I put this page together so I had quick access to a high quality, automatic barcode generator for my book covers. Just type in your ISBN below, and the price (if you want your barcode to have one), and you'll get a zipped file of your high resolution barcode instantly in two formats - EPS and PDF.

The program will automatically convert 10-digit ISBN's to their 13-digit equivalents.

Put your ISBN number here:

Add a price (optional):

The first digit is "5" for US$, and "6" for CAN$, followed by the price.

5    $ US
6    $ Canada
4    $ New Zealand
3    $ Australia
0 & 1    British pounds

51995 = $19.95USD | 61450 = $14.50CAN

If you don't want a price, just use the default value (9000) - this will add a second smaller barcode embedded with "no price". OR delete the 90000 and leave it blank, to get just the single barcode with the ISBN.

 

 

 

PS: Check your barcodes! These should work everywhere, but before you print a thousand copies of your book, please test the barcode to make sure it works. There are many smartphone apps that read barcodes; you can even scan the barcode right from your computer screen - if the book is already for sale it should show you comparative prices. If it's not yet for sale, it may pull up the information from Bowker, but this will depend on the app you're using.

Special thanks to  bookland.py for the original code used in this barcode generator.
