Barcodes for Mobile Applications (QR Codes)

  Simply Barcodes makes barcoding simple. Let us help you create a more dynamic customer experience. 2D Barcodes provide a reliable, permission-based, and easy way of using mobile technology to engage with customers. Many of our clients use the quick response or QR code, the most universal medium for mobile barcoding.

The three most common uses of mobile barcodes are:

    1. To open a link of a website
    2. To dial a telephone number
    3. To display a message

Our experienced and knowledgeable staff stands ready to answer your questions and do more than just sell you a barcode. We work with you to help your company successfully market your products and services.

What are 2D Barcodes?
  2D Barcodes, a simple black and white barcode pattern that companies print on magazines, poster, signs, business cards, coupons, labels and other media, allow access to information in a content rich digital environment.

How do 2D Barcodes work?
  2D Barcodes offer two common uses:

When a customer uses their camera phone to scan a code, the camera phone becomes a barcode scanner. The camera captures the 2D barcode image and a reader triggers an activity such as opening a mobile URL or placing a phone call.

When a customer presents a 2D barcode to claim a coupon or presents a pre-paid ticket to an event, a company representative with a 2D barcode scanner verifies authenticity by scanning the code.

I have never used 2D barcodes and want advice on how to implement this technology.
  The fact that the customer gives permission for you to market to them continues to be the most exciting aspect of mobile barcodes.
The following are important things for you to consider:
Plan before you implement mobile barcodes.
We encourage you to determine how to respond and how to engage customers over the long-term. Also, by demonstrating value and by offering financial benefits, entertainment or utility, you increase participation by potential and present customers.
Carefully consider the placement of your 2D barcode.
Prominently place your 2D barcode on a flat surface away from folds or other features that might obstruct scanning.
Simplify the process for your customers.
Explain how the code works and include information about how to download a reader.
Test your 2D barcode and decide how to track results.
Ensure that your code works by testing with a variety of camera-equipped mobile phones running a variety of mobile barcode scanning applications.

In what format are my 2D mobile barcodes created?
  For your convenience, we can create your 2D mobile barcode graphic in your choice of three different formats so that your graphic artist, printing company, or manufacturing facility can work with the graphic in their preferred software.
EPS Format - This layered, raster EPS file is the preferred format of most graphic designers due to its quality and versatility, particularly for resizing. EPS is an "exchange" format, not necessarily associated with one specific graphics program. An exchange format is one intended for multiple applications to be able to open.
TIFF Format - This layered TIFF file works well for graphic artists who need a transparent background. This format is not suitable for significant resizing.
JPEG Format - This uncompressed, high-quality JPEG file is the most common file format. All computers can open a JPEG. However, it is not suitable for resizing.

How do I get my 2D mobile barcodes on my product?
  Providing the barcode image to your graphic artist and including it in the design of your materials prior to printing is the easiest and most economical way of getting your 2D barcode on your product.

What size can/should a QR code be?
  The size of QR codes can vary considerably based on two factors: 1) how much information is encoded and 2) what the final application of the code is. We've seen made QR Codes that encode only a 5-digit product number printed at less than 1/3-inch squared. On the other extreme, we've seen QR Codes for use on highway billboards that were printed at about 4-foot squared.

Our clients' QR Codes, on average, come out to around 1 inch by 1 inch in size.
