History of the ISBN. In 1965 Great Britain the largest book retailer decided to move its stock to a computerised warehouse and needed a standard numbering system for books to track stock inventory. The SBN numbering system was developed (Standard Book Numbering) system in 1966 and installed in 1967. After a international committee was formed the SBN was then expanded to a International Standard Book Numbering now known as (ISBN) in 1970 and has become the standard for today as a globally accepted service. ISBN's are incorporated and registered for every book published and is a way to track information like Title, Author, Issue Number and Price.
For every new book being published the publisher should apply for a new ISBN number from there local national library. Part of the registration process is to submit the title, author, and publisher to the library so it is recorded to the ISBN number.
ISBN’s follow the standards of EAN13 type barcodes and can be ordered in approximately 16 different sizes. The most common sizes are 80, 90 and 100%.
Barcode Solutions produce all types of barcodes. As a volume barcode producer we charge the same amount for an ISBN Barcode as we do for a UPC, EAN, ITF, Pharma code, ISSN type barcode. The more barcodes you order the cheaper it is per barcode. We can also print most types of barcodes directly on to barcode labels for you ready to use.
