Static and Dynamic QR Codes

Dynamic QR codes allow you to change and edit the code as much as you want.
When the code is scanned, it redirects you to the URL contained in it. These codes give you the freedom to package your design, such as adding contrasting colors. They also have the ability to monitor and measure ad statistics.
