QR Factory 3

Create stunning QR codes using built-in templates for print or web, either individually or in batches.
Stacks Image 4594

QR Factory 3 is the premier QR code studio for macOS and iPadOS.

This next generation app has been completely re-written using Swift for an efficient, easy to use solution. Whether it's a single QR code, or thousands using the multiple code feature, they will always have a professional appearance.

With a subscription (or a one-time lifetime access purchase), get access to unlimited codes on both platforms, either individually or using the powerful multiple codes feature. All codes are generated on-device and belong to the user with no re-directing to ads or interference. All app data can be stored in QRD files for easy editing of codes or moving between devices.

An unlimited number of codes can be created in one batch from a CSV file, along with an optional validation report at the end showing the readability status of each code. In addition, if the codes will be printed on labels, it can output them in a grid for almost all Avery & DYMO label sizes. Once the codes are ready, saving them is easy and flexible, whether it's for a business card, a large poster or a website.

For deeper integration with workflows, QR Factory can also be used through its Command Line Interface (CLI) on macOS. All the features that are normally available are also provided through the CLI.

QR codes can be quickly shared, copied to the clipboard and exported to bitmap (PNG, TIFF) or vector (PDF, EPS) formats along with optional rotation. In addition, support for the RGB, CMYK and Grayscale colorspaces is provided.

QR Factory has been trusted by companies for almost 10 years as the premier app for creating professional codes. Now, with the latest version available, we've moved the bar even further.

10,000 QR Codes

    info Description

    Using a formatted CSV file, an unlimited number of QR codes can be exported in one batch. This is an incredible time saver for making business cards, labels for inventory control, posters and more.

    The exported QR codes can also be verified for readability with a summary file created.

    There's no in-app purchase required, it's already included with a QR Factory 3 subscription.

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.

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.

    verified Translations

    Not everyone speaks English, so we added translations for 8 languages:

    • French
    • German
    • Italian
    • Spanish
    • Russian
    • Portuguese (Brazil)
    • Chinese Simplified
    • Japanese
    • Ukrainian
    • Dutch
    • Czech
    • Danish
    • Finnish
    • Swedish

    info QRD File

    The entire app state can be saved into a snapshot, called a QRD file. This can be opened later to make changes to a QR code design without having to start over.

    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.
