ISBN – Barcodes for Books

ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is the only valid barcode format for books. ISBNs are a set of numbers starting with 987 issued exclusively by the International ISBN agency. You must apply for and obtain your ISBNs from if you wish to include one on your Book. Please note you cannot use the EAN-13 or UPC-A numbers we supply for books.

After you have your ISBN numbers you’ll need a barcode image to display the code on your book cover. We provide correctly formatted ISBN barcode images, guaranteed to scan, at a fraction of the cost of GS1 affiliate companies. Get in touch with us to discuss a quote – [email protected]
