Step 2: Creating the QR Codes

After thorough research, the best website I found to create the QR Codes was http://www.qrdvark.com/qr-generator/ . This site gives you the options of a URL, Plain Text, Email, SMS/MMS, Phone Number, Location, Contact, and Calendar Event. In addition, the site also allows you to tweak with Error Correction.

For my shirt, I used 5 QR Codes, Contact, Phone, URL, Email, and SMS

Here is a step-by-step for the 'Contact' QR Code:
1. Under 'Select the type of QR symbol you want to make.' Select 'Contact'
2. For best resolution, you are going to want to choose '500x500' for the 'Image Size'
3. Choose 'H' under 'Error Correction' so that the shirt is easily readable by a phone. 
4. And then simply fill in all of your information under 'Contact.'
5. Then click 'Generate QR Code'
6. Right click the QR code and open in the image in a new tab. 
7. Right click and Save the QR code to an accessible folder

You can repeat the steps using whatever type of QR symbol you want until you are satisfied. 
It's funny, geeky and graphic, but isn't anyone concerned about privacy issues any more? Just my take.
<p>Its nobody's else's concern. If he wants to show his contact info, let him do it!</p>
Paranoia will get us nowhere! :) <br> <br>Great idea, I think I will use it for my business card though :P
With respect to the Instructbale, I figure that my information can be found anywhere on the internet anyways. With respect to actually wearing this shirt in public, the qr codes are difficult to scan from far away.
I don't think I'd want this on a t-shirt BUT how awesome would it be to have one on a wallet or purse? SO going to do this.
Your email and phone number is scannable from the photo. You should have made a seperate shirt for this instructable....just sayin'
Wow - what a great idea to use for pets!! Now I'm going to have to figure out how to do this....
I scanned all with my cellphone :E<br><br>I used UpCode app (for symbian)
Very cool idea. Let us know how well it works after the orientation.
Thanks! Will do!
I LOVE this idea. We have two boys (dogs) that love to be naughty and run off. With this and a little clear contact paper I was able to create QR codes with more info and adhere it to the back of their id tags. You could also just use two pieces of clear contact paper with the code sandwiched inbetween for a 'soft' id tag. This would be useful if the code, even at it's smallest, is bigger then the ID tag. <br> <br>Wow, I am a geek. What can I make a code for next?
You could also print these out and iron them on to your own t-shirts I'm guessing! I recently added a QR code to my business card. I feel so cutting edge.
I thought a QR code game could be fun:<br> <br> http://einarkramer.22web.net/index.php/nyhetene/52-qr-caching-a-game<br> (URL below)<br>
