How to Use (and Create) a QR Code

Have you ever seen a square code like this one online or at one of the businesses you frequent?

Ever wondered what it is?

This is the QR code for Penny/Ohlmann/Neiman. QR codes are gaining popularity as smartphones become a ubiquitous part of our everyday lives.

For those who don’t know, a QR code is a little bit like a bar code, meant to be read by your smartphone. The QR code contains visual representations of information like, say, a website or phone number. Instead of painstakingly typing in a website on your smartphone or dialing a number, you can simply scan the code and it will automatically direct your phone’s browser to that site or call that phone number.

It could also take you to a fun application or contest entry site, and is great for posting outside physical locations to direct people to more information about you, your business, or your latest marketing initiative.

We’ve talked about QR codes before, but never shown you how to create your own. Surely creating your own QR code must be a difficult thing to do, right?

Not at all. You can start playing around with creating your own QR codes by visiting

Have fun!
