What is a vCard?

A virtual business card (vCard) is a type of electronic business card. It's just a plain text file with a few fields within. Microsoft Outlook (98-2019), Mozilla Thunderbird, and most mobile clients support vCards, which have a .vcf extension. As a result, it's a surprisingly popular format for storing contact information.

The following is the structure of a sample vCard:

BEGIN:VCARD
VERSION:3.0
N:{Last name};{First name}
FN:{First name} {Last name}
ORG:{Company}
TITLE:{Job}
ADR:;;{Street};{City};{State};{Zip code};{Country}
TEL;WORK;VOICE:{Phone number}
TEL;CELL:{Mobile number}
TEL;FAX:{Fax number}
EMAIL;WORK;INTERNET:{E-mail}
URL:{Website URL}
END:VCARD

Reasons for using vCards

Adding vCards to an email signature may appear to be like adding a second email signature to an existing one because they contain contact information. So why would you use a vCard in the first place? There are several compelling reasons for this:

  • vCards can be used to add a contact to a variety of address books fast (desktop and mobile contact apps, email clients, etc.).
  • They're supported by almost every email client and mobile device on the market.
  • When a vCard is included in the form of a QR code, it usually blends in nicely with the signature design.

Simultaneously, you may create a good and functioning email signature without utilizing a vCard. In other words, whether or not to use vCards is entirely up to you.

How to use vCards?

A vCard can be used in a variety of ways. You can do the following:

  • In an email or message, attach a VCF file.
  • Make your vCard available on the Internet and provide a link in your signature.
  • Host a vCard and use a QR code to link to it.
  • Or, encode a vCard straight into the QR code.

The last element is perhaps the most interesting, because it allows your recipients to scan the code and have the corresponding contact information automatically added to their phone.

Because the QR code is an image, it can be linked directly to the vCard, making it the simplest way to add a specific contact for both mobile and desktop users.

What is Online VCard QR Code Generator?

QR Code Generator is a free online tool that allows you to create QR codes. "Quick Response Code" is the abbreviation for "Quick Response Code." The QR Code is a two-dimensional barcode that was initially utilized in the Japanese car sector in 1994.

Its great data storage capacity makes it preferred among other barcode kinds. QR Codes may contain any text-type data, but they've recently become popular for storing links.

Although QR Codes have various applications, they are most commonly used to provide links to websites and mobile applications on the Google Play and Apple Stores.

Aside from that, you can use them to generate vCards (Mobile Contact Cards), send e-mails, make or receive payments, and so on.

Smartphones can scan QR codes either natively or through third-party software. If you require a QR Code Scanner, look on the mobile markets.

QR codes are made up of black squares on a white backdrop. The more text there is, the more squares there are. As the text grows longer, the squares become smaller and smaller.
