If you need barcode numbers only (without the barcode images*), you can order them below. These come through in the EAN-13 format, but we can supply UPC format as well
* Barcode images = the actual barcode picture that gets scanned at the checkout (vertical black bars and spaces with the barcode number printed underneath). If you do require these, you can purchase barcode packages (incl the images and a guarantee certificate) here.
Note: If you find out later that you need the barcode images as well, that’s fine – you can come back to us & order the barcode images when you need them (you can order the barcode images here). We will email the barcode images to you in several different formats (jpeg, pdf, tiff, bmp & eps), and you can then incorporate the barcode image into the design for your label or packaging.
