Best practices for QR codes on flyers
1. Make it eventful
If you’re planning an event, make sure folks can get to it by adding a Google Maps QR code to your flyer. Or, if it’s for charity, add a PayPal QR code and let people donate to your cause if they can’t make it to the event. Make sure you know how many people are planning on coming by connecting a Website QR code to a page where visitors can RSVP. There are so many options!
2. Make it performative
Sure, flyers can show your audience photos, but add a YouTube QR code and let them watch videos of whatever you have on offer. There’s nothing like a video to get folks excited about what you’re selling. Show them video reviews of products or promotional videos explaining how your products will improve their lives.
3. Make it promotional
Coupon cutting is a time-honored tradition among people who love to save money and now coupon scanning is the 21st century equivalent of that. Place a Coupon QR code on your flyer to give visitors a holiday discount or a deal on new arrivals or money off of old stock that needs to go.
4. Make it work for you
Take control of your marketing with the help of our dynamic QR codes on flyers, which you can recycle and reuse at any time. You can alter the content of them without having to reprint them. Simply sign into QRcodeKit.com and change what you need to on the back end of the code. The printed code can stay the same.
In addition to that, dynamic QR codes give you all kinds of useful data like when they were scanned, where they were scanned and how many new and total scans they’ve received, along with the type of device and operating system used to scan them.
5. Make it stand out
Yet another huge advantage of dynamic QR codes on flyers is their customizability. Change the colors to match your brand, add a gradient for some artistic flair, put a logo in it and alter the short URL to your brand name. A customized QR code invites scans.

QR codes on Flyers: how to do it right
See QR codes on flyers in action
If you’re holding an event, you want to get all the necessary information on the flyer, but sometimes that can mean overloading the flyer with information. So, why not let a QR code do some of the heavy lifting? Use a Social Links QR code to list your social media accounts or a Google Maps QR code to show visitors the exact location and give them directions if necessary. If it’s a charitable event, a PayPal QR code will allow people to donate even if they can’t make it to the event itself.
For book launches, add a Download File QR code with a PDF excerpt of the book or an MP3 file with an audio excerpt. Or, a YouTube QR code could host a book trailer for customers to watch. Help folks get their hands on the book by using a Website QR code that leads to a pre-order page.
Coupon QR codes are an obvious choice for store flyers. Replace the cutting with scanning and bring in more customers. Give your customer service a boost by including a Whatsapp QR code so customers can access help with a scan. They’ll appreciate the simplicity of it.
Augment your flyers with more information by having a Download File QR code linked to a PDF that contains more info about the tours you offer. Or, turn a mobile page into a photo gallery and link it to a Mobile Page QR code to entice adventurers to your tours. Promote your company’s app with an App Store QR code that detects the type of phone being used to scan it and takes the person to the appropriate app store.
Print a Menu QR code on your flyers and give your guests the opportunity to scan it and download up to 10 different menus into their phone. That way, they can have it on them and check it whenever they’re feeling hungry. Give them your main menu, drinks and dessert menus and any specialty menus you have. It’s perfect for restaurants.
