Magazine & Newspaper Barcodes

Magazine barcodes and newspaper barcodes are based on the ISSN number (International Standard Serial Number) of the magazine or newspaper. This applies to all magazines, newspapers, and other periodical publications. We can supply the barcode images based on your ISSN number.

If you don’t have an ISSN number yet you can get one from the Irish ISSN Centre.

To apply for an ISSN, please download and complete the ISSN application form and return it by post or email to: [email protected].
