FYI:

The main pedestrian front door to the building is located: https://plus.codes/9C5VC26H+7W3

(or even just paste "9C5VC26H+7W3" into a Google search. Using this "standard" pluscode is the most versatile and preferal format. Having that code embedded into a QR code also works well with Google Lens. When Google recognises either the pluscode website address, the raw pluscode, or the pluscode as QR code, it brings up a map and/or directions - exactly to that front door.

As a test, I posted a hand-written postcard from a Coleraine post-box to an address in USA only address with a pluscode - and it was successfully delivered!

How did you generate that qr code? It looks brilliant and I'd like to use this format for #1347 and for a stamp people can ship out on their products, should they choose to do stamp their outgoing orders as I will.

That's quite alright, I think I can make something that generates these with a basic command line utility. There's qrencode which generates the qr image, I will take a look at generating the text underneath. Additionally, maybe it could use https://fontawesome.com/v4.7.0/icons/ these icons if the user specifies so.

so it could be like this:
qrencode "link.to.website" | script.sh where the script is the generator of the subtitle. The script would also embed the doesliverpool logo in the center of the qrcode.

Maybe it's a bit late, I've just found this possible stand-alone option that might be able to embed a DoES logo into QR codes: https://github.com/kozakdenys/qr-code-styling/packages/28546 ?
