We’ve heard of all sorts of ways you can promote yourself, but there’s one thing we haven’t done, until now. That’s wear a tee shirt so unique, it’s scandalous! The photo below leads to the Star Gifts Web Site, but scroll down the page some more, and you’ll find another photo with a different QR code. Can anyone resist scanning it to find out where it leads? I doubt it!
Are you shy, or you just don’t know how to approach someone and start a conversation? One of the ways to draw people to you is with something visual that is so eye-catching they can’t resist asking “what is it?” A tee like this definitely sparks interest and conversation.
So if you’re single, I’d order one of these tees that is more than just a unique visual (the black and white is classic, but the RED version might work even better for a single woman). When scanned with a QR code reader, the QR code on your tee shirt takes the user to a Twitter, online dating site, Facebook or other social or web site link where they can learn more about you. Obviously, you’ll stay safe and sensible – don’t give away too much personal information — it’s just a way to get potential dates to get some way to contact you and a few juicy details that make them want to know more.
Doing this is not just a clever way to get attention, it beats writing down information on the back of a cocktail napkin or exchanging cards that might get lost. Once the QR code is on someone’s phone, they can go back to that url and find you again.
If you’re not single, imagine giving the tee to someone very special, with the code linking to a special message, a poem, a link to a song, just for him or her? You could also order one of these tees with a link to a breakup message, although I’m not sure your ex would wear the shirt again (lol)! I can also imagine this as an innovative way to promote a special event, such as a wedding, or a family reunion…just to name two possibilities.
Less personal but easily as effective and clever is to put your business (or your band, non-profit, or whatever it is that you want to promote) on these tees as we have done with our review sample for advicesisters.com. Try checking out the photo of the QR code above? Distributing or selling these tees could bring you a lot of business. Who could resist finding out where the code, leads to?

Choose from stage, screen, or sports, or even make yourself the star. But the item we really liked the most is the QR code tee, which you can still order in time to give as a gift for Valentines Day if a link to a special message is on your to do list.
