Printing QR Codes

Before you start printing your QR codes, it's important to have all the materials ready. You'll need a good printer and the right supplies at the most basic level. Most people use regular inkjet or laser printers to print paper-based QR codes. Can you print a QR code on vinyl, plastic, or metal? Absolutely, you can print a QR code on almost anything, but for that, you may want to use a specialized printer. Also, be sure to have access to software or online generators like 7ID App, that can help you create and design your QR code before you print it.

When it comes to printing QR codes, there are two main options: digital and physical:

It really depends on what you need your QR code for and how flexible you need it to be.

When printing a QR code, always go for the highest resolution you can. At least 300 dpi is recommended for clear, crisp prints. Also, make sure there's a good contrast between the QR code and the background, and avoid resizing it in a way that makes it blurry or distorted, as this may affect its scalability.

If your QR code will be used outdoors or subject to a lot of wear and tear, it's important to consider its durability. To greatly extend the life of paper-printed QR codes, you can laminate them or use weather-resistant materials like vinyl. Also, UV-resistant inks can prevent fading over time, so your QR code will be readable for as long as needed.

Finally, the size of your printed QR code plays a critical role in its visibility and scannability. Basically, the scan distance should be ten times the QR code size. But be sure to make it at least 2×2 cm or 1×1 inch, because smaller sizes can cause problems with some smartphones.

Testing and Verifying QR Codes After Printing

Once your QR codes are printed, testing and verifying them is a critical step not to be overlooked. This ensures the codes are scannable and redirect to their intended digital destinations.

Use different smartphones and QR code scanning apps, and test under different lighting conditions and angles. This variety in testing helps identify potential issues that could prevent users from accessing the content. If a QR code does not scan properly, consider checking print quality, size, and contrast to identify and resolve the issue.
