ISBN & Bar Code Agencies

Topic Desc

ISBN Agencies provide authors with an ISBN number.

The Bar Code is the graphic with vertical lines that is found usually on the back cover and encodes numerical information for scanning purposes.

Tip #1: You need a Bar Code only if you plan to sell your book in bookstores.

Tip #2: Get your own free Price Specific Bar Code (different from the one provided by Create Space). Simply go to https://www.lightningsource.com/covergenerator.aspx and follow the steps. Note that each time you'll change the price of your book, you will also need to change the Price Specific Bar Code.
