Can’t believe it was so user friendly. Wish other online services were half as good these guy’s. Thanks for the great and quick customer service. Brian C

I feel that the cost was ok. This is my first time using any thing like this.

The codes have been useful, and the corresponding numbers are easy to match.

Great value – As a self-publisher, it saved me paying much more from the printer/publisher. Cutting and pasting the text number and saving/dragging-&-dropping the bar code (onto a back cover template) were both a breeze. Thanks much!

The Basic ISBN is more than enough for my needs it provides a barcode and an ISBN. I just published a book, and I had no problem with any of my ISBN’s.
