How to print a Pet Tag QR code?
Once you create a Pet ID tag, it’s time to print the QR code. Follow these steps to print a Pet ID Tag QR code:
Select the material
After your Pet Tag QR code is ready, you need to print it. The first step is selecting the suitable material for printing the QR code pet tag. As discussed earlier, there are various printing materials, such as plastic, metal, wood, etc.
The material you choose will depend on your requirements. Metal tags can be the right choice if you want something durable and lasting. If affordability is your priority, plastic tags will be more suitable.
Similarly, you can also go for materials like wood and silicone based on your needs.
Choose the printing method
The next step is to choose the printing method. Now, this step will depend on the material you choose for your Pet Tag ID.
For instance, if you go for plastic, you can either print the QR code directly using UV or LED curable inks. Alternatively, you can print the QR code on paper or a sticker and paste it on the empty plastic tag.
If you choose a metal tag, laser engraving will be the best option to print the QR code.
Print the QR code
Once you identify the material and printing method, the final step is to print the QR code on the tag. Make sure the size of the printed QR code is large and clear to be easily scanned.
Pet tag QR codes are an innovative and practical way to safeguard a pet. The ID tag for dogs, cats, or other animals is easy to use and an excellent option for a furry friend.
