QR Codes

QR Codes are a great way to share links to your individual or troop Digital Cookie Storefront, contact-free! If you've never made a QR Code before, or you want to make one that's on-brand for Girl Scouts, follow the directions below!

Building the QR Code

Copy your Digital Cookie link and open your QR Code generator app! GSWO uses QR Code Monkey to build our branded QR Codes.

Note that the QR Code preview in QR Code Monkey doesn’t update automatically every time you change a setting. To preview the changes you’ve made, select the green Create QR Code button under the preview image.

Enter Content
This is where you’ll paste your Digital Cookie URL.

Set Colors
For the foreground color, select Single Color (which should be auto-selected) and Custom Eye Color. The Single Color should be #00AE58, and both Eye Color boxes should be #000000. The background color should be #FFFFFF.

Customize Design
Finally, you’ll design the style of the QR code.

  • Body Shape: Select the fourth box from the right on the top row, which is large circles that touch.
  • Eye Frame Shape: Select the circle outline
  • Eye Ball Shape: Select the solid circle

Exporting the QR Code
Once you’ve selected all of the settings above, preview the QR Code by clicking the green Create QR Code button under the preview. If it looks right, select the size you need from the slider (1000px by 1000px is the default and should be fine in most instances), then click Download PNG.

Now you can print your QR Code and use as needed! We recommend adding a note to any printed pieces that say something along the lines of "scan this with your phone's camera to buy Girl Scout Cookies online!" so those who aren't familiar with QR Codes know what to do.

Girl Scouts of the USA’s Response to Concerns about Palm Oil

GSUSA, and baker partners, Little Brownie and ABC, have released updated information and messaging for volunteers, Girl Scouts, and the public, addressing concerns about the use of palm oil in Girl Scout cookies.

GSUSA has been an affiliate member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) for almost ten years, and as an affiliate member, GSUSA supports the RSPO’s vision and efforts to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil products.

Girl Scout Cookies baked by both Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Bakers use Mass Balance RSPO certified palm oil and include the RSPO Mass Balance logo on their packaging (i.e. RSPO “Mixed” certification label). Both bakers’ future goal is to achieve 100% RSPO-segregated certified palm oil products for all Girl Scout Cookies they produce. They continue to work with their suppliers to explore strategies and timeline to achieve this goal.
