About Our QR Codes

We do QR codes for a living and have been at the forefront of QR code technology since we started in late 2007.

We don't use the Google Charts API for QR Code generation - we've gone to the trouble of building and developing a custom ISO-compliant alogorithm - so we aren't bound by the data type, image size and resolution limits imposed by other sites that use somebody else's third-party generator as their back-end.

Batch Processing

Upload a single TSV file containing the details of up to 500 individual QR codes and process them as a single batch. Once processing has been completed a single ZIP file containing a image file for each of the QR codes in the batch can be downloaded or sent by email.

QR code image size, resolution, output file format (raster or vector) and colour can be specified for the QR codes in a batch. Batch processing directly supports our main data types and QR codes within a single batch can be mixed format.

Processing Large Batches
