How to generate a QR code for a PDF

The QR code for a PDF is a top-rated tool that allows you to download and share PDF files with other people. Such interactive codes are in demand in business and for personal purposes, as they quickly open access to files through users' smartphones. Users only need to scan the QR code and then can instantly get acquainted with the encrypted content.

Do you want to generate a QR code for a PDF? Use our QR code generator to create and customize interactive codes quickly. Follow these steps to add a PDF file to the interactive code:

  • open the GET-QR QR code generator. This is the main page of our service, where the latest information about the benefits, functions, and updates of GET-QR is concentrated. Also, here you can ask questions in the chat. If you plan to edit the already generated codes, then go to the “Your QR codes” page;
  • select the type of QR code - "PDF". Such a code implies the option to share PDF files with other users. You can add a PDF with any content to the QR code, for example, a product instruction manual, price list for your services, detailed description of product characteristics, etc.;
  • drag and drop the PDF to the appropriate window. Download the specific file or click the “Browse” button to select a PDF from your device's memory. Please note: you can only add 1 PDF file to one QR code, and its size must be no more than 30MB;
  • customize the design of the QR code. At this stage, you can change the code design (the pattern and corners style, pattern and background color), add your logo or select one of the available logos of popular social networks, and choose a frame. Design settings are optional; if you wish, you can leave the default design of your QR code;
  • click "Create" and then "Download" buttons to save the code in the appropriate format (PNG or SVG) and size (1024, 2048, 4096 px). You can observe the changes in the "Preview" window while customizing the design of your code. This way, you can know in advance how users will see your QR code.

Important! Test the generated code. Do a QR code scanning test on different devices and ensure everything is okay. Then use your interactive code as you planned. For example, put the code in a prominent place where customers can easily find it or post it on your social networks.

If you want to see the statistics of your code scans, go to the "Your QR codes" page, select the desired code, and click the "Statistics" button. All relevant information will be displayed here: the total number of scans, number of unique scans, operating system, and browser used to view a code.
