QR Question
Are they forever?

Hey Everyone,

We want to put a QR code on all our new product labels. If I use a free generator that links the qr code to our website product detail page, is that qr code forever? I don't want to pint it out on 1000's of labels and not have it last.

I was going to use [qrcode.kaywa.com...]

I guess I am asking if there is some database out there you have to register your qr code with.

Thanks!

the information is embedded within the QR code image... It's not linked to some site that redirects the viewer based on the QR Image... it's sort of like a barcode...

it stays the same no matter where you use it, or how you display it...

Print'em up! :)

It's only a problem if the URL in the QR code points to a third-party URL shortening service.

Two things:
1. I tried the same URL in two different QR code generators and got two distictly different QR codes. I wonder why?

2. QR codes may have a downside. Short URL's were hot, then get water thrown on them when the short URL's went to malicious sites. Like the URL shorteners, will QR codes be in the same boat? Or might that be QR codes unravelling?

On two of my personal social networking accounts I made my profile pic a working QR code which send people who scan it to my profile on the other social networking site.

Hah........... 2 School 4 Cool.

I have since removed my QR codes as a profile pic. I was a heat of the moment thing, I guess. Maybe even a mid-(life)optimizer crisis.
