WristbandConnection.com, a company known for some of its most popular products, such as the "Don’t Text and Drive” thumb rings and “Band Against Bullying” wristbands, is announcing the pending completion and launch of its newest personalized wristband product line - QR Coded Silicone Wristbands or simply QR Code Bands™.
These exciting new products make use of the fantastic QR (Quick Response) Bar Code technology which Japan has given to use and yet has hardly been utilized.. WristbandConnection.com’s online QR Code Band design tool will allow customers to create their own personalized QR Code which will then be embedded into a special Patent Pending silicone wristband which protects the code from wear. The QR Code can even be combined with other messages and artwork which can be printed onto the wristband.
To the naked eye a QR Code looks like a distorted image, but in reality QR Codes are mobile phone-readable 2D barcodes containing advertisements, text based information, a website URL, an email address, phone number, or a pre-formatted SMS message. The QR Code Bands™ can store an unbelievable 1,700+ characters of detailed information!
WristbandConnection.com CEO, Victor Rey states “We want to take our personalized silicone wristbands and bracelets to the next level. Using QR Code technology on our 1 inch wide wristbands which have a patent pending, the QR Code wristbands, will allow anyone with a “smart”-enabled phone to decode the message or be transported directly to a URL etc."
Links to Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, personal messages, favorite phrases or passages, personal or business contact information, VIP access, website links or other types of information can be stored and selectively shared! Imagine someone asking for your Facebook page, you simply present your wristband and with a snap of their iPhone or other QR Reader enabled mobile device, they are instantly connected! Can you see this? Kids and people of all ages will love it. Parents will love them when sending the kids on field trips or to camp, because they can create bands that store all types of contact and emergency info. Marketers can use these to promote new products and websites. The uses are endless and we have the technology to make it available right now!”
Rey also states that “What makes these different than other applications of QR Codes? Well, millions of people will wear them, and they are as much a personal statement as they are a fashion accessory. The QR Code Bands™ will expand upon the personal expression of wristbands. We feel this is the perfect way to “personalize” QR Code technology and make it not only fun, but maybe even a useful part of our everyday lives. ”
With clients such as AT&T, Google, OfficeMax, Coca-Cola, UPS, and American Express, WristbandConnection.com is sure to see some great exposure with this product.
Did you know? A QR Code is a two-dimensional bar code and was created by the Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed. Denso-Wave has not exercised its patent rights, thus allowing the technology to be freely shared and used. It’s just another way that the Japanese have made our world a better place. WristbandConnection.com will donate $1.00 from every QR Code Bands™ band sale to the American Red Cross – Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami disaster relief effort:
