email_wysiwyg: Your barcode number(s) is shown below. In this format (with the leading 0), it is an EAN13 number. It can also be used in 12 digit form without the leading 0 (UPC-A format). Some retailers have systems that prefer numbers without a leading 0. See <a href=""></a> for more details. We recommend that you print your barcode as supplied in EAN13 format, and let retailers decide whether they wish to incorporate the leading 0 or not. We do not need any product information from you (because your barcode will only become connected to your product via your retailer’s inventory system). When a retailer first receives your product, they either scan the barcode or type the number into their system, & also enter your product details, price, reordering info etc. After this, when they scan your barcode, your product information appears on their screen. We have supplied images for you in 5 different formats (jpg, eps, tiff, bmp, & pdf). You can choose the format you prefer & insert the barcode image into the design of your label or packaging. Note the images we have supplied are close to 100% size, but will have slightly different dimensions depending on what software is used for processing them.  Standard EAN13 barcodes are allowed to vary in size from 80% to 200%. The height and width can be varied independently (eg you could choose 80% height and 100% width). For image dimensions please see <a href=""></a> .  Please ensure you leave enough margin (white space) on each side of the barcode. We recommend keeping your barcode as close to 100% size as you can. For good scanning, the barcode width is more important than the height. If you are tight for space, you can reduce the size to 80% (approximately 20mm high x 30mm wide). In practice, the height can be truncated further to say 15mm if needed. (Note - if you do this, the height will be less than the official minimum of 20mm) Your images and guarantee certificate are in a zipped file (.rar) – you will need to use a program like WinZip or WinRAR to open/view them. Winrar can be downloaded from <a title="Win-Rar" href=""></a>.  If you have trouble with this, please email us and we can unzip the images and email them to you. These images have been created for you using automated software. There are some limitations to the quality of the images created this way - so if you are using the pdf or eps images and find you need a better quality image, please email us and we will then create the images manually and email them to you (at no extra cost). To register your barcode(s) and product(s), please go to <a href=""></a> If you have problems using this link (which is in Beta test phase), please let us know what the problem seems to be, and email us a list of the following - <ul>Barcode Number *</ul> <ul>Product Name *</ul> <ul>Subtitle (if any)</ul> <ul>Description</ul> <ul>Brand / Manufacturer *</ul> <ul>Manufacturer Contact (eg website, email, phone)</ul> <ul>Unit Size or colour</ul> <ul>Image URL (URL link to jpg image)</ul> <ul>Price</ul> <ul>Currency</ul> <ul>LinkURL</ul> (* are essential) Note – It is difficult to make changes once a product is registered so we charge an extra fee if you require changes after submitting the information. For further information about using your barcode, please see <a href=""></a><a title="Using your barcode" href="">.</a> We also have a simple barcode guide in pdf format available <a title="Barcode Buyer Document" href="">here</a>.

Some of the CDs & DVDs that are using our barcodes

Examples of CDs that are using our barcodes


“How do I begin using my barcode on my CD or DVD?”

To begin using your barcode, just insert the barcode image into the artwork for your cover (before printing), or print it onto sticky labels to attach to the cover of your CD or DVD.

When your retailers receive your product they will enter the barcode number into their system along with your product details (price, description, reordering information). After that, when they scan the barcode your product information will appear on their screen.

If you are listing your product on an online store that requires barcodes (such as Amazon), there will be an opportunity to enter your barcode number into the form when listing your product.

Your barcode is just a unique number (no product information is directly encoded in it). The only link between your barcode & product is the one created through your retailers inventory system.
