QR codes on stamps in Croatia

qrcode-stampmap.jpg

A postal service in Croatia has started using QR codes on its stamps in an attempt to better track mail and confirm when a parcel or letter has been delivered.

The stamps, created by Croation agency Bruketa & Zinic OM, give those that send mail all kinds of information about when their letters or parcels were shipped, how far they travelled and when they were delivered to the recipient.

There's a website dedicated to tracking the stamps and even an interactive map showing where all the different packages and letters have been going.

We've some across plenty of crazy uses of QR codes, like on clothes and cookies, but this is probably one of the most useful examples we've seen so far.
