Always bit.ly your urls (or other shorteners) for QR codes so the QR data looks less compact.

Two reasons: Visually it looks more pleasant, and secondly the camera taking the QR code as input will have less chance of failing reading the data.

That is all :)

Really helpful, after adding some information besides the URL in the QR code this is somehow can reduce the QR complexity. Thanks :)

That’s a good tip! I’ve also noticed that QR codes are pretty incosistent for complex URLs … “keep it simple stupid ” :)

Cheers

Chris

Another tip for QR codes. Always make dark code on light background, never vice versa. If you make black background and white code then code will not work!

I think not everyone knows that as I saw couple business cards with this mistake here on GraphicRiver.
