ISBN Book Barcodes
All books use International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN). These are obtained through a designated organisation in each country. If you already have an ISBN Number and require the barcode images for this, then the images can be purchased below. If you do not have an ISBN Number then you can find the designated organisation for your country on the ISBN International website (or you can purchase ISBN numbers from our sister company the Independent Publishing Network).

Sample ISBN Barcode:
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.
0 (or 1) = GBP
3 = AUD
4 = NZD

ISBN Barcode Turnaround Time: Once we receive your order, we will manually create the ISBN barcode for you, and email it to you. This will normally take 2-24 hours, depending on the time of day/week that you make the order. Our normal office hours are 7am-7pm Mon-Fri (NZ time), plus we process some orders on Saturday whenever possible.
If you have a magazine, you will need to see our ISSN Magazine barcode page.
If you have printed music you’ll need to get a International Standard Music Number (ISMN), and then get that turned into barcode images. A 13-digit ISMN, e.g. 979-0-2600-0043-8, can be turned into a 13 digit EAN-13 barcode (exactly the same way that book ISBN numbers are turned into barcodes). Please order “ISBN Barcode Images” (above) and enter your ISMN number (instead of an ISBN number) into the text box before adding to cart.
