing - BeeTagg Reader for BB has worked better than the others I've tested - anybody else want to try? Handled different types of reads: URL, email, vcard to address book (love that last one) More complex codes took several shots to get a read. Simpler codes first shot every time.

Posted by marti garaughty, a highly caffeinated creative type... (garaughty.com) almost 10 years ago

Brad - sorry to keep pinging this post - but another 2 cents from Craig... your contact card QR code is very dense and I cannot get a read on it. I've done tests of more complex codes and can get reads pretty easily with codes that have up to 6 internal alignment squares (whatever they are technically called) My recommendation for people making vcards of QR codes is not to put everything in the world on the vcard but just the essentials and then you'll have a QR code not too dense and many not able to read.

Posted by Craig Daniels, Technology Instructor/Project Consultant (Tech Training for You!) almost 10 years ago

Great seeing you at the RainCamp reception in New Orleans. We had some fun playing with the QR codes that night.

Very interesting post Brad! Its no surprise that QR codes were a buzz at NAR this year. They are being used everywhere. We use them to increase ROI on our postcards, newsletters and business cards that we use for Realtors ~ IF you know how to utilize the codes to add value to the piece, it's easy to see their true value.

For example, a postcard that would only be good for showing one or possibly three properties, can become a link to the full list of properties that a Realtor is showing, and we update the links every Monday for 4 weeks! This gives a person all the more reason to hold onto the postcard and view the additional content as it changes.

We use the Scanlife application to create our codes, but any QR code generator will work.

Posted by Karen Crowson, Your Agent for Change (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) almost 10 years ago
For BB users...the BB Messenger already has a QR code reader built into it. Open BBM and hit the menu key and scroll down. I'm having mixed results using it though. It turns the flash light on and causes a horrible glare for use on a laptop screen. Simple codes like a URL are fine. More complicated codes such as a contact are hit-or-miss so far. Maybe other reading software will work better. Thanks Brad.

Thanks Brad.  I just downloaded and installed "beetag" on my BB curve but when I try to run it I get an error msg "software version not found".  This is the only reader that is supposed to work on my phone.  I've about had it with BB.  I think I see an Android in my future.

Am I the only one using Microsoft tags? tag.microsoft.com Far superior and more customizable than plain old QR in my opinion. I have then on my cards, sign riders and will put them in my print advertising as well. As for customization... I can make a tag look like a butterfly if I want to.

Very frustrating. the only code I could get working on my BB was Tammy's. I have Bee Tagg and I know it works. I guess you just have to figure out where to place your phone on the code to make it work. I'm trying to figure out which form of code would work best for me. I checked out the tags at Microsoft too

Ah thanks Brad for the lovely holiday wishes!  AND you know I am indebted to you for all I've learned from you over the years here in the rain!!!  Loved our AR University courses ~ we had fun learning...  I did find a program for creating contact qr codes...  I like your iPhone app but am loving the Droid...

The QR code to the left is from Pingtags.com - they will allow you to create a QR code attached to your linkedIn profile

 

 

 

I also like myqr.co for making colored ones...

Posted by Michelle Minch, Home Staging Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA (Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA) almost 10 years ago

Michelle - it might just be a glitch in the reader. The two I am using on my iPhone both work but that isn't saying much.  Maybe because this is new technology or fairly new, there are still some bugs and glitches to be worked out by the mobile apps that create and read these little suckers.  Just a guess and my 2 cents.

Posted by Roland Woodworth, eXp Realty (eXp Realty) almost 10 years ago

Thanks, Brad, for the post, and to Roland for pointing me to it.  Below is a QR code to my website.

My contribution to this thread is that I think the vast majority of smartphone users don't know what the code is, so it is just as important to communicate to consumers what to do with the code, as it is to make it look pretty.  

This is my first pass at text around the borders, and I will make it prettier, but hopefully they will at least know what to do with the code, what app to use to do it with, and the fact that they should use their phone to do it.

Like, don't take the thing into Target and run it under the self scanner... seriously.  Scan me?  With what?  Uh, grocery store clerk, can you please scan this thing & tell me what it says?!  Why doesn't this thing work on my copier?  Scan me?  I tried it with my flatbed scanner & it didn't do a thing.  Oh, I should use my PHONE?  "Darn thing doesn't look at all like a bar code, I didn't even think to use my phone's bar code scanner."

Do you think there is value in being more descriptive about what to do with the code?

Brad, this totally solves a problem I encountered with keeping track of QR Code content.  I made a bunch of large QR Codes for my listings, to put on my lawn signs, linking the consumer to more info and photos of that listing.  I did not know you could put a border on them; I just accepted them "as is."  Well, I soon realized that a bunch of QR codes look too much alike and I was in danger of putting incorrect codes on a my signs.  This border would have solved the problem, and been much more visually appealing, too!

Hi Rebecca - there are many ways to create QR codes both from sites and from mobile apps. 

I'm sure there's a mobile app for the Droid that will work too.  You can create them individually to showcase a specific site, blog, or page or you can also combine information to be included in a single QR code, it's really all about preference. 

Let me know if you need some help.  Happy Holidays~
