Print to Avery & DYMO Labels

We listened and delivered an incredible new feature in QR Factory 3 - layout the QR codes to print onto labels from Avery & DYMO.

Using the multiple code feature, choose the label number that will be used and it will generate a multi page PDF with all the QR codes laid out exactly to the template.

Need specific sizing? Add custom dimensions if your desired size isn't in our extensive pre-set list.

Professional Formats

QR Factory has support for many of the file formats needed for professional agencies including:

  • PDF & EPS* for vector formats
  • PNG & TIFF* for bitmap formats
  • RGB, CMYK and Grayscale color spaces
  • Export up to 4096 x 4096 pixels for bitmap formats
  • Optional rotation in 90° increments to help with certain layout requirements
* These formats are only available on the macOS version due to lack of native support on iPadOS. We're working on adding these in a future update.


Command Line Interface (CLI)

On macOS, QR Factory can be launched via the command line to generate single or multiple QR codes. All the features that are normally available are also provided through the CLI. It even supports the standard input and output streams for redirecting the generated QR codes, or providing the content from another tool.

    verified Auto Verification

    QR codes are continuously scanned to ensure that they are readable by a real user. The result of the verification is shown below the code.

    As well, it also will monitor the reliability level when a middle icon/logo is used and adjust it accordingly.

    description QRD File

    It's also fully transferable between the macOS and iPadOS versions.

Productivity Boosters

In addition to the professional features in QR Factory 3, we've also included the following abilities (click on the tabs to the right to view them) to help increase productivity.

Mac & iPad

QR Factory 3 is available both macOS and iPadOS.

We specifically built it using native technologies (Swift & SwiftUI in particular) with custom interfaces for each platform. We believe apps should be easy to use and follow the interface patterns for each platform.

The best part is, one subscription provides access to both platforms. Using QRD files, it's even possible to work on one and move to the other without any interruptions.

People love QR Factory

We've been working on QR Factory for almost 10 years, and now with this major update, we're pleased to announce that we've added many customer requested features and improvements.

Professionals love using QR Factory with the ease of use yet powerful options, especially the multiple codes feature and the delightful customization choices.

To see what's changed with each update, check the latest release notes.

QR Factory 2.x has many 4 & 5 star ratings on the App Store from happy customers, and we're confident we'll see a lot more with version 3!
