A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. [...] The information encoded can be text, URL or other data. (Wikipedia)

As an example the QR code to my blog looks like this:

This plugin adds QR codes for any specified link to the bottom of the page. It is intended to hide these QR codes from the screen and show them for printing.



First of all you will need jQuery. You may utilize the Google CDN:

<script src="" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>

Download and integrate the plugin. A minimized Version is available, too.

On your page you have to add the following javascript:

$(document).ready(function() {


This page makes use of jQuery.printQr. Show print stylesheet to see the QR-Codes on the bottom of the page or print the page.
You may have a look at a generated PDF which displays the QRcodes generated by the plugin.
