  • Explain the usage of ISMNs, and how they can be turned into barcode images for printed music.


Turn ISMNs into barcode images:

You’ll need to get an International Standard Music Number (ISMN), and then get that turned into barcode images.

A 13-digit ISMN, e.g. 979-0-2600-0043-8, can be turned into a 13-digit EAN-13 barcode (in exactly the same way that book ISBN numbers are turned into barcodes).



When ordering, please specify “ISBN Barcode Images” and enter your ISMN number (instead of an ISBN number) into the text box before adding it to the cart.
