QR Code Design: Dos and Don’ts

We’ve got a whole post about QR code design best practices if you’re designing your own custom QR code. By creating QR codes that are totally optimized for clarity and quick scanning, your QR code templates won’t go to waste.

How to Make Your Own QR Codes

You've got the templates! How do you get the QR codes? It's easy. You can make a QR code for a PDF online, though that comes with a fair amount of built-in QR code risks. And you'll have to consider PDF accessibility. Ideally, you partner with a technology company that makes reliable, inexpensive, pre-formatted QR codes for you. Doing so takes almost everything off your plate besides supplying the raw information you want surfaced to your customers. Either way, read about how to find the best QR code generator.

Just remember, whatever you choose to do, to create a dynamic QR code. Not a static one. What QR codes are used for, typically, requires information be updated and edited on the fly, without having to create, print, and distribute a whole new code. We do it all the time with the country’s top restaurants’ digital menus. And we can help you do it with your digital menu, too.

QR code marketing is versatile. You can put these QR code design templates anywhere in your bar or restaurant. Doing so are the first—and arguably most important—steps to delivering the touchless restaurant experience that 2020 and beyond will inevitably develop.

The question is, will you lead the charge? If so, you can expect customers to respond in-kind, leading their own charge through your doors. They’ll fill up your dining room, and they’ll line up at your bar. All because they know a touchless menu means you take their health and safety seriously.

Paper, single use menus are almost inconceivably dirty. To the tune of 185,000 germs per square centimeter. That’s 16 times dirtier than pepper shakers, the 2nd dirtiest thing on restaurant tables. That’s why the National Restaurant Association now recommends discarding paper menus after every use. The industry, as a whole, is leaning toward menu technologies like menu apps and QR code menus to go touchless. 

One of the easiest, most effective ways to work toward a germ-free dining experience is to use QR codes. By leveraging a QR menu, you’ll be rid of the single dirtiest thing on restaurant tables: paper menus.
