Dotted through our print mag you’ll find QR codes – easy-to-use codes you can snap using your phone, that let you shop that exact item, buy those exact event tickets, or watch video content from that shoot or story, just by scanning the page. Easy!
What’s a QR Code?
A QR Code is a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares. You can use the QR Code scanner app or just use Facebook, to scan codes by holding your phone over the code. Your phone will then read that code and load up the exact page: whether that’s a YouTube video showing you a beauty tutorial vid for a look you’ve seen on our pages, or the shopping page to buy those lit shoes.
The great thing about using a QR Code is you don’t have to move an inch, or log out of your social media.
