Why Businesses Choose QR Code Banners
QR (quick response) codes are an immensely popular way for businesses to instantly capture mobile customers and audiences. Using their camera functions, iOS and Android devices can automatically scan QR codes on banners—no extra app is needed.
QR codes are ideal for creating a deeper relationship with your customers. They are preferred for business outreach because QR codes are:
- Easy for businesses to deploy
- Fast & simple for customers to access
- Able to create a real-time digital connection with customers
- Perfect for driving offline audience engagement & curiosity
Adding a QR code to your banners opens up entirely new opportunities to connect with customers. Engage in real-time and meet audiences where they want to be found: mobile, online, and on-the-go.
QR Code Banner Design & Printing Tips
Printastic has printed thousands of QR code banners for businesses around the United States. Here are some insights we've learned along the way:
Generating QR codes
QR code technology is largely open domain and there are numerous free-to-use online QR code generators. These can generate the necessary code for us to print on your banner to link to the URL, video, podcast, phone number, or coordinates of your choice.
QR code shape & color
When designing a QR code on a banner, size and legibility are much more important to success than modifying the shape or color scheme. QR codes are instantly identifiable (and faster to interact with) because of their traditional square shape and black color.
While it might seem appealing to modify the shape or colors to match your branding, it's typically not worth potentially confusing customers or creating a QR code that is difficult for all devices to recognize. We believe sticking with QR codes in their traditional shape and color on your banner is ideal to convert scans.
QR code size
Studies reveal for a QR code to be successfully scanned at 12 feet away, it should be at least 19 inches in size. To maximize customers' engagement while using their devices to interact with your banners, we recommend a QR code size of at least two-feet square on your banner. Building-mounted extra large banners with an appropriately large QR code can even be scanned by customers at ground level.
Advanced data capabilities
QR codes allow you to derive value from digital tracking and metrics. By using different QR codes for different banners and campaigns based on location, you can track engagement by the individual banner or location. Businesses are using this capability to drive digital transformation that provides opportunities for continuous improvement and sustained value.
Part of the appeal of QR codes is that they are a little bit of a mystery waiting to be unraveled. Curiosity is a powerful motivator and if you can make the payoff interesting or valuable, you can create a meaningful connection with your customers.
