What is the optimal size for QR code?
Optimal QR code size, readable to standard smart phones (5PM camera or more), should be higher than 15mm. This is the smartest solution for your business card or other promotional material as you can safely presume most of the smart phones will be able to scan and read it. If you have an audience that less tech savvy and supposedly own older smart phones (with a low-quality camera - 3PM) make sure your QR code is at least 20mm. However, if your customers are advanced tech users - owners of the latest smart phone models (with high-quality camera - 12MP or more), you can impress them with 6mm QR code.
How come QR code created with CardURL is so small?
QR code size normally depends on information density - amount of information that the QR code contains. Amount of information is defined by number of columns and rows QR code consists of, these are called modules and characters. Let's say your QR code contains 102 characters, its density will need to be much higher, therefore the size of your QR code will need to be bigger. What differentiates QR code created with CardURL is the number of characters that never exceeds 28. This is because the QR code contains only the URL to your profile. With a small amount of characters you can have a small-sized QR code that fits to your business card perfectly.
