QR codes have made a comeback (due to the corona crisis) and are really being used for all sorts of things. So too for Christmas cards! You can print Christmas cards (translation: kerstkaarten drukken in Dutch) or distribute them online. Why are Christmas cards with QR codes so trendy? You can read about it here!
First, a little more about the QR code. In the past you needed a special app to scan a QR code. Nowadays you only need to point the camera of your phone at it and you’ll see the link appear, super easy!
Christmas cards with a QR code are very suitable for business Christmas cards. You can put a Christmas message on it and of course the QR code. This code can be linked to a website where you can order or donate Christmas gifts. Another idea is to share a personal video message with all your staff. Because you can quickly send someone to a website, you can do anything with it! So you can put all your creativity into the Christmas cards.
Cards with QR codes are also very suitable for personal Christmas cards to friends and family. It is a way to make your cards much more personal. You can use the code to refer to a personal video, vlog, funny gif or a song that means a lot to you. Can you think of anything fun?
Then think of something else! In principle, all materials can be printed. If you would rather not have Christmas cards printed because of the environment, you can also choose from sustainable paper types. Another idea is to have (sustainable) stickers with QR codes printed.
An e-card is a thing of the past. People simply attach more value to tangible means. So it is much more effective to print Christmas cards instead of distributing them online. The nice thing about a QR code is that you can still add a technical gadget to your card.
