What is a QR code?
QR code (or Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached.

Why use a Code?
They are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including url links, geo co-ordinates, and text. The other key feature of QR Codes is that instead of requiring a chunky hand-held scanner to scan them, many modern cell phones can scan them. Make sure to scan QR codes from trustworthy sources.

On a headstone, the QR code is etched onto a small piece of granite or metal square before being embedded or glued on to a gravestone. OR it can be sandblasted directly into the headstone.

How do you use a QR code?
IOS11 (iPhones) now can scan QRCodes using your camera. Otherwise, there’s other free apps that can read QR codes (we like Barcode Reader or Google Goggles in the Android Market).

Can I make one myself?
You can generate free QRCodes but here is my question to you: If something goes wrong and it’s for your grandmother’s headstone, would you know what happened and how to fix it? Free QRCodes also display popup ads you won’t be able to take down.

Will my QR code “expire”?
No. The QR codes and any underlying short URL’s, however temporary monthly scan limits may apply, depending if the QR Code provider has given you a “Free non-subscribed, non-registered seller” QR code.

Are your QR codes from a trustworthy source and are there any limits on use?
The short answer is Yes. These limits only apply to dynamic QR codes that use our (optional) URL shortener – QR codes that do not use our URL shortener (static QR codes) have no scan limits.

Today QR Codes have a number of purposes, including transport ticketing, entertainment, commercial tracking, and product labelling/marketing, just to name a few. You can find QR codes being used to:

  • send audiences to a website for browsing
  • bookmark a webpage
  • initiate phone calls
  • send short messages
  • send emails
  • access information
  • get coupons
  • view videos, slideshows or images
  • purchase items
  • process orders
  • advertise products, etc.

vCard is the abbreviation for Virtual Business Card and is the standard format (.vcf files) for electronic business cards. vCards allow you to create and share contact information over the internet, such as in email messages and instant messaging.

QR your events: Use a QR code on event materials that leads to a virtual version of your event packet and allows attendees to travel light. Include an e-ticket, travel directions, map, handouts and any other relevant information your guests may need.
