A QR Code is essentially a 2d bar code in the form of a matrix. Like any other bar code, a QR can store any type of information. This type of bar code was actually developed by Denso-Wave, a Toyota subsidiary, with the purpose of reading contents at high speeds; hence Quick Response Code. The easiest way to generate a QR Code is through an application; there are several available for free. When you use a QR Code Generator, the only information you require is the URL, text message, or the phone number you want to embed into the code. Then automatically the QR Code Generator will sort the information into a 2d matrix.
When you generate your code you’ll realize that there are some squares that just remain the same. The three big boxes at the top right, top left and bottom left corner are patterns that identify the QR Code. While the smaller square at the bottom right corner is an alignment pattern that is used to correct skew. This is quite practical, especially when you scan the code at a slight angle. Everything that is contained within these four boxes is the information you are trying to embed.
YPrintIt.com application allows you to generate QR Codes with any type of information. When you use a smart phone to read the generated QR Code; the code will redirect you to a URL that holds whatever information a person wants you to see. However, the YPrintIt.com application automatically converts the 2d matrix into readily available digital information. This is particularly fabulous for business cards because any prospect who scans the QR Code will automatically receive a digital form of the business card without being redirected to another website. Furthermore, your client will be able to store this business card in the form of a virtual rolodex.
