Engraving a QR code

Hey everyone, I am trying to engrave a QR code on wood. When I print it, it doesn’t scan. I’ve tried inverting it in photoshop but that didn’t help either. How do I do it?

Engrave black into the wood and paint the the bottom of the engrave, or engraved reversed (black on top) and paint the surface. Contrast is king.


Can you post a picture of what you engraved? I’ve made QR codes that read easily. Didn’t need to do anything special.


I make my business cards out of veneer and there is a QR code engraved into them. Is it possible to show a portion of the qr code without giving the info away? I might be able to give some suggestions to get you where you want to be.
