Vector QR Codes with SVG logo

Many QR Code Generators allow to change the colors or embed a logo in a Designer QR Code. However, only a few services support to upload your logo as vector graphic in addition to the standard rasterized formats like PNG or JPG.

What is a vector format?

When you design a logo for example in Adobe Illustrator, you can save the logo in a vector format like SVG, EPS or PDF. Instead of the logo being saved pixel by pixel (which is also called rasterized), the information in the vectorized image just contains functions like curves, lines, circles, bar or polygons, which makes the file size very small.

Why should I use a logo in vector format?

If you zoom in a QR code with a logo that was saved as a PNG or JPG file, the code and the logo will become blurry, pixelated and, in the worst case, unreadable. With our QR code generator, you can upload your logo in SVG vector format and the QR code will remain crisp no matter what size you display or print it.
