Learn how to create, design, and use QR codes for business and marketing.

Create a simpler experience for the people who interact with your brand.

Although QR codes have been around since the Denso Wave company began using them to track the manufacturing process for their vehicles back in 1994, modern QR codes didn’t come into the mainstream until 2011 when Best Buy and Macy’s began using them in-store.

QR codes are being scanned by millions of smartphone users worldwide due to a few factors. Primarily, the rise of QR code usage stands hand in hand with the rise in smartphones and access to high-speed internet. With 3.8 billion people projected to use smartphones and 90% of the population estimated to have access to high-speed internet in 2021, the growing popularity of QR codes is not slowing down anytime soon.

With that in mind, this guide will cover how to get started with your first foray into creating QR codes.
