Free Bar Code Generator

More than 10 years ago I paid about $250 - $300 for a block of 10 ISBNs (that's International Standard Book Number). These are the IDs that appear in each book to give it a unique identifier. This usually appears on the back of the book above the barcode.

Fortunately, there are free barcode generators out there, and here's one I use (and recommend):

Since this is a free service, be a sport and donate a couple of bucks if you use this service.
