The size of the Flowcode QR code is an important consideration because it affects how well users can scan it. If it's too small, the code may not be legible; if it's too large, it will take up unnecessary space on the page. That's why it's helpful to size your QR code correctly so that it's easy to scan and looks good on the page.

Too small of codes usually end up unnoticed or unscannable. If printing on small to medium sized merchandise (ex: business cards or flyers), codes should be at least 1x1 inch. As a rule of thumb, it’s best not to create a code smaller than 1” (1 inch x 1 inch).

However, keep in mind where the code will be displayed and how far scanners will be from the display. A 1” code on a jumbotron isn’t going to cut it – but thinking of these tips will make scaling your code more of a common sense issue. Remember that the smaller you make it, the closer customers will have to get.

Size is the most important thing to keep in mind when printing or sharing your Flowcode. Larger Flowcodes are easier to scan and help increase your customer engagement.

If you're uncertain, it's better to be cautious and print the Flowcode bigger. But how big exactly? Practice scanning with your ideal print size and go from there. There isn’t an upper limit on code size, but large sizes are recommended for displays like jumbotrons, billboards, and more where there is a big distance between your code and the phone scanning it.
