William Overington Posted October 24, 2022 Share Posted October 24, 2022 Today I made two A3 size landscape signs using Affinity Designer. I produced a one-page PDF document for each of the signs. I also made two one-tenth scale png graphic files of the designs, as displayed in this post. I did the designing using pixels as the measurement units, so a one-tenth scale png graphic of the design was a convenient size to use. The upper one is to express Welcome. and the lower one is to express Thank you for visiting. in a language-independent manner. The idea is that a person may understand the meaning as expressed in his or her chosen language by knowing the meaning from previously, or the code number allows it to be looked up in a list. The QR code contains the same information as the code number so that automated look up could take place using a smartphone that has a camera and a suitable app. Using the exclamation mark before the digits is done so as the code number is not expressed in the same way as an actual number. At the time of starting this thread it may well be that only a very few people recognize the intended meaning from the glyph, the only decoding list is as far as I know for English, and as far as I know there is no smartphone app to do the decoding. Yet one needs to start somewhere, to take the early steps forward to try to achieve results in the future. I had produced the QR codes as FREE TEXT style QR codes at the following website. https://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/ In each of these QR codes there is encoded just the exclamation mark and the digits, there is not a return character included in the QR code. The downloaded QR code images are each 1012 pixels square (=23 times 44). There is a download arrow above the displayed QR code at the website. After I had produced the one-tenth scale png graphics of the signs I tested each of them at the following website and for each of them the text encoded in the QR code in that one-tenth scale image decoded successfully. https://products.aspose.app/barcode/recognize/qr I am hoping to obtain some hardcopy prints of the A3 size signs on 350 grammes per square metre paper from an ooline virtual print house.
