Need to create QR codes for your website, phone, SMS, location, WiFi, event, or whatever? Check out this free website!
My fun disclaimer
I discovered this site that creates free QR codes that works quickly, easily, and effectively. No, I have nothing to do with the QR code website. I don’t know anyone there, and am not sleeping with anyone from the company.
Enter the monkey
The QR Code Monkey, to be exact. I tried one or two others, and they either required me to sign up or were more complicated. This website, on the other hand, had everything laid out logically. Furthermore, I could choose from a number of different designs and shapes.
I had done a little bit of poking around before finding this site which does this easily for numerous kinds of content. Even better, it allows you to place your logo within the QR code if you wish! People can hold the cameras of their phones up to this code, press the prompt, and are immediately whisked to my website … or all sorts of other contents.
Let’s go over the four easy steps to QR Code glory.
Step 1: Enter content
You’ll need to select the tabs that say “URL,” “Text,” and so forth. Then enter your website or email or other information that you wish people to have.
Step 2: Set colors
What color do you want your colors to be? I went with black, the default color. I like the QR code to have a lot of contrast in the hopes that the camera phone will pick it up a little easier in dark areas. As always, your mileage may vary.
Step 3: Add logo image
This is where you can personalize the appearance by adding your logo in the center of the code.
Step 4: Customize design
This is probably the area where you will spend the most time. The changes are almost instantaneous. I found that the Body Shape that was third from the left seemed to look the best for my logo, so I went with it. I decided to go with a simple square Eye Frame Shape. But you certainly could have a lot of fun trying to design your QR code.
After that, you simply select the quality of the image that you want to have, and press the blue button that says “Download PNG.” That’s it!
