QR codes are becoming more and more ubiquitous as a simple and quick way of disseminating small pieces of information. TEC-IT QR-Code Studio is a versatile free tool that helps you generate QR codes with all types of contents, from URLs to vCards, from SMS messages to e-mails, and from messages designed for Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to SEPA bank transactions.
QR codes are matrix barcodes with a capacity of up to 7,000 numeric characters, 4,300 alphanumeric characters, and around 3,000 binary characters. URLs, business cards, SMS messages, e-mails, tweets, product information, bank accounts, etc., can be easily transmitted to your smart phone using a QR code. QR-Code Studio comes with all the features you require to produce these “2D barcodes” and make them available to users or printing houses in high-quality, high-resolution graphic formats. Thus, the resulting code can be saved as a TIFF, BMP, or JPG file, with different levels of opacity, different sizes and colors, and in any of the most common character codes, making them suitable for a whole range of requirements.
Inputting the desired content to create the QR code is easy with the program’s Data Input Assistant. It opens in a new window and offers you more than 20 templates that cover all the possibilities. Raw Data is probably the most common category – here is where you put any unformatted text message you wish to share using a QR code. You will also find specific categories for URLs, vCard and MeCard Business cards, phone numbers, SMS and e-mail messages, e-mail address, vCalendar events, Wi-Fi access points, tweets, Facebook likes, LinkedIn user profiles, or IBAN+BIC account numbers for bank payments. The list is not exhaustive, but it gives you an idea of both the many uses of QR codes and the flexibility and versatility of this tool.
Once generated, QR codes can be easily customized. You can change the dimensions, the opacity/transparency levels, the colors, adjust the quiet zones, the resolution, and add captions to it when required.
TEC-IT QR-Code Studio is a full-featured free tool (for home and non-commercial use) for everyone to create high-quality QR codes in just a few steps. Equally flexible and easy to use, it will surely cover all your QR creation requirements and needs.
