ITF-14 Carton Codes
An ITF-14 barcode is also known as a GTIN 14 or TUN. It is made from a 14-digit sequence of numbers and is used on the delivery carton (the large carton used for delivering the product that will be for retail sale). An ITF-14 code is based on the product’s EAN-13 (or UPC-12) barcode number.
You can order your ITF-14 Code below.
After ordering, please let us know what your EAN or UPC product barcode number is by adding it to the “additional information” part of the checkout page (or sending us an email). We will use the EAN or UPC number to make your ITF-14 barcode images, and then we will send these to you in 4 different formats (jpeg, png, svg & pdf) via email.

Please enter your EAN-13 barcode number into the additional information box when you get to the checkout page. We will use it to create your ITF-14 carton code images. If you are purchasing an EAN-13 barcode at the same time as an ITF-14 barcode just type “n/a” in the additional information box – we will assign an EAN-13 barcode number to you, and then use that to create your ITF-14 barcode images.
NOTE ITF-14 barcodes are for use on cartons for shipping, not for retail sale. If your carton is being sold at retail level, you should use an EAN-13 retail barcode on the carton.

How to use your ITF-14 Carton Code:
We will email your ITF-14 images to you – they will be approx. 157 mm x 48 mm. After you receive your images, you can choose your preferred format and print the barcode onto the shipping carton.
NOTE: ITF-14 codes are for the shipper container only. Products for retail sale (whether sold individually or in bulk) need EAN-13 or UPC-12 barcodes. See the examples below:
If you are delivering cans of baked beans to supermarkets in boxes that contain 24 cans each, and the cans are to be sold individually in the supermarkets, you would need the following:
1) One EAN or UPC barcode (for example. ‘0123456789012’) that will go on each of the baked beans cans; and
2) One ITF-14 Code (based on your product’s EAN or UPC number – i.e. ‘10123456789019’) to go onto each of the delivery boxes.
If the supermarkets are selling your baked beans cans both individually (as separate cans) and in a 4-pack lot, then you would need to get the following:
1) Two different EAN or UPC barcodes (one to go onto the baked bean tins that are being sold individually, and the other to go onto the 4-packs); and
2) Two ITF-14 carton codes (one for the delivery box containing the individual baked bean cans and the other for the delivery box containing the 4-packs of cans).
Here are some common questions:
This means that if the retailers only use barcodes for option 1, you can get away with having the same barcode for 2 product variations (i.e. different colours of the same product), however, if the retailer uses barcodes for option 2 as well, then a different barcode will be required for each product variation.
In general, retailers prefer to stock products that will be straightforward to manage. Some retailers may prefer not to stock products if they have to manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore is is recommended that you have a different barcode for each variation.
