ISBN Barcodes for Books

Books require an ISBN Number (International Standard Book Number), which gets turned into a barcode image.

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 (with 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.

If you want the version with the 5 digit price-code supplement, let us know when you make the order, and tell us what you want encoded in the barcode supplement. This format takes 12-24 hours as has to be made manually.

If your book has already been printed, you can order sticky barcode labels for your ISBN number & manually attach them to each book.

Some Feedback from ISBN Barcode Customers …

Many thanks for your rapid and efficient service. I work with xxx publishers here in the UK, who produce a large number of books every year, and will recommend your service to my contacts there; I will certainly be back for more when I need them!” – Steve

“I would like to express my thanks for the prompt and efficient provision of the ISBN Barcodes we ordered. We spend a huge effort in producing a book and give little thought about the barcode. A carefully prepared book may easily sell a million copies and for each one the barcode wil be read at least once. So to have that right each time is a great achievement. Thanks to your Barcode1 organisation. Many thanks and I would recommend your Company to all.” Bill.

“Thank you so much for sorting out my barcode so speedily, I used you two years ago when I published my first book, and I’ve used you once againfor the second book – and again recieved.excellent service. If you would like to use that endorsement, then please feel free!” Sue.

“They look really good, I will definitely recommend you to my associates..” Roxanne.

“Many thanks for your swift response! The barcode is now on my book cover.” Bill F.
