Let’s dive into the details of how you can make a truly unique QR Code with logo -
Upload your brand’s logo to the QR Code. Square logos work best and you can increase or decrease the size of your logo using a slider. If you don’t have a logo, you can choose one that is closest to your intended action to let users know what they have to do once they scan the QR Code. For instance, if you want users to email you, use the email icon as your QR Code’s logo.
You can customize the QR Code with colors to align with your brand or specific campaign. Either have a mono colored QR Code or one with a horizontal or vertical gradient. You can also change the color of the individual elements i.e. the data patterns, eyeball, eye frame and the frame of the QR Code.
You can add a frame to your QR Code to elevate your custom design. Especially when the QR Code is surrounded by text and other visuals, a framed QR Code can help it stand out and improve conversions. There are different styles of frames you can choose from and modify the color to align with your branding.
In the QR Code’s frame, you can also add a custom Call to Action. From CTAs such as Scan Me or Scan to Win or Buy Now, you can modify the text to drive more conversions for your campaign.
Another cool way to custom design your QR Code is to add a background. You can either add a solid color to the QR Code or even an image in the background. For instance, if you want to make a personalized vCard QR Code, your profile picture in the background will help users instantly connect the dots.
