  • Custom QR Codes

    Posted August 13, 2012 By in Photographers SEO With | 1 Comment

    Here at Badges Patches we like to keep up with the ever changing technology, and understand that now mobile marketing is becoming a big part of the market. This is where QR codes come into it. But who wants a boring black one, when you can have your own custom QR Code.

    Just in case you don’t know, we’ll briefly explain what a QR code is, and how it can be used to help your business. A QR code is a square image, that has lots of weird shapes in it. When scanned by a compatable mobile phone, the code tells the mobile to do something. That may be to visit a website, call a phone number, get ready to send an email to an address enter, give you a money of voucher, the list is long and extensive as to what a QR code can do.
    The code needs to be scanned by a mobile phone, that has one of the many QR code reader apps installed. As these codes become more popular, more people are downloading the apps and know what these codes are all about.

    A plain QR Code

    This is a normal QR code.

    But, the problem with QR codes is that they are a bit……. well……. Boring. Almost all the QR codes you see are black, and may have some text round them saying ‘scan this’ or something similar. But they never get away from being black – until now!

    Badges Patches are pleased to announce that we have a method of making custom, funky, interesting, vibrant and enticing QR codes that will amaze your customers and encourage that scan to take place.

    Custom QR Code From Badges Patches

    Any colour is possible, and gradient, and almost any pattern.

    • Pick a colour, any colour and that can be your QR code colour! Darker colours do work best, but it gets away from the constant black.
    • Insert YOUR logo in the middle of it! Make that QR code truly yours by having your logo in there.
    • Have QR codes that link to all your social networks, with icons that people recognise and understand! Currently supported is Dribbble, Facebook, Facebook Like, FourSquare, Google Place, Google+, Linkedin, Pinterest, RSS, Twitter, Yelp and YouTube.
    • Stand out from your competitors, and have something on your business card that will be the first talking point when people take your business card!

Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!
