Make it Yourself | Free printable: QR code valentines

Obviously, we know our way around QR codes. After all, not only do we make QR code jewelry, we’ve even made a QR code jack o’ lantern!

So even a holiday like Valentine’s Day should have a good dose of geek chic.

We put our laser-cutter to work and made this:
"Be Mine"

If you’re curious about what it encodes, get your smart phone out and scan this:

Since we know it’s not likely that you’ll have your own laser-cutter, we’ve made a printable version. (Though, if you’re really ambitious, you could still cut out the QR code!)

Happy Valentine’s Day geeks <3

    I love it! It’s perfectly geeky, and that’s romantic enough for me.:)

    Actually Matt, it does scan – and obviously, you’ve scanned it because you know that it encodes “be mine”. The valentine in the photo is actually laser cut, and so long as the shadows aren’t too apparent (i.e. it is placed on a black background) it works fine. The printable version also scans with the ScanLife, Scan and i-nigma apps on an iPod Touch, so I can only assume it works on other devices.

    Admittedly, it’s probably not the most romantic valentine, but it’s up there for being quite ‘geeky’. It’s just something we did as a fun free printable for people to download, and to spark ideas of what can be done with QR codes.

    I love the idea, but I see a lot of holes. For one, the top example heart is white, which will not scan. And to be honest, a text msg isn’t very romantic. I have been making some great mobile landing pages for weddings, that can work for valentines. Put a romantic video or scavenger hunt for your loved one to go on, something other then a “be mine” text.
