Hello, I'm working on a business card in which I want to put a QR code that anyone could scan and get more of my contact information (eg. personal URL, address, etc.).

 

My question is, say it's been about 1 year and someone scans the QR code. Will it still show the information I had initially set up?

Unless the camera has a hard time reading the paper (faded, damaged paper for example), yes, it will continue to work. The data is in the code.

The URL is in the QR code. But some companies sell Qr codes made with link shorteners. These short links might expire. So be sure you know what actual URL is encoded in the barcode. If InDesign makes them they are as permanent as the address itself.
