    Adjust the Corner Radius

    QR codes have distinctive square patterns in their corners. Normally, these square patterns have sharp corners by default. However, there are times when business owners want to have rounded corners to match the style of their brand identities.

    3Ccard users can always choose whether to use rounded or sharp corners on their QR codes. To adjust the corner radius, feel free to drag the parameter slider. The corners will get sharper as the parameter slides left. On the other hand, the corners will get rounder as the parameter slides right.

    However, bear in mind that it is advisable to avoid corners that are too rounded as it can sometime affect the readability of the QR code. Devices can have difficulities in scanning such QR codes. Therefore, it is always a good practice to test the customized QR code before you proceed to publish it.

    Create QR Code with Text

    Do you know that you can also include text within your generated QR code?

    To create a QR code with text, click on the greyed-out Text button that is sitting below of the corner radius slider. A text window will appear with three adjustable settings – text, text colour, and size.

    You can key in any text that you like in the text field. The text will appear at the centre of the QR code. Then, you can also adjust the text size by dragging the parameter slider. However, bear in mind that it is suggested to keep the text shorter and small. A text that is too large and long can sometime affect the readability of the QR code. Devices will not be able to scan such QR codes.
