Create a QR code with your contact info
Authored by: QRStuff on Dec 14, '12 03:27:47PM
@robleach and @kirkmc - Thanks for posting this hint and mentioning! - Linking to a vcard landing page is completely optional and users can freely elect to embed their contact details directly into the QR code instead if they wish by selecting the "Embed VCARD data in QR code as-is" option below the data input area. This will give the user experience mentioned by @robleach and about 40% of the 350,000 monthly users of elect to use this option when creating their vCard QR codes. I'd point out however that since a QR code is the graphical representation of the data it contains, linking to a landing page is the only way to make the QR code "dynamic" so that the contact details can be subsequently edited by the QR code owner, and this is an attractive feature for many users. This blog post explains static vs dynamic QR codes and how they work.
