Digital Menu and QR code – DIY
Today I’ll show how you can actually do it yourself in 8 simple steps without others taking advantage of the COVID-19 restrictions.
Step 1: Create the Menu on Google Docs
Create your menu on Google docs for free. You can insert your logo and choose from all Google Fonts to make it look nice and pretty. Google Docs works as easy as Microsoft Word or Apple’s Pages. See 1 on the image below.
Step 2: Make your Menu visible
As in 2 in the image below simply click SHARE once you are done with creating the menu.
Step 3: Anyone should be able to view your menu
As you can see at 1 in the image below make sure that ANYONE with the link to your menu can actually view the menu. Normally ANYONE is set as default.
Step 4: Copy the Link
As in 2 in the image below simply click COPY LINK and it will be copied to your clipboard.
Step 5: Create your QR Code for free
QR Code Generator is a free tool where you simply paste the Link you got from your Google Docs Menu as you can see at 1 in the image below.
2 shows you a preview of your QR Code
Step 6: Download the QR-Code image
As in 3 in the image below simply click DOWNLOAD and a popup window will open.
Step 7: Download the image
As you can see at 1 in the image below it offers to Sign-Up but you don’t have to as you can see at 2 in the image it is already being processed.
Then – depending on your Download settings – automatically download or ask you for the destination folder.
Step 8: You are ready to print
The image below shows you the file you just downloaded. Your personal QR Code that will lead your customers to your Menu when they scan it with their smartphone.
Almost all smartphones have the option already installed and simply need to use their camera function.
Print it, laminate it or make copies that you throw out after it was used.
