Scanova customer Victor Armendariz Records Manager Miami Beach

Scanova has helped secure our permit drawings and documents with the use of a custom password protected QR Code. This process has eliminated our laborious task of perforating our documents and thus, improving our efficiency with regards to the permitting process. I especially like the feature to track the scans and the ability to tie into Google Analytics. What impresses me the most is their quick response time for technical issues or questions.

We have just started working with Scanova and already we are delighted with the ease of use of the interface and the excellent customer service offered. The fact that we can add branding to the QR codes and that they are dynamic were essential aspects of us choosing to go with Scanova over other same service providers.

Scanova customer Nick Gomersall Fast Close

Scanova has helped FastClose to create an innovated marketing campaign. We designed a post card with the stamp being the barcode from Scanova. When scanned, this linked to a demo of our software. It worked really well and we are very happy with the result and Scanova’s technology.

5 expert strategies to double your scans

Boost your scans easily using these strategies

Simple qr code converted to custom designed logo qr code using scanova

Customize QR Code design

Your target audience can confuse plain black-and-white marketing QR Codes with non-customer-facing barcodes. Plus, a plain QR Code will mostly not align with the design of your marketing creative. Add design and branding elements to make your QR Code visually-appealing and attract 50-200% more scans than standard QR Codes.

Add a call-to-action

Inform your target audience about what the QR Code does. Some good examples of call-to-action (CTA) text are—Scan for Menu, Scan to Watch Tutorial, Scan to Donate, Scan to Read Full Article, and Follow on Instagram. Tip: You can add CTA text in the center of the QR Code if you are short of space.

Ensure scannability

Users can find it frustrating when a QR Code doesn't respond. Scannability depends on size, color contrast, scanning distance, and lighting.

  1. The minimum size of a QR Code should be 1 inch or 3 cm or 115 pixels (both width and height).
  2. In case of colored QR Codes, it’s best to opt for high-contrast between foreground and background colors.
  3. Always maintain a ratio close to 10:1—if a QR Code is to be scanned from 100 cm away, it must be at least 10 cm wide.
  4. Ensure good lighting conditions around the QR Code for successful QR Code reading.

Tip: Use Dynamic QR Codes that shorten lengthy URLs to simplify the code.

Make it accessible

To make your QR Code accessible, you need to ensure both safe scanning distance and easy access to mobile internet. Placing QR Codes on moving vehicles, distant billboards, or the bottom section of print material can reduce accessibility. Limited network/Wifi areas, like flight or underground stations, can also affect scans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to popular questions about QR Codes and QR Code Generators

What is a QR Code?

A QR Code is a 2D barcode that is encoded with information and can be decoded using a QR Code scanning app on a smartphone. Most smartphones are now equipped with a QR Code scanning feature or app and hence, QR Codes are now popularly used in marketing, payments, and authentication use cases.

What types of QR Codes can Scanova generate?

Is a special app required to scan the QR Codes generated by Scanova?

No. Scanova QR Code Maker follows the QR Code open standard even with custom QRs. This ensures that the QR Code can be scanned using any generic QR Code scanning app or default QR Code scanning feature, which is now available in most smartphones including iPhones and Android-based smartphones.
