Across the country, our outdoor furniture allows visitors to scan a QR code on their smartphone to learn more about the Place, or the story of the person or event, the bench is dedicated to.
When you purchase certain products from our recycled plastic furniture range, you’ll be given the option to add a My Place and Story QR code to your product – your furniture will then arrive with a QR code attached, that when scanned, sends the reader to a dedicated page on the My Place and Story website.
How does it work?
Get started by choosing how you want visitors to access your story. You can either purchase just a QR code plaque (great if you already have a bench with a memorial plaque attached), a Memorial plaque with an attached QR code (great if you already have just a bench) or get everything (including the furniture) directly from TDP.
Our service can be used in a variety of locations, from benches, to buildings, to posts in the ground! So there are lots of flexible options for whatever your circumstances.
Once you have chosen where to fix your QR code plaque (or placed your furniture if it came pre-installed), you’ll be able to scan the code with the camera app on a compatible smartphone.
The visitor will then be sent to your unique My Place or Story memory page. This page will tell them all about the person or place you are celebrating – allowing them to read about their history and see photographs.
Depending on whether you are celebrating a person or a place, the visitor will be shown different things – from biographies and testimonail messages for a person, to history and facilities for a place.
