QR Clothes: I am a leader of fashion

Filed under: QR clothes,QR codes,t-shirt — admin @ 10:19 am

I have received a press release from emma cott to highlight that they are making it simple for people to have their social network site profiles embedded on t-shirts etc. in the form of QR codes:

It’s worth noting as:
1) The majority of my site’s taffic is driven by the QR code posts.
2) It’s the first time that I have been singled out for a press release, thus joining the ranks of a million other bloggers.

QR codes have been appearing on clothes for a while, there is even a Facebook app, although emma cott seems to be trying to gain competitive edge by providing a range of networks and a variety of ‘motives’. Personally I would like to be able to add my own motive and any URL.

I think there will be more and more QR clothes in the future, and my own QR t-shirt will look increasingly amateur:

Which is a shame as I got it made in October, and have barely had a chance to show it off over the winter months.

A New T-shirt

Filed under: blogger,t-shirt — admin @ 12:34 pm

Whilst not on a par with my personalised qr code t-shirt, it is nevertheless a welcome addition to my blog promoting t-shirts:

The picture quality isn’t great as I MMS-ed it to my Hotmail to save on carrying a usb lead. Unfortunately, despite hours of trying, I have failed to successfully manage to get my T-Mobile N95 to post directly to blogger…although the rumour seems to be that I can manage it through a Yahoo account.

At last my own QR code t-shirt

Filed under: QR codes,t-shirt — admin @ 8:03 am

When I first blogged about QR codes on the 5th of October I mentioned that I wanted to get my own qr code on a t-Shirt. Now, thanks to the University of Wolverhampton School of Art and Design, I have my own qr code t-shirt.

Does it work? Yes. In fact it even works from the above photo!
