ITF-14 Carton Codes

ITF-14 Carton Codes (also known as GTIN-14 or TUN) are 14-digit barcodes that go on the delivery containers for your retail products. They are based on the product’s EAN-13 barcode number.

Watch our short video to learn more about ITF-14 Carton Codes.

We will email your carton code images in 4 different formats (jpeg, png, SVG & pdf). You can then choose the format you prefer and print your carton code onto the delivery box.

Note: ITF-14 Codes are only used for the outer shipping containers/cartons containing the retail products. They are not used on retail products themselves (all products for retail sale need EAN barcodes, whether they are being sold individually or in bulk).

Please place your order below if you need an ITF-14 Carton Code.

    You will be asked to enter your EAN-13 barcode number on the checkout page (if you are purchasing an EAN-13 barcode at the same time as an ITF-14 barcode, then just type “N/A” because we will assign an EAN-13 barcode number to you, and then use that number to create your ITF-14 barcode images)

    NOTE: ITF-14 barcodes are for use on cartons for shipping, not for retail sale. If your carton is being sold at retail level, you should use an EAN-13 retail barcode on the carton.

How to use an ITF-14 Carton Code:

Example Number One:

If you want to deliver tins of tomatoes to supermarkets (and each tin is to be sold individually once in the supermarket), then you will need:

1) One EAN-13 barcode (e.g. ‘0123456789012’*) to go onto each of the tins; and

2) One ITF-14 Carton Code (based on your EAN barcode – i.e. ‘10123456789019’*) to be printed onto the delivery cartons.

* FYI: to turn an EAN-13 number into an ITF-14 number, a digit (usually a “1”) is added to the start of the EAN-13 number, and then the checksum digit (the last digit) is re-calculated.

Example Number Two:

If your tins of tomatoes were to be sold in the supermarkets both as a) individual tins and as b) 6-packs of tins, then you would need:

1) Two separate EAN-13 barcodes (one for the tins being sold individually, and the other for the 6-packs of tins); and

2) Two ITF-14 Carton Codes (one based on each of the EAN barcode numbers). One Carton Code would be printed onto the delivery box that contained the individual tins, and the other would be printed onto the delivery box that contained the 6-pack lots of tins.

Here are some common questions:

It is best practice to get a different barcode for each product or product variation. This is because stores use barcodes for two primary purposes: 1. Barcodes are used for obtaining the price of the product when scanned at the checkout. 2. Barcodes are used for keeping track of stock and deciding when to reorder an item.

This means that if the retailers only use barcodes for option 1, you can get away with having the same barcode for 2 product variations (i.e. different colours of the same product). However, if the retailer uses barcodes for option 2, then a different barcode will be required for each product variation.

In general, retailers prefer to stock products that will be straightforward to manage. Some retailers may prefer not to stock products if they manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore it is recommended that you have a different barcode for each variation.

Yes, they will. We can supply both EAN-13 Barcodes (used worldwide) and UPC-A Barcodes (USA and Canada).
Our barcodes are accepted in nearly all stores worldwide. However, there are a few exceptions. For further details, please see Barcode Acceptance.
ITF-14 Codes are 14-digit barcodes that go on the delivery containers for your retail products (they are based on the product’s EAN-13 barcode number)
