Barcodes for Magazines

Most magazines and other periodical publications use ISSN numbers (which are turned into barcodes). There is no local ISSN Agency in South Africa – therefore, to get an ISSN for your publication, you will need to contact the ISSN International Centre.

After you have your ISSN, please come back here to purchase the barcode images for your number:

These images can be used worldwide

After we receive your order, we will use your ISSN to make your EAN-13 barcode images. You will receive an email containing your barcode images in 5 different formats (jpeg, pdf, eps, BMP & tiff).

NOTE: Let us know if you want your barcode to have a supplement number at the end (EAN-13+2 format), like in the example below, to represent the issue number of the magazine (this is optional):
