ISBN Barcode

What’s an ISBN?
An ISBN, or International Standard Book Number, is a unique 10- or 13-digit number assigned to every published book. An ISBN identifies a title’s edition, publisher, and physical properties such as trim size, page count, and binding type. ISBN’s are required for all published work.

How are ISBN’s used?
Bookstores, retailers, and libraries identify books by their ISBNs. We print an ISBN barcode on the lower back right corner of every book we manufacture. If you are self-publishing, we need to answer the most asked question about ISBN numbers, which is, “Am I locked into not being able to re-release my book if I am offered a publishing contract by another publisher?” The answer is, “No you are not.” Worst case scenario is all you may be required to do is change the title of your book. No changes to the interior would need to be made.
