Colors

Most people are used to QR Codes appearing in black and white. However, Veecard.me’s color editing feature allows you to change the colors in many ways.

  • You can choose the shape you want your code to look like with the “Style” tab. You have the option to choose from square, round, or dot.

If you choose Gradient:

  • Choose from five options to set the Foreground Style
  • You can also set the First and Second colors for the Foreground.
  • To change the inner Color of your QR code, use the ” First Color” option.
  • To change the outer Color of your QR code, use the ” Foreground 2nd Color“.

Select “Color” for your “Front Type“.

You only need to set your Background Color.

You can also adjust your ” Background Color” or ” Background Color Transparency“.

You can also change the Color of your QR Code eyes.

  • The ” Inner Color” can be set. This will change the Color of your QR Code’s square box.
  • To change the Color of the outer boxes, set the ” eyes Outer Color“.

Branding

You can find the Branding tab’s functionalities if you want more from your QR Code. This tab allows you to add your logo to your code. This is how you do it:

  • Click on Choose File to upload a file. We accept JPG, JPEG, and PNG file formats.
  • You can always adjust the size of your logo by moving up or down on the ” Size” slider.

Options

You can make technical changes to your QR code using the options bar. For example, this tool allows you to:

  • Adjust the pixel quality of the QR Code by changing the value.
  • So set the Margin size of your choice to reflect the space between the code and its borders.
  • Set the Error Correcting Capability in your code. This allows you to restore data if your code is damaged or corrupted. There are four levels of correction available.

Keep in mind, however, that increasing error correction levels improve their effectiveness and increase the data QR Code size.
