QR Code templates help you stick to your company’s branding guidelines for every campaign. It lets you ensure that every QR Code has the same design attributes representing your brand in the best way possible.
While you’re creating your QR Code, during the customization step, you’ll notice a default template under Templates. This template is editable and can be customized.
Similarly, you can create your own templates and apply them to your QR Codes.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Once you’ve finished customizing your QR Code and it’s ready for download, you have the option to save its design as a template. Click ‘Save’ under ‘Save design’.
Step 2: To access your saved template(s), select ‘QR Code Templates’ on the left navigation bar.
You can click on the three dots on the top right corner of the template to duplicate or rename it.
To edit the template, click on it. Once you’ve made changes to the design, click Save.
Once you edit a QR Code template, the changes apply to QR Codes currently using it. You have the option to duplicate the template to avoid affecting those QR Codes.
Once you delete a template, its design attributes will still be present on the QR Code.
Step 3: To create a new template from scratch, click on +Create on the top right corner of the dashboard.
Step 4: Design your QR Code template and click Save.
Now, when you’re creating/updating a QR Code, you’ll find these templates listed when you’re customizing it. You can pick one and keep it as is or modify it based on your requirements.
Any customizations you make to an existing template will override its design.
Enforcing templates in organizations (For Enterprise users)
You can enforce templates in an organization to make sure that the branding guidelines are followed throughout. This will restrict users to select from only the available templates for customizing their QR Codes. All other design attributes will be disabled.
Here’s how it works:
Go to the Account page in the dashboard and update the organization. Enable the toggle to enforce QR Templates, and click Save.
Note: Only the Owner and Administrator in a master organization can perform this action.
Once QR Code templates are enabled, only the Owner and Admin in a master organization can create/update QR Code templates.
If templates are enabled for an organization, the Admin and Editor don’t have access to the QR Code Templates page.
To create/update a QR Code template, you can follow the same steps above. The only difference is that once you delete a template, its design will revert to the default template.

Step 2: After you’ve selected the QR Code type and set it up, during customization, you’ll notice a list of predefined templates available to choose from.
You have the option to select one.
Step 3: Your QR Code is now ready for download.
