|Hello! I am a QR Code.|
The way it works is that you scan the code with your device and it can do all kinds of things, like take you to a website or send you a coupon code. You can even do things a little outside of the box. For a gallery exhibition, I created a piece of embroidered art that had the QR code as part of the design. If you scanned the embroidered piece itself, the QR code would send you to a blog page that was a journal documenting the piece, showing all the steps of making and embroidering it.
Some ways you might want to use QR codes: The QR code above links you to my etsy shop. The one below brings up a message that gives you an example of free shipping coupon code. I can save these QR images and print them on my business cards, put stickers on my packaging, or print them on flyers or postcards that I hand out. You could even go crazy and print one as a door magnet on your car or wear it as a brooch - anywhere you think someone might scan it.
