  • Benefits of using QR Code on Art

  • QR codes can actively accompany all events of the city's artistic life. It is especially true today, as we are overloaded with information about exhibitions, premieres, events, etc. But more important is the ability of QR codes to provide information about the history and context of art creation. So, QR codes are appropriate in street art and galleries for exciting tours, advertising, and sales. They popularize, attract the audience, and become part of the art space.

    QR codes popularize the work of artists

    It is especially relevant for young artists, writers, and artists. They can add QR codes to their artworks. Such QR codes will link to their bio, portfolio, or social media pages. It allows viewers to learn more about the artist and potentially become a fan or customers.

    QR codes provide additional context

    Noisy excursions are not liked by everyone. A stroll through the gallery and thoughtful contemplation of the artworks is what many visitors choose. And for them, QR codes are simply irreplaceable. They provide additional context, such as the history, inspiration, or artwork meaning. It can help viewers appreciate the artwork on a deeper level.

    QR codes make it easy to sell artwork

    Artists often sell their work in art galleries. So by adding a QR code, they can offer their visitors shopping options. For example, such a QR code can immediately directs a potential buyer to a website or online store.

    QR codes help create an interactive experience

    We can also use QR codes to create an interactive experience with the artwork. It is the best role of QR codes to promote art among children. For example, you could create a quiz that requires viewers to scan QR codes on different art to find a hidden message or solve a puzzle. Or bring visitors inside the artwork thanks to an augmented reality QR code. Thanks to QR codes, artworks overcome the boundaries between real and virtual.

  • QR Codes on Art and other materials: Best Practice

  • QR codes are a universal tool for presenting your brand and business. But you can make even a minor mistake in the design, and all your efforts will be in vain. Don't repeat mistakes! Pursue our tips on using QR codes in promotional materials and make them more expressive and potent.

    Add a brief description to your QR code

    Why would anyone even scan your QR code? You lose if you have no answer to this question. A QR code without instructions does not carry any value or information to the user. So be sure to print out the QR code with instructions on what your client or partner will learn from the scan.

    Use informative frames for the QR code

    The users are almost ready to scan the QR code. Just help them! Frames tell your audience about your QR code. Does your QR code lead to your store's Instagram? Add a “Follow Me” call-to-action box. 

    Add your logo to your QR code

    You must do it. A company logo on a QR code helps users recognize and trust you. The L2QR builder automatically determines the optimal size for your logos, ensuring the scanning of QR codes.

    Remember the contrast

    However, the QR code should always be visible on a light or dark background. Consistent contrast is the key to fast reading. Use a white box or frame for guaranteed QR code scanning.

    Integrate the QR code into your design

    Isn't it enough to just put a QR code on art? Sorry, but no. When a QR code looks like a random element, it gives every reason to believe that you are not being responsible enough with your presentation. Therefore, create promotional materials where the QR code is an organic part of their design.

    Save and recreate your signature design

    L2QR ensures that all QR codes you create are available as templates at any time. You can use them for any promotional materials or events.

    Check the QR code scan before printing 

    You need to make sure that your QR code scans perfectly. Test it thoroughly on different devices and apps. Make sure every user can scan your QR code and that it's functional.
