QR Codes


A QR Code stands for Quick Response, you might have seen them popping up in stores and magazines.  I saw this one in Michael’s.  A QR Code is a barcode that is read by mobile phones that have downloaded a reader app.  The QR code actually started as a way to quickly track automotive parts but has spread in popularity because of the quick way it can share a lot of information.  They are in common use in Japan and Europe and are now taking hold in the USA.  Our goal at Howard Alan Events is to have every artist hang a laminated card in their booth with their QR code posted so patrons with smart phones can have your website with the click of their phone.  Business cards and flyers can get lost but with the QR reader you are now on their phone, they can find you when they are ready to purchase a piece.  It is very easy to get a code, go to this website, www.qrstuff.com, enter your website address and click download.  You can then print out your code, it will look like this.

As always if you have any questions or need help getting a QR code  email us at info@artfestival.com.
