Barcodes for Books
If you have an ISBN number for your book, you can purchase the barcode images for your number below.
If you don’t have an ISBN number yet, we know of 2 main options -
1. You can get one from the ISBN Agency. This will cost you £121.98 for 10 ISBN numbers (you can’t just get one). There are several pages of joining forms for you to fill in & fax, post or scan & email to them.
2. You can get a single ISBN number through the Independent Publishing Network – it is very simple – it is free to join – then they can supply you with ISBN numbers as you need them for £15 each.
Once you have your ISBN number, come back to us to get the barcode images.
You will receive your ISBN barcode images from us by email (in 5 different formats: jpeg, tiff, bmp, eps & pdf). We can supply these in either standard 13 digit format, or with the optional extra 5 digit price supplement after the main barcode. If you want the version with the 5 digit supplement, let us know when you make the order, and tell us what you want encoded in the barcode supplement.
These barcodes can be used worldwide

How to use your ISBN barcode:
After we receive your order, we will use your ISBN number to create your barcode images.
Your barcode images will be emailed to you in 5 different formats (jpeg, eps, bmp, tiff & pdf) and 2 different styles (so you will receive a total of 10 images). One style will have your ISBN number printed above the bars of the barcode (like in the example above), the other style will not.
You can choose which barcode format & style you prefer, and insert the barcode picture into the design for the cover of your book before printing. If your book has already been printed, you can order sticky barcode labels for your ISBN number & manually attach them to each book.
ISBN Barcode with Price Code:
If you would like your barcode image to include a price code, like in the example above, please let us know when placing your order. A “0″ at the start of the 5 digit supplement represents the £ sign.
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 again for 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.
