Bringing Your A Game with QR Codes on Websites
The beauty of having a QR code on your website is that your CTA isn’t constrained by space or printing costs. It’s your website, so you can have a giant CTA if you want. Give visitors a reason to scan and they’ll scan.
Also, visitors are just more likely to scan a code with a logo in it. It instills trust with people.
We suggest using an icon logo that doesn’t contain any words, as this will keep your QR code recognizable no matter how small you print it (down to the minimum recommended size).
For beautiful branding purposes, there is even a step above a branded short URL: white label masking. This is where we hide uQR.me’s involvement and make it look like your code and your entire URL comes from your website. It turns branding up to 11.
Our recommendation for size is a minimum of 3 x 3 cm (1 x 1 in). One other great piece of advice is to make sure your code has strong contrast between the foreground and the background. The foreground should be a darker color.

In these difficult times, we stand by you.
