You sell more paint and your customers go home with the know-how they need to get exactly what they want from their purchase. Happy business owner, happy customer.

If you have an online business that sells products requiring instructions for assembly or use, you can embed a steplist with all the how-to information right on your online store. Your customer can download the instructions so they know exactly how to use your products.

Each how-to steplist you create generates its own QR symbol. You can easily include the code on your packaging so your customers can download the instructions upon delivery. Simple, elegant, effective.
