QR Code in Business Cards

Postby Crystal Printer Solutions on Sat Dec 10, 2011 6:59 pm

I need to create QR Codes to print on business cards for a real estate agent. I already downloaded your software QR Code Fonts & Encoder 5. How do I put information to create such a barcode using your GUI encoder?

Have you visited QR Common usage page? If not I recommended you read it once.

The widely accepted data format for contact info is MECARD, which was invented by a Japanese company DOCOMO. Barcode readers on Apple Iphone and Andriod are able to read QRCode with this format. You will need to assemble the data into a string. Then you can use our encoder to create QR codes.

For example, to encode the following contact info:

Name: Jenifer Smith
Address: 1 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 205, Los Angeles, CA 90001
Phone: (626) 123-4567
Email: jenifer@example.com,
Company: Smith Reality

You put

Code: Select all
MECARD:N:Smith,Jenifer;SOUND:Smith Reality;ADR:1 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 205, Los Angeles,CA 90001;TEL:+16261234567;EMAIL:jenifer@example.com;;

The string must start with MECARD: and end with ;. Each field start with a field name, followed by colon: and ends by semicolon. Subfields are separated by comma.

The whole string must be in a single line - there is no line return in the string.

Here, N => name; SOUND=> company; ADR=> address; TEL=> telephone ...

Docomo has a more detailed explanation here.

If you are using trial version of QR Code Fonts & Encoder 5, you got DEMO appended at the end. You can test on our free QR Code Maker instead.
