Summary: Summary: Use this fast free QR code generator to print a vCard QR Code. Also, learn what data a vCard QR code contains and how a vCard QR code is used.


A QR code becomes more visually complex and less readable the more data (text) it contains. Therefore, a vCard QR code is typically limited to these fields: Name, Job Title, Business Name, Website URL, Email, Address, Telephone, Verbose Info. The original v-code specification includes fields for logos, photographs, and audio clips which aren’t available in the QR code version because of space limitations.

vCard is a file format standard for electronic business cards. The most commonly-used filename extension for vCards is VCF. A vCard is essentially a text file that is formatted to contain contact information that can be easily exchanged between various contact management programs or devices that have contact management applications, such as mobile phones.

A vCard is often exchanged as a .VCF file attached to an email. vCards can also be exchanged by instant messaging or as downloadable files from websites. A vCard can also be exchanged by scanning a QR code.

vCard is short for Versitcard. The format was originally proposed in 1995 by the Versit Consortium, which consisted of Apple, AT&T, IBM and Siemens. In December 1996, ownership was transferred to the Internet Mail Consortium, a trade association for companies having an interest in Internet e-mail.
