QR Codes are a great way to share links to
your individual or troop Digital Cookie Storefront, contact-free! If
you've never made a QR Code before, or you want to make one that's
on-brand for Girl Scouts, follow the directions below!
Building the QR Code
Copy your Smart cookie Sales Link (either
individual Girl or Troop) and open your QR Code generator app! GSCSNJ
uses QR Code
Monkey to build our
branded QR Codes
Note that the QR Code preview in QR Code
Monkey doesn’t update automatically every time you change a setting.
To preview the changes you’ve made, select the green Create QR Code
button under the preview image.
This is where you’ll paste your Digital Cookie URL.
For the foreground color, select Single Color (which should be
auto-selected) and Custom Eye Color. The Single Color should be
#00AE58, and both Eye Color boxes should be #000000. The background
color should be #FFFFFF.
Finally, you’ll design the style of the QR code.
- Body Shape: Select the first box on the top row
Frame Shape: Select the first option (square)
- Eye Ball
Shape: Select the first option (solid square)
This will give you a traditional QR Code look that customers will
easily recognize. Feel free to get creative with the design and make
it your own!
Exporting the QR Code
Once you’ve selected all of the settings above, preview the QR
Code by clicking the green Create QR Code button under the preview. If
it looks right, select the size you need from the slider (1000px by
1000px is the default and should be fine in most instances), then
click Download PNG.
Now you can print your QR Code and use it as needed! You can print
out a sheet of your QR Code, cut them out, and tape them to flyers,
door hangers, etc.
QR CODE PRO TIPS:
- Always test your QR Code to ensure it works correctly before
providing it to customers
- We recommend adding a note to any
printed pieces that say something along the lines of "Scan this
with your phone's camera to buy Girl Scout Cookies online!" so
those who aren't familiar with QR Codes know what to do.
