TEMPE, Ariz.—AzCa Embroidery Inc., a provider of embroidered and screen-printed apparel announces it will digitize and embroider a Quick Response (QR) barcode onto work and casual apparel. A QR barcode is a two-dimensional information matrix that can store text or links to website addresses. Though initially used for item tracking in manufacturing, the QR barcode has become a trend in print media and marketing, the company reports.
According to the company, barcode scanners read the thread the same way it does printed codes. Milhoan and company captured this barcode-to-embroidery process on video and posted it on www.YouTube.com, where it can be found by searching AzCaEmb.
