What can I do with 2d barcodes?

Market yourself, your business and inform the world of  your products and expertise.

The term 2d barcode is applied to barcodes which use both the vertical and the horizontal components of the barcode symbol to hold data.

Above is an example of a 2d barcode. These bar codes can be used by smart phones such as the iphone and Android among others for marketing to share data such as web sites, phone numbers, contact information, SMS code, twitter code and much more.

These codes can be used on websites for Realtors  to display properties, general contact information, in brick storefront widows for specials, and any place on or off the web where you want to share information.
