  • Remove all shrink wrap and adhesive seals before placing barcodes on items.
  • Place the barcode on the plastic cover of the cassette on the upper left corner of front cover. (Orient the cassette as shown in the image below.)
  • If necessary, cover text or pictures.

  • Any UPC (manufacturer barcode) labels near the Princeton barcode on the container should be manually blacked out with a black permanent marker directly on the cardboard. Do not black out the ISBN (if present).
  • If items in a set are to remain in a box supplied by the publisher, place one barcode on the front left corner of the box as shown in the image to the right, and one barcode of the same number on each item in the box. Prebindery/Plating can supply supplemental copies of the same numbered barcode, if needed.
