Press release from: CardsMadeEasy

London, UK (17 May 2011) – CardsMadeEasy, a UK-based online business card printing company, have launched a free QR coding service that is available to all customers purchasing any of their printed products.

A QR (quick response) code is a specific matrix code that can be picked up by some smartphone’s built-in cameras. The code consists of black symbols arranged into a square pattern on a white background, in which data such as text or a URL can be stored and detected by a scanning application on the phone. Smartphone users can scan QR codes and instantly view the webpage or special offer it contains.

QR codes were created in Japan in 1994 and have been popular in East Asian countries, such as South Korea, ever since. There was a slower uptake of the technology in the West up until recently, with more and more western companies now using QR codes as a way to engage with customers quickly and more easily.

“It seems as though QR codes are popping up everywhere right now, with businesses using them as a portal between hardcopy and the web,” commented Neil Forrest for CardsMadeEasy. “We are able to create and add QR codes to any of our printed products free of charge as part of a new order; all customers have to do is tell us the URL or special offer they want to use. It’s that simple.”

For more information about CardsMadeEasy and their extensive range of business printing services, and to request a free sample pack, visit or call 0845 166 4478.
