Creating a QR code

I have been seeing these new QR codes all over lately and was curious how they worked until I read a great blog post on The Beading Gem's Journal.  I love how she did a lot of research on the various types and explained how to create and utilize one.  If you have a scanner app on your smart phone, it is a quick and convenient way to find a website or even a particular item without having to do all the google search or web browsing.

Here is the QR code I created for our website using the Skanz site. I also downloaded the scanner to my smart phone and it works like a charm.  Since we make our own business cards we just added it to the back and also plan to place it on our sign when we are selling at shows.

At Present QR Codes are short cut to website. A simple scan with a smartphone, with a QR Code reader application on board, in most cases is much faster than typing in a web address on a cell phone keypad. QR codes hold promise of facilitating numerous services and make things easier for users.
