QR Code Challenge

Real Estate Agent with Lake and Lodge Realty LLC

Trying to keep up with the new technology is a full time job. My company was in the process of having new t-shirts screen printed when I cam across the Kodak / ActiveRain June Mobile Marketing Challenge and decided it was time to venture into this area. Our Screen Printer is Kelgraphic's in Cadillac, MI and it was no challenge for their art folks to whip up a simple yet effective t-shirt. The shirts wont be done before the challenge ends but here is a sample showing the direction we went.

Traveling in unchartered waters is always a fun experience for me. We won't know how well these work until we get a call from someone who just scanned the guy in front of him in the supermarket check out lane to see what Dream Started Where. Best of luck in all you do and thanks for reading.

I know the world is going QR crazy but I just haven’t taken a liking to them yet.

Hi Randy,

Don't you need a "Q R reader" to figure out what the code says? Who has one? How do you get one? They kinda remind me of a "bar code". You look at it but it means nothing because we don't understand what it means.

If you can't read it, then most have no use for it. But it is a "rage" until something new comes along to dislodge it.

Just a thought.

Hi Randy,

I haven't spent much time lately on AR so I didn't know about the QR Challenge, but I really liked the simplicity of the text. Hope you did well with it!

I use the QR codes on my listings and have a reader downloaded on my smart phone.  Not sure I want someone scanning my shirt, though :)
