Magazine (EAN13) code

Postby David Russell(Legacy Member) on Sat Oct 15, 2005 2:40 am

Hi there,

I am trying to get an EAN13 code for a magazine (ISSN number). The EASN13 bit is fine, but with magazines, you have an issue number too after the magazine barcode. have a look at the ISSN Barcode description at:

How can I do this in Monterey Barcode creator? is it currently possible? Is there a different way to do this? We are designing in CorelDRAW, and so an EPS, WMF or similar vector-based format would be ideal!

Yes you can make such a barcode in Barcode Creator 3.0. Convert the ISSN numer to an EAN-13 number, select EAN-13 from the symbology list, and use the following format to enter the message:


Use | to separate the main portion and the add on portion.

You can export the barcode image in Windows Enhanced MetaFile format (emf) and import to your drawing application. Or you can try copy/paste from the Barcode Creator.
