Barcode Infomation
A Barcode is a method of representing data in a form that can be read by a laser.The original barcode or 1D barcode represented data by varying the widths and spacing of parallel lines. Where as the the later 2D barcode is made up using rectangles, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns, called matrix codes, although they do not use bars as such. The data is then read by a laser and can be interpritated by a machine to relay infomation to the user.

QR-Code Infomation
QR-Codes or Quick Responce Codes are machine readable codes consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs (website addresses) or other infomation for reading by a camera on a smartphone. The advantage of a QR-Code over a traditional barcode is that it can store a hundred times more infomation. They can also be scanned from 360 degree angles which makes it easier for a device to read and lessons the possiblity of background interference.

Some of the many uses for Barcodes and QR-Codes:

  • Store important saftey infomation or tutorials

  • Store you business card infomation and contact details
  • Direct a customer to a URL for your website, facebook, twitter or other social media.(QR-Codes only)
