ISBN Book Barcodes

All books use International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN). These are obtained through a designated organisation in each country.

 

Do you have an ISBN Number?

NO – If you don’t have an ISBN number, then you’ll need to get an ISBN Number first. You can apply for an ISBN number from the designated ISBN organisation for your country. You can search for your local ISBN organisation on the ISBN International website. (or you can purchase ISBN numbers from our sister company the Independent Publishing Network).

YES – If you already have an ISBN number (but no barcode images for it), then you can order the barcode images for it below. 

NOTE: You’ll be asked to enter your ISBN number into the ‘additional information’ section when you get to the checkout page. Your ISBN number will be automatically turned into barcode images, and emailed to you straight away.

You will receive your ISBN barcode images straight away by email (in 5 different formats). You can choose which barcode format you prefer, and insert the barcode picture into the design for the cover of your book before printing.

Price Code (Optional)

ISBN Numbers can also be encoded with 5 digit price codes (“EAN 5”) on the end of them. These codes can encode a price of up to ‘99.99’ in GBP, USD or CAD only. E.g. to encode $9.99 USD the EAN 5 would be “50999”, These price codes will be picked up by some scanners and can make it easier for retailers to establish the recommended retail price for books, however most scanners do not read this code at all and it is not common practice for ISBN numbers to have this price code. If you wish to have a price code added for your ISBN number, please indicate that you would like this, and what price and currency the price code should represent in the ‘additional information’ section when filling out your information.
