Best practices for QR codes on vehicles
1. Increase the ROI of your branded vehicles
Branded vehicles are a great way to get the word out about your business. Wherever your vehicle is, there are bound to be folks checking it out. But, as with any other form of advertising, branded vehicles alone are passive forms of advertising.
Having QR codes on vehicles as part of the branded wrapping turns them into active advertising. The beauty of active advertising is that it promotes interaction with your brand. When viewers of your branded vehicle take action to scan your QR code, they are more likely to become fans and followers.
2. Track your path to success
Dynamic QR codes on vehicles provide you with some basic analytics that will help you determine the relative ROI of your campaign and where you need to make adjustments to boost that ROI. The data our codes give you include when and where your codes were scanned along with how many new and total scans they collect throughout a given day. Plus, they tell you what types of devices and operating systems were used to scan them.
This is real time data you get. Someone scans your code, that scan immediately shows up in the numbers. Download your data into reports to share with your team so everyone knows how amazing your QR codes on vehicles are doing.

Real life examples of QR codes on vehicles
Your logo would look great in the middle of your QR codes on vehicles. Try it and see. We recommend logos that are simple icons with no words. Adding a logo makes your code more trustworthy and increases brand awareness.
If you want to add a little branding power to the short URL, go ahead and edit it to something that reflects your brand.
For a supercharged branding experience, go for the white label masking option. This will mask QRcodeKit.com’s involvement and make it seem like the code and the complete URL all comes from your website. Slick.
The minimum size a QR code should be is 3 x 3 cm (1 x 1 in). Technically, there is no maximum size for them, but keep in mind that the larger a code is, the further away a person needs to be to scan it.
Contrast in your QR code should be strong with a darker foreground and a lighter background.
