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. You can get a single ISBN number for £30.00 through the Independent Publishing Network.

2. Alternatively, you can get one from the ISBN Agency. This will cost you £91.00 for a single ISBN number.

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.

    Please supply ALL the ISBN numbers at the time of order, i.e. if you have 10 ISBNs, please supply all 10 ISBN numbers on the checkout page.

    Immediate delivery by email: Your barcode images will be automatically generated (based on the ISBN number you provide) and emailed to you in 5 formats (jpeg, pdf, tiff, bmp & eps).
