My new QR Code!


QR code, I hear you ask!  What’s that then?


QR or Quick Response Codes have been around since 1994 and were originally used to track parts during car manufacture. It is likely you have seen one, even if you didn’t know what it was, usually displayed as black and white squares in a grid pattern reminiscent of a crossword. Essentially QR Codes are a barcode capable of holding significantly more information (thousands of characters as opposed to tens).

Around October 2010 they became a popular tool to quickly link smartphone users through to web pages, provided the phone had a relevant reader installed. Creating your own code is fairly simple with a myriad of free to use generators available, though initially the various options can be slightly overwhelming.”

So, it’s a bit like a barcode that you can scan with your smartphone (iphone, android etc) My QR code allows you to sign up to my mailing list at the scan of your phone. 

So if you want to sign up to my mailing list my QR code can be see below or on the right hand side of this blog.  Give it a go…..


If you want to read more about the QR code you can do so here on Wikipedia.

Thanks for signing up.
