Resources

We've created several tools that assist in creating PDFs, covers, barcodes, etc.
Eventually, we'll place them all here for you to use, for free.

  • ISBN-13 Bookland Barcode Generator

    Create a vector PDF file or a high-res PNG file

    This tool creates a barcode image as a .PDF file, or as a high-res .PNG file ready for printing. The barcode can optionally include the price supplement.

    ISBN-13 e.g. 978-3-16-148410-0
    Price, in $US e.g. 24.95 or 10.00
    (if $100 or more, use 99.99)
    Leave blank if not required
    Or 90000 for no set price
    Or any five digits
    DPI 300 600 1200 2400
    Percentage scale, a number between 80 and 200
    Leave blank for no scaling (100%)
  • ISBN-13 Hyphenator

    Puts hyphens in the proper place in your ISBN

    Were you provided an ISBN with no hyphens, or perhaps just one hyphen? ISBN13s should have four hyphens, but the placement is not the same for every ISBN. This tool determines where they should go.

    ISBN-13 e.g. 9783161484100 or 978-3161484100
  • CreateSpace Cover Template Generator

    Create a PDF file, a PNG file, and an ODG file

    This tool creates cover template files in PDF and PNG formats, and optionally in ODG format.

    The files conform to the CreateSpace cover requirements.

    PDF is a vector format, PNG is a raster format, and ODG is for OpenOffice.

    Just choose your trim size, number of pages, and paper type, and optional file formats.

    You can specify an ISBN if you want a barcode.

    Width e.g. 8.5
    Height e.g. 11
    Page count
    Paper type white cream colour
    OPTIONAL ISBN-13
    e.g. 978-3-16-148410-0

    (if $100 or more, use 99.99)
    Leave blank if not required
    Or 90000 for no set price
    Or any five digits
