Unless you use the Advanced One Piece Cover Designer (highly recommended) Lulu will add a barcode for you.
If you do use the Advanced One Piece Cover Designer you must incorporate an ISBN barcode yourself.
hey, so on this topic... i will be buying ISBN but not barcodes,....i'm in australia and can buy seperate...do i still add the ISBN number on the back even though it wont have a bar code? .. please advise...
A barcode for the ISBN has to shown on the back cover.
If you use one of Lulu's distribution package you must have an ISBN.
The original discussion was on whether Lulu will add a barcode for you or not.
With the exception of the Advanced One Piece Cover Lulu will add and place the barcode for you.
If you use the Advanced One Piece Cover then you must add a barcode image yourself as I said previously.
yesi was aware fo the topic of thread.. but since my query was simialr i thought to jump in...
i wont be using lulu barcodes or apckage.. just printing the book...
in australia it seems to buy the isbn is seperate from buying barcode.../ the website here says so....
so this was my question
Lets say hypotherically i only buy the isbn number- do i still place on back Or if there is no barcode- just use isbn on inside cover?
Cor, this is hard work.
If you use one of Lulu's distribution package you must have an ISBN and a barcode for the ISBN has to shown on the back cover.
You don't have to buy barcode images.
There are lot's of places where you can get a barcode image for free. My favourite is http://www.tux.org/~milgram/bookland/ and Lulu always gives you one for free anyway.
