Crafting my way around

Hey!

My husband signed up for Movember this year and I am trying to make him a "stach" shirt.  We came up with an idea to put a QR code on his shirt so people could snap a picture and it will link directly to his Movember page. 

Because the QR code has to be exact so that smart phones will pick it up, what do you suggest is the easiest way to put it on the shirt?  I was thinking maybe an iron on transfer?  But I don't want it to wash off or look cheesy. 

any ideas, thoughts, sugguestions?

An iron-on transfer would provide accuracy as well as possibly enough "stiffness" so that the code isn't warped by the natural movement of the fabric when he walks around. That would be my concern with this idea - the fabric would move and bend, etc, so the code may not work unless he's hold it taught. Stenciling with freezer paper isn't exact enough, I would think.

If you have a craft or laser cutter you can use the application mentioned in this article and produce your own stencil. I don't think you could cut this one by hand. QR codes have too fine a tolerance for putting black and white squares adjacent to one another, and it would be too easy to make a mistake cutting it out.
