Step 5: Here is where you can customize your QR code (Nametag). The first screen for me is changing the color of the code image. Tap the screen and it will change the color to a variety of pre-selected choices. If you like the color, then you can share this as is by tapping the share icon at the top right of the screen, but if you want to try something different, tap the Color word at the top of the page.


Step 6: You now will be on an Emoji screen. That is right– you can add an emoji to the background of the QR code. Your personality can be displayed here. Tap the screen to get a selection of emoji to choose from. Tap the one you want and you are ready to share, but there is one more option. Tap the Emoji word at the top.



Step 7: They give you one more choice to design your Nametag (QR Code)– you can add a selfie to the background. Yep, add your face with a face filter. If you are doing this for the first time you should see the selfie camera screen. Now tap the screen and it will change the filter. Once you have decided on the image then tap the camera button at the bottom center.


Now you will see your selfie in the background. Here you can tap the screen and change the filter of your selfie. If you are happy with it, tap the Share option at the top right. If you are not happy with your pic, tap Retake at the top right for another try. When you do tap the Share option, you will be given many choices where you can share your Nametag. Done!
