What is the minimum size of a QR code?


The minimum size of a QR code to be read correctly is 1.5 cm by 1.5 cm or roughly 0.8 x 0.8"

Here is a formula for this that will help you choose the best size:

Scan distance / 10 = Minimum QR code size

 (as long as this number is not less than 1.5 cm or 0.8")

For example, if visitors are 100 cm away, the size of your QR code should be 10 cm.

For example, if visitors are 39" away, the size of your QR code should be 4".


NOTE: Always remember to test the QR code before printing.
