QR CodeA QR code or Quick Response code is a special type of 2-dimensional barcode that can be read by certain dedicated QR readers and/or smart phones. QR codes are squares that are typically constructed using a pattern of prearranged black pixels that can be displayed on a white or light background. The information that can be stored on a QR code may be text, contact information, website information, or other data. In recent years, QR codes have become a popular way for newspapers and magazines to give their readers immediate access to online content. Individuals and businesses can generate their own QR codes for others to scan by using one of the many free QR generators that can be found online. Our favorite is located at qrstuff.com.
