Create the best looking QR codes easily and quickly using QR Factory.

Over 10 built-in types of codes with customization options for rounded corners, background gradients, a logo in the middle and more.

Export the codes into multiple types depending on the requirement. For bitmap, there's PNG and TIFF, for vector (great for posters or large printing), there's PDF and EPS. On top of this multiple colorspaces are supported, including RGB, Grayscale and CYMK.

Need to create multiple codes? Use a CSV file to create as many codes as necessary with all the customization and export options available. We've successfully tested creating over 100,000 at once - there is no limit, and no in-app purchase required for this feature.

QR Factory is designed to be secure from the ground up. QR codes created are stored locally, so they are owned by you. There's no hosting, re-directing to ads or any type of interference when scanned by a customer.

It's also notarized by Apple, uses the Hardened Runtime and has built-in support for the Internet Access Policy (when using Little Snitch).

QR Factory requires macOS 10.11 or newer. Compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur.
One license is valid for up to 3 Macs for personal or business use.
No subscription required.
All updates to 2.x are free.

Beautiful Customization

Create codes that stand out with rounded corners, linear/circular gradients, a transparent background or even add an icon in the middle. It's so smart it even traces the path around the icon no matter the shape to add a perfect border.

Export Thousands

Using a formatted CSV file, an unlimited number of codes can be exported with a few clicks. The perfect solution for creating QR codes for inventory, business cards, posters and more.

There's no in-app purchase required, it's already included with QR Factory.


Professional Output

With support for exporting PDF and EPS for vector based files, QR Factory is the go to app for printing codes. Add in the ability to save in Grayscale, RGB or CMYK colorspaces, and it's all set for perfect color reproduction and scaling.

Exporting to bitmap formats is covered too. With support for both PNG and TIFF at sizes up to 4096 x 4096 pixels, it's easy to create great looking codes.

The codes can also be rotated at 90° increments when being being saved to help with certain layout requirements.

Full Control of Codes

All the exported codes are generated and saved locally - nothing leaves the Mac.

The codes are not hosted by us and therefore we have no interaction with them. There are no restrictions on what can be done with the codes, no ads shown when scanned, no redirects, etc.

Code Verification

No more codes in the wild that can't be scanned because of a certain color pattern or from being obscured.

Quickly verify that a code is scannable with the built-in verifier. With one click, QR Factory will run a test to see if a customer would be able to successfully scan the code.

Using the verifier, it's easy to increase the reliability level until the code is scannable.
