The QR code is a quick response code which is a two dimensional barcode and can be used on media to provide a fast way to get to your chosen short link. Pick your custom QR code colors below or just use the defaults that are set:

A url shortener is a service to take long urls that exists in so many places on the web and make it short. A lot of long urls are just created automatically and are difficult to copy and paste to somewhere else without breaking them, they are not user friendly. Another reason to create a short url is so it can be placed into social networks easily such as twitter. Our pnut url shortening service also allows to create your own customizable short links and QR codes. In the near future we will release a url shortener api to allow more interaction with our current site.
We have browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, Edge and Opera that make it even quicker to create that short URL. These work by being added to your browser address bar. When you reach a site URL that you would like to make a short version of just click on the pnut extension. Then click on 'Create Short Link For Current Page' and a small URL is created immediately for you to use. Not only that a QR code of the shortened web link is also created which can then be placed anywhere for your users to scan with their phone. Please contact us about this free service we provide if you would like more details on it.
