The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is an eight-digit number which identifies periodical publications as such, including electronic serials.
The ISSN is a numeric code which is used as an identifier: it has no signification nor does it contain information referring to origin or contents of the publication.
The ISSN barcode is generally printed directly on to front covers of magazines and newspapers and can also be printed with a addendum number to keep a track of issue numbers
For every new printed edition of newspapers and magazines it is easier for these items to carry the ISSN barcode.
ISSN’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 ISSN Barcode as we do for a UPC, EAN, ITF, Pharma code, ISBN 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.
Once you have received your ISSN number please ask Barcode Solutions to produce your high quality barcode image for you at a discount price.
