QR codes are the new fad for communicating with individuals and businesses.
This pixelated-looking graphic, known technically as Quick Response codes, acts as the modern barcode.
The code can also be activated without the use of a particular scanning instrument. Simply take your smartphone camera and set it on top of the QR code, and your device will send you to that specific website.
How to create a QR code in Canva
People used to believe that producing QR codes was something only computer wizards could do. However, because Canva is always ahead of the curve in terms of innovation, you no longer need to be a tech whiz to generate QR codes.
Just make sure to read and follow the steps outlined below!

Step 3: Enter the URL (website link you want to redirect people to when they scan your QR code)
Go to the website and copy the URL by selecting it and pressing Ctrl + C on your keyboard.
Return to Canva and paste the URL into the appropriate area.
Step 4: After inputting the URL, press Generate code and the QR code will appear in your design.
You can now use this QR code for any design you wish to add it to – be it a business card, a powerpoint presentation, or a digital menu. You choose where you want it and add it.
You can easily adjust the code’s size to fit it seamlessly into any design you choose.
When I’m using Canva Free, can I still utilize the QR code generator?
The QR code generating tool is available to all Canva users, regardless of whether they have a Free or Pro membership. There’s no need to subscribe to a Pro account to take advantage of this useful tool.
Is Canva’s QR code generator capable of producing dynamic codes?
At the moment, the QR code app can only create what are known as static or permanent QR codes. This implies that if the URL you used to enter the QR code changes, you’ll have to establish a new one to update the QR code.
When a QR code is made in Canva, does it have an expiration date?
It’s permanent because the QR code generator generates static codes. To put it another way, the QR code is valid even if you don’t have a plan. You can use the code for as long as you like after you produce it and don’t update the associated URL.
