I’ve been seeing QR codes more often in the U.S. They pop up on concert posters and websites, though mostly as things of novelty. To Americans, they probably resemble some sort of alien language turned abstract art.

In Japan, QR codes have been in the mainstream for years as an alternate link to marathon-long web addresses. Whenever you see a QR code — let’s say, on a cereal box — snap it on your camera phone and you’ll be taken to the company’s site filled with information and maybe even a coupon or two.

Especially if you’re a small businesses, QR codes are great for promoting your products. Here’s all you need:

QR Code Stamp

It’s a cute stamp embedded with your own personalized QR code. Suppose you just opened a crepe shop in the neighborhood. Instead of spending money on billboards and newspaper ads, you can go around the block stamping your QR code onto any white space you see. You can even be sneaky and stamp it on the competitor’s napkins.

The little toy comes with a self-contained inkpad so that your stamp never dries out. And they’re made to look like animated people and animals; the ultimate stealthy facade when trying to beat out the competition!

    Leave it to the Japanese to do everything in a cute fashion. I would love to see a grown businessman take this out of his suitcase and stamp it on the back of someone’s business card.

      Thanks for reading japanizmo! That could be a good idea to have QR code on your business card for some companies.
