ISBN Barcodes for Books

If you need a barcode for a book, we recommend that you first get an ISBN (International Standard Book Number). AN ISBN can be easily transformed into a barcode number for your book (therefore you will not need to buy a unique barcode number).

To get an ISBN you will need to contact the National ISBN Agency in South Africa www.nlsa.ac.za (send an email to [email protected] to apply for an ISBN). After you have your ISBN, come back here & purchase the barcode images for your number.

ISBNs are unique international numbers that are assigned to published books & similar publications. ISBNs are recorded in book directories internationally. They enable publishers, libraries & book stores locate a specific book quickly and efficiently (for re-ordering purposes). A different ISBN is required for each different format published (eg. online books or different language editions).

Once you have your ISBN, come back here and order the barcode for your number below. We will then email you the correct barcode artwork to print on your book.

These barcodes can be used anywhere in the world

Each country has its own designated organisation that controls the distribution of ISBNs. The organisation for South Africa can be found here
