Book Barcodes

Books have barcodes that are based on the ISBN number of the book (International Standard Book Number). These book barcodes usually 13 digits long and begin with 978.

Do you have an ISBN Number?

NO – You’ll need to get an ISBN Number before we can provide you with the barcode images for it. To get an ISBN Number for a UK publication you have two options:

1. UK ISBN Agency. The cost for one ISBN number (without barcode images) is £89.00.

2. Independent Publishing Network. They can supply an ISBN number (without barcode images) for £30.00.

YES – If you already have an ISBN number, but you don’t have a barcode for it, then you can order the barcode images for it below.
