Here is unique idea from France; a Teller Party is a friendly and relaxed evening where everyone comes in a T-shirt and where each T-shirt has a Teller Code ®.
The Teller Party can be directed but more often it stands alone in the sense that people take pleasure in discovering what each is “hiding” behind the code – just for that evening.
To help you succeed in your evening (or morning for that matter), they offer our “Teller Party Kits”.
Your kit contains a discount code (to appear on posters and flyers) that will allow anyone to use it to get a € 5 discount on all purchases made on their site, and you the promoter gets a voucher for € 5 each time it happens.
The “Party Kit Teller” is 17.50 € (packaging and delivery costs included for metropolitan France) , specifically designed for individuals and / or small associations, sports clubs and communities. It includes:
- 5 posters TP - A2 (59x42cm) on glossy coated 135gr.
- 4 assorted posters TC - A2 (59x42cm) impressession high quality with UV coating on coated 200gr.

A California sushi restaurant; Harney Sushi’s will print edible, water-based ink quick response (QR) codes on rice paper wafers and serve these codes on its sushi. The QR code will take customers to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s FishWatch website, which will provide diners with information about the fish they’re consuming, sustainable species on Harney’s menu and the latest news coming from the sustainable seafood world. The initial launch will utilize just one code that will lead to the FishWatch homepage, but the program will eventually include species-specific codes.

Brazil’s largest youth and student travel organization Central de Intercâmbio has a print campaign running showing flags of the world composed from QR Codes. The idea is that students can cut out the ads and use them as pocket travel guides. The large QR Code in the Spanish flag below resolves to a mobile site with comprehensive information on the city of Madrid.

The Dutch company LogoBorduurstudio have produced a YouTube video of a computer controlled embroidery machine creating a QR Code. The company based in Barneveld, The Netherlands will embroider a QR Code on either an item of clothing you send them or on any item from their range of casual and work wear. The QR Codes measure 6cm square without a border and 7cm square with a border. It costs $65 but I would guess that there is a significant amount of setup time involved. I had some excellent printed t-shirts made at Zazzle.com
Found the www.visualead.com QR Code generator a few months ago, I was quite impressed with the technology and resulting QR Codes. They gave me a few credits so I could review their site, here is the review. It will be short since the site is so easy to use.
I used a local PR Agency (http://richettmedia.com/) photo since their site uses responsive web design and looks great on a computer screen and on a mobile phone, so scanning the QR Code could actually be useful! Click the link above and then scan the QR Code at the end to see a responsive web design site.
Step1: Select an Image (Yours or theirs) – I uploaded a photo, but could have chosen one of their images.
