Congratulations on creating your own custom Flowcode! Now, let's go through the steps to print your QR code and ensure successful engagement in the physical world.
Until you get your Flowcode QR code out into the physical world, you won’t get any scan engagement with it. That’s why the set-up process doesn’t just stop at creating your code. Here we’ll walk you through how to successfully download and print your Flowcode in a few simple steps.
To find a printer near you, you can use the following link: https://www.google.com/maps/search/printers+near+me/. For this guide, we'll use Staples and FedEx as examples, but most printers offer similar options. You can find the closest Staples locations here.

As you create the layout for your table tent, poster, or sticker batch, ensure that your design matches the dimensions of your chosen product you’ll be printing it on.

If you don't have accounts with the printers, you can continue as a guest. Enter the necessary details for billing and shipping.
When deciding where to place your printed material, you'll want to make sure it is in a location where it can be easily scanned. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
