Break the (QR) code
A QR (quick response) code is a unique barcode that can provide a vital link between print media and mobile commerce. A QR code stores information (usually a link to a website URL) that can be read by devices with a QR scanner or camera (such as a mobile phone or smart phone). They can be placed in ads, on packaging, in a direct mailer, on a website, or on just about any other type of marketing piece.
To see how QR codes work, check out the poster below. A sample QR code appears on the bottom right.
If you scan the QR code above with a compatible cell phone or smart phone, you'll automatically be linked to the Web page that is embedded in the QR code (http://www.sipsnation.com/events).
