ISBN 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, please contact the South African National Library. They will issue your ISBN. Then come back to this page, cut and paste the number into the order form.

You will receive your ISBN barcode images from us by email (in 4 different formats: jpeg, png, svg & 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:

Book Barcode using an ISBN number

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 4 different formats (jpeg, eps, bmp, tiff & pdf).

You can choose which barcode format 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.
