CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8

Instant and effective communication with a QR code generator

A Quick Response (QR) code is a type of barcode that represents information in two dimensions. Typically, QR codes consist of dots (also called “pixels”) arranged in a square pattern and displayed against a contrasting background. QR codes are known for their fast readability and can store information such as website addresses, phone numbers, and messages.

In this modern world of technology, you need a QR code generator to keep up with the current trends. And of course, CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X8 now includes a free QR code generator as a must-have feature for all designers. It's a popular way to reach a variety of target audiences with an immediate and concise message. You can change the shape of the QR code, the appearance of the pixels and the background.

Create and add unique scalable QR codes into any design as a mobile marketing tool. Add text, images and colors to your codes to make them standout, or blend in—the options are endless! Plus, the built-in validation ensures your QR code is fully functional and can be read on major smartphones and scanning apps.*


What can QR codes do for you?

  • Increase awareness for your design, brand, company or unique product
  • Disseminate important information to a fan base or loyal customers
  • Promote a special deal or other savings benefit
  • Provide a wide-reaching way to share design tips, unveil a new illustration technique or showcase your portfolio
  • Expand your content or message with a QR code to direct readers to additional information, content, designs and more

"I've never seen a more complete and flexible QR code generator than this—and it is all vector as well. Pretty awesome!"
