I created an image size of 3cm x 3cm then printed mine out on waterproof photographic paper. Then Using the template you can cut it out to size.
You can choose any text for the QR code
For example I have included:
Name, Address postal and Telephone number
but you could included important medical information or known allergies.
Try scanning the code in the photo to see how easy it is.
USE THE ZOOM BUTTON OR THE STUDIO LOGO HIDES SOME OF THE CODE
For safety reasons the tag cannot be opened without destroying it, so any parents or gardiens can immediately know if the tag has been tampered with therefore avoiding any risk of tampering with the information inside.
The outside of the tag is marked in with the international SOS and on the rear side Emergency please read QR code, so any emergency or police services can quickly identify it and access the important information.
