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.

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 you need to contact your local ISBN Agency. The contact details for all the ISBN Agencies worldwide can be found on the ISBN International website.

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.  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.

Price Code (Optional)

ISBN Numbers can also be encoded with five-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, 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.

If you have a magazine, you will need an ISSN Magazine barcode.

If you have printed music, you’ll need to get an 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 (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) into the text box before adding to cart.
