The QRnotes labels program (this program) helps you create labels by producing web pages full of new labels for your account - then you use the 'print' function of your browser to send them to a printer. You may print them on regular paper or label stock (available at you office supply store) - or have us, or the 3rd party of your choice, print them for special sizes and media - such as stainless steel tags, etc.
We have chosen to include label sizes around 3/4 inch x 3/4" as most smartphones can read them* but you may also add your own. In general, the only changes you may need to make to the included samples are to your browser's 'print margins' that will show up when you select the print option on your browser. We have "recommended margins", on the bottom of this page but your printer may well require different margins (EVERY label type may have different margins). ** When in doubt - the FULL PAGE label is easiest to line up - then just cut them outwith scissors.
We recommend that you test print on plain paper a few times with different margins. Once you have found the right margins for the label stock you are using , enter them in to the margin fields on the bottom of the page and we will remind you next time you select this label stock.
This program keeps track of your accounts 'next ' unprinted label so you do not reprint labels accidentally.
1) There is no standard size that a QR label must be. They can be infinitely large BUT there is a practical limit as to how small they can be. Just as human eyes vary in how small a print they can read, smartphones vary in how small a QR label they can read.
2) If you don't want to mess with labels, we can print them for you or you can print them on regular paper. Cut them out and attach them by placing some clear packing tape over them. If you need metal ,plastic , or other special material tags we would be happy to assist (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3) We have found that placing clear packing tape over a QR label does not significantly effect the ability to read them and helps keep the ink from being rubbed off.
