Way of delivery

Our barcodes look like on the image below (number and bar thicknesses are individual, of course):

You will get your barcode as PDF or EPS file (both are vector formats which can be zoomed lossfree). You make sure beforehand that you can process either of these file types (samples). We deliver only by E-Mail or by web download (i.e. a link where you can download your barcode for a week).

The GTIN (EAN/UPC) offered by us have no special country prefixes (like 40 through 44 for Germany, 90/91 for Austria, 76 for Switzerland/Liechtenstein), etc. but start with 07 or 08. These will also work world-wide, as prefixes are not significant for their function within a certain geographical area. However, some shops/distributors require you to have country-prefix EAN codes. Please ask your distributor beforehand if there are such restrictions..

If you prefer to have a GTIN of a certain country, address yourself to the company GS1 of the concerning country.

There are no such restrictions if you sell on Amazon.
